This Week In Concerts — Joey Porter’s Shady Business, Two Door Cinema Club, Subtronics and More!

We’ve got a beautiful week ahead of us here in Denver, and it’s the perfect set-up for a long holiday weekend full of shows!

Killer keys player Joey Porter is bringing his Shady Business to Cervantes’ Other Side on 5/24 with the DJ Williams Band on the bill to start the party properly. Normally holding down the ivories for phenomenal funk band The Motet, Joey Porter’s Shady Business will be bringing an all-new groove to Cervantes and it’s guaranteed to be a party.

Indie darlings Two Door Cinema Club are coming to the Mission Ballroom on 5/25 in support of their most recent album Keep On Smiling with support from the equally excellent Day Wave. Having started strong nearly 15 years ago with their seminal debut album Tourist History and having held that momentum ever since, this will be an amazing show for fans of every release.

Subtronics is back in town for his annual Red Rocks run on 5/23 and 5/24 and he’s truly gone all out with some unbelievable lineups—Level Up, SAMPLIFIRE B2B AUTOMHATE, BEASTBOI. and SANZU B2B INAKTIV on Thursday and Tape B, Ternion Sound, Grabbitz, THE CARACAL PROJECT and ZEN SELEKTA on deck for Friday. As if that wasn’t enough, Subtronics will be workin’ all night long at his own afters at the Gothic Theatre both 5/23 and 5/24—these are some seriously can’t-miss shows.
