It feels like the chilly fall weather snuck up on Denver overnight with how up and down the temperature has been lately. It’s even rumored to snow today, which affected our Red Rocks schedule — The xx show was moved to 1st Bank Center. Regardless of whatever is happening up in the sky, we’ve got some great concerts down in the Mile High City this week. There are more than 100 shows to choose from as we dive into the second week of October.

Monday, October 9

The xx was supposed to headline Red Rocks for the first time in the band’s history this week. However, the electro-indie group’s show was moved to 1st Bank Center due to the weather forecast. In a statement on Facebook, AEG Presents Rocky Mountains said, “Due to a significant drop in temperatures and between 3-6 inches of snow with a winter storm watch forecasted for Red Rocks on Monday, The xx concert scheduled for Red Rocks Amphitheatre Monday October 9, 2017 has been moved to 1STBANK Center.”  The xx have been on the scene since 2009 with the release of their debut self-titled album and celebrated their most recent release of I See You back in January of this year. Joining The xx is Seattle-based glam rocker Perfume Genius.

The Philidelphia indie-rock band The War On Drugs is heading down to East Colfax to headline The Odgen twice on Saturday and Sunday. The War On Drugs began in 2005 and are still going strong 12 years later. In August of this year, the band released their latest album A Deeper Understanding which, well, gave us a deeper understanding into the band’s energetic take on indie-rock. Fellow indie-rock band The Building is on the bill for the evening as well which will make these two shows a celebration of indie music.
