Slowly but surely, the often unpredictable Colorado weather is beginning to shift, which means it’s time to squeeze in as many concerts as you possibly can before Red Rocks and other outdoor venues close for the season. As we approach the middle of September, the Denver concert scene is showing no signs of slowing down. You can celebrate a local band’s album release, see a classic rock legend in action or catch a reggae show at Red Rocks this week as we enter the second half of the month. We have some recommendations for you below, but in the mean time, we’ve compiled a playlist of all our recommended acts for the week.

Monday, September 11

Recommended: Geographer w/ Foxxes, CRL CRRLL @ Globe Hall

The San Francisco indie-pop group Geographer is headed out of The Bay and into the Mile High City to kick off the week on Monday at Globe Hall. Geographer’s music contains elements of electro-pop mixed with some laid back grooves. Denver based indie-rockers Foxxes will be providing direct support alongside Denver electronic musician CRL CRRLL. We always are proud to see our local artists have the chance to open up for national acts, and you have the chance to go and support some great local talent.

Tuesday, September 12

Recommended: Sammy Hagar and The Circle w/ Collective Soul, Andrew Hagar aka Drew Hagus @ Fiddler’s Green Amphitheatre

Whether you know him from his time in the legendary rock group, Van Halen, or for his solo work throughout the decades, Sammy Hagar is headed to Denver on Tuesday as he brings his band The Circle to Fiddler’s Green. Hagar is known for his piercing vocal chops and his classic rock-n-roll timbre. To make it even better, 90’s rock group Collective Soul is on the bill as well. To round out the evening, Hagar’s son, Andrew Hagar (aka Drew Hagus) will be performing, which reinforces the cliche — like father like son. If you’re looking for a little bit of classic rock, this will be the show to go to.

This will be one badass show and tickets are still available.

Recommended: Rebelution w/ Nahko & Medicine For The People, HIRIE, DJ Mackle @ Red Rocks

It is no secret that the members of Rebelution love coming to Red Rocks as they seem to return every year, but hey, we’re not complaining. Last year, the reggae band released a live album recorded in our very own backyard at Red Rocks. Rebelution is always known to put on a great show, and we have a good feeling this year won’t be any different. Joining Rebelution will be the multi-cultural band Nahko & Medicine For The People, the Phillipina reggae star HIRIE and DJ Mackle. Treat yourself to an end-of-the-week concert, and grab some tickets.

Recommended: The California Honeydrops w/ Mama Magnolia @ The Ogden Theatre

The California Honeydrops sound like they would have made a great addition to the original Woodstock concert. The bluesy rock band out of Oakland is headed to Denver on Sunday at The Ogden. The California Honeydrops made their way into the scene back in 2008 and have been releasing content fairly regularly. Opening up for the blues ensemble is the soulful group Mama Magnolia, this show will be great for your soul and is worth checking out.
