This week, Denver’s music scene is no different than the other 52 weeks that comprise the year. With a wide range of music, there is always a show to see at the various incredible Denver venues. The music scene compliments the unique life that beats within this city, and the 303 is too blessed to be stressed when it comes to live music. Let’s check out who’s gracing the area in concerts this week.

A side project from Black Moth Super Rainbow, Tobacco, A.K.A. Thomas Fec, is a very experimental solo artist. Fec uses Tobacco as a platform to mess around with some of this electronic production, sampling many different sounds and melodies to create indie-pop music that has a very unique signature. Though it can get a bit dark, Tobacco provides a truly distinctive live performance that creates an atmosphere of euphoria. 2016 brought some new music for Tobacco with the release of his newest album, Sweatbox Dynasty.

Creating a beautiful marriage between R&B and hip-hop, Tory Lanez is a producer and musician who began to make a splash in the music scene with his 2015 single “Say It.” His vocal range allows his music to bounce from smooth to heavy, creating a very unique sound. Lanez has made music with artists like Sean Kingston, and this has helped him gain more attraction within the music scene. His 2016 track, “LUV,” became a club hit, and even featured a remix from Sean Kingston. This mid-week show at the Gothic will be sure to please R&B and hip-hop fans alike.

NYC producer and muscian Blockhead, Anthony Simon, will be returning to Denver on Thursday. Blockhead will be accompanied by Lusine with Blacksmith (feat. Clark Smith from Dynohunter) and Mux MoolBlockhead. Blockhead is a renown producer, getting his name first out there with the rise of Aesop Rock, as he produced the beats for this indie-rapper and helped him to ascend to popularity. Blockhead in return received a lot of recognition as a producer within the music scene because of this, but his own music is a testament to how extremely talented he is. His iconic song and music video “The Music Scene” is one of his top tracks, as well as the euphoric “Insomniac Olympics” and “Carnivores Unite.” This humble artist is truly special, and Thursday’s show is sure to be filled with top-of-the line music and production at Cervantes’.

Singer and musician Nancy Whang, of the legendary NYC LCD Soundsystem, will grace Denver with her presence on Friday night for her DJ set at Ophelia’s. Providing a very powerful solo show, Nancy Whang takes elements from LCD’s sound and creates a signature set of her own, filled with funky keyboards, catchy beats and sexy lyrics. Whang creates a dance-punk sound that borders indie but contains enough electronic elements to get you off your feet. Ophelia’s will be the perfect place to see this extremely talented artist, as it provides an intimate DJ set with the legendary musician. If you’re looking to dance yourself clean from this week’s trials and tribulations, Whang’s DJ set is a must-see.

Cervantes’ will be no different, and is sure to be filled with immense energy and power as Wookiefoot does what they do best: put on an incredible live show. Wookiefoot also uses their music to create change in the world, as they are a non-profit charity organization who has helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to help those in need in third-world countries. They are the epitome of a band that uses their music and shows to help make change in the world.

Five Finger Death Punch are recreating the sound of groove metal music since their inception in 2006. With dark but powerful lyrics, matched with heavy guitar riffs, deep bass lines and punching drums, Five Finger Death Punch create a sound that flows in and out of the rock genre. The Way of the Fist, an appropriate album title for the band’s name, was their debut album and really put this band on the rise. Since then, they haven’t looked back and continued to create new music. Their show at the Pepsi Center is sure to be loud and rockin’, feeding the hunger from Denver fans awaiting their return.
