It’s that time again, campers. That beautiful moment on Monday mornings when you take a break from whining about being back at your cubicle to read 303 Magazine‘s list of what shows you should be getting rowdy at in the next seven days. This week, spring settles in with some seriously sick shows for your enjoyment. Let’s take a gander at our list of Denver concerts you just can’t miss, shall we?
Monday, March 14
August Burns Red and Between the Buried and Me
Oh look, your favorite Metalcore group is back in town, and they brought friends. This blast from 2003’s past will be making their way to Summit Music Hall early on this week, and in tow is a complete schedule of boy band fun, with Between the Buried and Me and Good Tiger as supporting acts. This show’s price varies from $29 to $32, so you might want to get in there early and save yourself a few bucks for parking. The doors open at 5:30, which leaves plenty of time for pre-show mingling.
Tuesday, March 15
Atlanta rapper Future will make his mile high debut on Tuesday by bringing his Purple Reign tour to the Fillmore. The trap star has put out a slew of music lately, so this tour comes at an exciting time for Denver. Ty Dolla $ign and Lil Donald are the supporting acts. Tickets to the show are running $39.75, and the doors open at 7.
If Trap beats and Auto-tune are not your thing, it would be a good move to shimmy two blocks east on Colfax Tuesday night and catch the Daughter show at the Ogden. A band that has simply blown up in the last couple of years, it is hard to tell how much longer this group will be attainable in such a small venue. Tickets are on the cheaper side of things at $22.00, and this show starts at 8.
Friday March 18
The ever talented Nashvillians that make up Moon Taxi will be strumming and humming this upcoming Friday night at the Bluebird Theater. A favorite of Denver, these cats will be bringing the Congress along to fill up the bill. The cost of the show is $25.00, and is a 16 and over show. Do not forget how intimate the Bluebird can be, so venture to the box office ahead of time to beat the dreaded ‘sold out’ sign.
Saturday March 19
This Psychobilly trio of Detroit-natives will come rocking into our city on Saturday for only $16.00. Add in the beer and the wounds from the mosh pit, and you’re looking at a fantastic weekend eve for under $30.00. In this financial climate, who can afford to pass that up? Show starts at 8, and this show is at our friend The Gothic.
Sunday March 20
The Gypsy-punk band from New York is back in town, and the only thing we know for sure is that they are here to party. The huge ensemble will be joining us Denver folk at the Ogden Theater on Sunday night, for $35.00, and if that price stings do not wait until the day of as the price jumps up another five bones. Get there by 8 at the latest and you can catch Debauche opening up the night.
So, there you have it, a full week party rocking shows to keep your mind altered from the daily grind. We at 303 send out a big “you’re welcome” to your ears and an even bigger “I’m sorry” to your wallet.
