There are a lot of concerts to look forward to this week as we head into the middle of December. We are about half-way through the month, which means time is running out to squeeze in as many shows to your 2018 roster as you can. There are over 100 concerts going on this week which means there’s bound to be something for everyone in the mix. We’ve compiled all of the shows going on across the Mile High City for you below, so take care and enjoy what the Denver music scene has to offer.

Monday, December 10

Recommended: Dua Lipa w/ Chloe Tang @ The Fillmore

To kick things off on Monday, British pop star Dua Lipa is returning to The Fillmore. Earlier this year, Lipa was set to perform at The Fillmore but the singer’s performance was postponed due to health issues. Now that the singer is back to full strength, she is returning to the Mile High City. Colorado’s own Chloe Tang is set to open up for Lipa on her makeup Denver date this Monday, making this a great blend of local and national talent.

If you’re a fan of Radiohead, this is the show for you this week. Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke is taking over Paramount Theatre on Tuesday.

On Saturday, Denver’s own indie-pop band Slow Caves is taking over Lost Lake. 2018 was a great year for Slow Caves, and they should definitely be on your radar as we approach 2019. Back in 2017, the band released their debut EP Desert Minded, which is a great starting point if you’re new to their sound. Back in November, Slow Caves released a live EP which will give you a taste of their concerts. Fellow Colorado acts Modern Leisure and Corsicana are on the Saturday evening ticket as well.

Recommended: Emma Ruth Rundle w/ Jaye Jayle, Abrams @ Lost Lake

To wrap up this week in Denver concerts, California-based artist Emma Ruth Rundle is headed to Denver to take over Lost Lake on Sunday. Rundle is no stranger to the music industry as the multi-faceted musician has been part of multiple projects and has taken on multiple different roles over the years. She’s released solo albums, formed bands and experimented with her own sound, to name a few. Now, Rundle is venturing out on a solo tour. Rundle just celebrated the release of her most recent album On Dark Horses earlier this year and is touring in support of its release. Fellow artists Jaye Jayle and Abrams are joining Rundle on her Denver tour stop. Tickets are still available to see Rundle in action, so act now before it’s too late.
