Even what some will say is a ‘”slow” week for music, there is always plenty to see this in the Mile High City if you know where to look. From English alternative rock to a mini 2-day electronic festival, here is you weekly guide to Denver concerts from 303 Magazine. Check back every week for your round up of shows not to miss in Denver and beyond!
Monday, April 25th
Deerhunter @ The Gothic Theatre
Like usual, the week starts off right away with a band with just the right amount of energy to get the mind right. Atlanta based Deerhunter will grace the Gothic Theatre with their experimental noise rock band. They have been hitting the indie rock circuit for well over a decade and eccentric front man Bradford Cox will know how to put on a show with his classic ambient voice.
Tuesday, April 26th
Foals @ The Ogden Theatre
A band that became popular through playing house parties, Foals will surely know how to turn your Tuesday blues around. This English indie-rock quintet is upbeat and high energy, yet have modern rock flare that is easy on the ears. You don’t want to miss this show!
Hudson Mohawke @ Cervantes
Ross Birchard is the one of the most exciting record producers to come out of Scotland in the last ten years, seducing rap-heads and ravers alike with his neon-lit R&B and warehouse smashing low-end beats. Now, as the unlikely poster boy for a new generation of genre-mangling UK artists, he’s touring his live festival & club shows across the globe and producing for chart- topping urban-pop names like Kanye West, Chris Brown and Azealia Banks.

Friday & Saturday April 29th-30th
The Unified Field – Official Sonic Bloom Pre Party @ Cervantes
If you’re a dance and/or festival goer you must know of Colorado’s premier electronic festival Sonic Bloom. Every year Cervantes hosts their little urban version of the festival as a pre-party for the summer adventure. With over twenty acts over Friday and Saturday this will sure be a wild time featuring some great up-and-comers like Giraffage, Louis the Child and Defunk. The two-night run will also honor the late DJ Pumpkin, a legend and, more importantly, an amazing friend to the dance festival scene.
Sunday, May 1st
Jadakiss @ Cervantes
Don’t think the week is over yet, Cervantes has got one more name that you maybe haven’t heard in a while. Hip-hop veteran Jadakiss will be making his way through Denver to showcase his new album Top 5 Dead Or Alive. One of our favorite rappers of the 2000s definitely has experience getting what every crowd he can muster to raise their hand and bob their heads.
