Ben Hanna Band at Still Cellars 630PM-Close

Rumor has it that Ben Hanna has been working on a followup album to his 2013 debut “We Were All Like Whatever” with local producer Robbie Stiefel. We’re hoping to hear some of those new tracks at this show! So come grab a brew and hang out!

Community Music Night at eTown Hall 7PM-9PM

What cooler way to support Boulder’s music community than to head to eTown for a night of “every-day folk: scientists, educators, engineers and more” playing music? It’s a bunch of Boulderites with a passion for “full band soul, folk/bluegrass, pop, classical, and even on-the-spot comedic originals.” It’s only $10 so check it out!

Grupo Chegando Lá at The Laughing Goat Coffeehouse 8PM-Close

Last week, we mentioned Sambadende’s awesome show at the St. Julien. Tonight, some of the members of that group will be bringing samba sounds to The Laughing Goat under the name Grupo Chegando Lá. It’s definitely a show worth checking out, so go boogie!

Tomorrow (Saturday, 09/26)

Whiskey Autumn at The Merc 8PM-Close

Pardon me for my selfish ways, but TOMORROW IS MY BIRTHDAY! And I’ll be spending it at one of my all-time favorite Colorado joints, The Merc, with one of my all-time favorite Boulder bands, Whiskey Autumn! I’ll be snapping photos, dancing on tables with Matteo, and generally having an awesome night, so come join us all!

The Growlers at The Fox Theatre 830PM-Close

“Take five SoCal guys, mix in some surf, stone, and psychedelic, and throw them in a haunted mansion in West Ho Chi Minster and with a little luck, you might get a band like The Growlers.” Sounds like a good time to me! Check it out for less than $25 at the Fox tomorrow night.

Punch Drunk Munkey Funk at Conor O’Neill’s 10PM-Close

Punch Drunk Munkey Funk are making the drive from Fort Collins to dance with us tomorrow night at Conor’s. They’re a five piece who blend “funk, jazz, hip hop, R&B, rock, & soul.” Sounds like they got a jam for just about everyone, so go groove with these cool cats.

See you around! Xoxo

Sambadende are a Boulder-based samba reggae outfit who have been performing Brazilian music together since 2001. They will be breaking beats in the St. Julien lobby on the earlier-side of this evening, so stop in while you’re cruising Pearl for a dance or two.

Acoustic Ambush at The No Name Bar 10PM-Close

Sometimes it’s nice to head out for the night and discover surprisingly sweet sounds that you weren’t expecting. The No Name always provides this fix. Who will be in the acoustic ambush tonight? We don’t know, but we know it will be awesome. Go take a peek behind the big brown door.

Bareface and Derang at The Deer Pile 830PM-???

We featured Bareface about a month ago here. We love their grooves, and they’re playing with their friends Derang tonight, who they told us have a “Persian psychedelic” sound. Bareface’s Robert Collins is heading to Ireland soon for a few months, so this is one of your last chances to catch this group before 2016! Don’t miss it! Get to the DP.

Tomorrow (Saturday, 09/19)

Jelly Bread.

Jelly Bread at The Lazy Dog Sports Bar and Grille 10PM-Close  

Jelly Bread are a band from Reno who “blend desert twang with the urban tones of funk and rock.” They’re touring the West this fall and are releasing their next studio album, Here, There, & Everywhere soon. You can preview their music here before you hit the LD.

It's Gonna Be a Late one.

Late Night Radio at The Fox Theatre 9PM-Close

Late Night Radio is a Denver-based electronic and hip-hop DJ. He’s jetting off on tour the next couple of weeks, but he’s stopping in Boulder before he heads to the Midwest. You can check out some of his tracks here and the show is only $12. Go shake yo hips with LRD.

Andrew Bonnis at The No Name Bar 10PM-Close

Bonnis is a man of many talents. He can play just about every instrument around, and he will be bringing several with him to The No Name tomorrow night for a great performance. You can listen to some of his work here before you head to the show. We can guarantee people will be dancing.

Another weekend of sweet sounds Boulder! Get out there!
