This Week In Concerts – The Motet, Weezer and More

Weezer concert by Brendan Walter

Late July is the perfect time to catch a concert at Red Rocks and thankfully the venue is hosting a show everyday this week. This week is also the best for seeing a local or homegrown act, as Colorado bands are headlining venues from The Larimer Lounge to Red Rocks.

Indie singer-songwriter Sufjan Stevens is making a stop at Red Rocks Amphitheater as he wraps up his tour for Carrie & Lowell that brought him to Coachella, Sasquatch!, Boston Calling and Pitchfork Music Festival.

Not only is Stevens is bringing his own chill, psychedelic sound to Colorado’s best venue, but he’s sharing the stage with the LA-based R&B duo Rhye.

Portugal. The Man is making a stop at Red Rocks this week, but that show has long been sold out. The band’s concert at the Fox doesn’t have any regular sale tickets left either, but you can find resales for around $50, which isn’t a bad price to see perfection.

Not only is every band playing at Cervantes’ Wednesday night a joy to listen to, but the show supports both your local music scene and earthquake victims in Ecuador.


Alt-rock duo They Might Be Giants is headlining The Ogden this Wednesday after the band’s March show was canceled due to inclement weather.

Greensky Bluegrass is bringing their banjo, mandolin, dobro and guitar to Red Rocks on Saturday.
