This Week In Concerts — Deafheaven, Nathaniel Rateliff, The Main Squeeze, TROYBOI and More

This week in concerts, we’re well into the holiday season and winter is wrapping around the Denver Metro. The cold isn’t keeping the music away, though, and we’ve got a stack of great concerts lined up.

Denver local Nathaniel Rateliff will be bringing his band, the Night Sweats, to Ball Arena on 12/15. They’ll be supported by Mt. Joy and Jaime Wyatt and it’s sure to be a night to remember.

Deafheaven will be shredding Summit Hall on 12/13 – they’re celebrating the 10th anniversary of their incredible sophomore album Sunbather and are poised to tear the roof off.

The Main Squeeze is playing a two-set show at the Ogden Theatre on 12/16.  They’re bringing along an unbelievable collection of musicians in support, including members of Vulfpeck, Harry Styles, Lettuce, and Tauk. Don’t sleep on these sets by such incredible players!
