Are you enjoying August so far? If not, we have some killer concerts lined up for the second week of this month. Take full advantage of the Denver music scene by checking out the last fully booked month of Red Rocks, an outdoor day festival at Fiddler’s Green or a local brunch show in LoDo. Happy concert going from us to you.

Monday, August 7

If you’re looking for some indie rock to kick off this week, alt-J will be headlining Red Rocks with support from Tove Lo and SOHN. The English trio of alt-J are no strangers to the Red Rocks stage as they have headlined before and are known to sell out the venue quickly. alt-J is also celebrating their latest album Relaxer, released in 2017. As always, start off your week the right way with a night a Red Rocks.
