Monday, October 24

Recommended: Meshuggah @ The Ogden

Meshuggah, the extreme and experimental metal outfit from Sweden, will be shredding this Monday at the Ogden. The band is ramping up fans for their eighth studio album, The Violent Sleep of Reason, released earlier this month. Any fan of metal, as well as anyone with an appreciation of jazz, will enjoy the raucous sets that mash up quintessential death, thrash and progressive metal with notable elements of experimental jazz.

Tuesday, October 25

Recommended: Purity Ring @ The Ogden

Purity Ring, the Canadian, poppy EDM duo will be playing to a packed house Tuesday night at the Ogden. Take this opportunity to check out the chilly synth pop that has been amassing critical acclaim and literally breaking the internet since 2011. There was a single release in 2013 when fan reaction was so strong it crashed the servers of their online store.

Wednesday, October 26

Recommended: The Boxer Rebellion @ The Bluebird

April of this year, the Boxer Rebellion released their fifth studio album, Ocean by Ocean, and are touring to promote it. The group’s fame as crooning post-rock additions to the grungier British invasion of the late nineties is always a welcome sound as the leaves are changing and there is a chill in the air. You do not have to take our word for it, just enjoy this star-studded music video and decide for yourself.

Recommended: Giraffage/XXYYXX @ The Ogden

In case you were holding out, this is the show ideal for breaking out your Halloween costume. An ideal partnership between a DJ and a producer is hard to find but when two find their stride and tour together, the production is limitless. Dance the night away in style accompanied musically by this trippy duo.

Saturday, October 29

Recommended: Yellowcard @ Summit Music Hall

Scalp a ticket for Yellowcard’s Final World Tour but don’t tell anyone we said so. The band that for many millennials scored their summers in the early aughts is winding down a fun and vibrant career. Their last Denver stop is at Summit Music Hall, one of the most fun venues of Denver to act 21-years-old in. It may not be Ocean Avenue but for us in the 303, we’ll have to say our goodbyes at Summit.

Sold out.

Sunday, October 30

Recommended: Good Charlotte @ The Gothic

Speaking of the early aughts, Good Charlotte is in town on Sunday and they are not the only ones. Sunday’s musical line-up in the city was hard to narrow down! We do want to recommend Good Charlotte if only for their staying power, one of the few bands where just reading the name of any given single will get it stuck in your head. Enjoy the pop punk outfit at the Gothic and revel in the irony that their most famous song was critiquing the lifestyles of the wealthy and successful.
