Head to these shows for America.

You can’t celebrate all things America without good music. So in no particular order, here’s your guide for where to be on the 4th of July, fireworks and all. Let the sparks fly:

Nothing says America like Bruce butt.

Anarchy Blues will be shaking things up with a variety of original and cover tunes backyard BBQ style here. BYOB and kick your feet up with these dudes while sippin’ a cold one. Sun’s out, guns out- America tanks are a must kids.

Augustus is going to be pumping Americana through your veins at Conor O’Neill’s Irish Pub. They play from ten to two, so even if you’re catching earlier sets or nomming a late BBQ burger, you have plenty of time to swing in and get dancy. Need a reminder of their sound? See our articles on the boys here & here. And peep the event deets here.

Natural Motives are going to jazz-rock you at one of our favorite Boulder hangouts, The No Name Bar. We just wrote about these guys this week in an article here. Get jammy with them and let their reggae sounds groove you when you’re done lighting sparklers. Starts at ten!

Sun Jr. is at the Bohemian Biergarten with Nod & Rose Storehouse. Sun Jr. describe themselves as “a blend of rhythm, blues, soul, fuzz rock, and bluegrass.” Nod Norkus of Nod & Rose is on drums, so head down and get funky with these guys! Wear your most stylish America accessory to try and impress Nod. See the event specifics here.

Whiskey Autumn will be rocking the re-opening of Backcountry Pizza and Taphouse in Ned! Does anything say 'Merica like pizza and beer? We didn’t think so. We dig these boys, and wrote about them awhile back here. Join them for a dance party with a firework intermission. They’ll light you up right. See the firework and show schedule here.
