Shows This Week in Denver

Tuesday, July 16

New Kids on the Block/98 Degrees/Boyz II Men – 1st Bank – where women in their late 30’s go to act like Beliebers. Hate all you want, but their song “Tonight” is pop perfection that could fit on Sgt. Pepper (seriously): live video of “Tonight”

Peter Murphy/ OURS – Summit Music Hall – former singer of Bauhaus, OG Goth

John Mayer – Red Rocks – take away the celebrity and he’s one of the best modern blues guitarists I’ve seen

Wednesday, July 17

Herbie Hancock tribute – Cervantes – this will be hot

Greg Garrison Trio and Andy Thorn – The Armoury – Leftover Salmon’s magic fingered picker joins the stage at this Wednesday’s residency, go early, it WILL fill up

Groundscore – Park House – great bluegrass at a great little venue

Thursday, July 18

Bruce Hornsby – Denver Botanical Gardens (York) – I’m a Deadhead. I will see anyone that ever played with them. That’s just the way it is.

Prairie Home Companion – Red Rocks – Garrison Keillor brings his distinct voice to the monoliths. If it doesn’t rain this will be a wonderful night.

The UMS – I’ll have a guide to the showcase for everyone tomorrow.

Friday, July 19

Blake’s Tiger Party – Bar Standard – this should be a great dance party, final installment of Denver Disco and Road to Phibstock parties, previous ones have been a lot of fun. Info here!

The UMS

Jimmy Eat World – Ogden – always had a soft spot for these guys, they sound fantastic live

Kenny Chesney – Sports Authority – I’m not really saying I’d go to this, but I’d love to rubberneck the parking lot. Did you SEE what the people in Pittsburgh did?? I’d imagine the Denver scene would have recycling bins everywhere: trash and fighting video

John Statz – Walnut Room – songwriter with a playful twinkle in his eye, he’s a lot of fun

Foxfield Four – Gothic – local band heavily influenced by Ben Folds and Jerry Lee Lewis. If you like super catchy poppy goodness, check them out: listen here, so so good
