TGIF! We are soooo ready for the weekend. Here’s our six, Beaters:
Today (Friday, 01/15)
Amoramora with Natural Motives at The Armoury in Denver 9PM-Close
These two Boulder-based bands are hitting the D tomorrow night for a show at The Armoury. Amoramora want you to know that their set will be “original tunes mixed with bust-out covers; an eclectic mix of improvisational musical gumbo.” The trio is a funk/psych/roots/reggae mix that promises to “make you shake your groove thing”. And reggae rock group Natural Motives will be opening up the set to get you movin’! Plus live painting and visuals by Laura McGowan and Suncat. Go get down!
Listen to an Amoramora original, “Rafiki’s Expedition”:
Booster at The Lazy Dog in Boulder 10PM-Close
Rocket fuel, aka the “high-energy funk fusion powerhouse” that is Boulder’s Booster will be lockin’ down The Lazy Dog this evening! Their improvisational jazz, funk, rock, and “everything in-between” is sure to keep you moving all night long. The four-piece, who are best known for their “no guitars” rule, have some big plans for 2016 so catch this Boulder show while you can!
Give their live performance of “Fepic Jam” a listen:
A Shadow of Jaguar at Conor O’Neill’s Irish Pub in Boulder 10PM-Close
Boulder’s delta rock duo A Shadow of Jaguar have a show at Conor’s tonight that promises to “make you scrunch your face and nod your head”. Comprised of Brian Hubbert (also of Cold River City) and Andrew Oakley (also of Cold River City and BANDITS), this powerful duo will have Conor’s spinnin’. Though they’re Boulder-based, the two are so busy touring that they rarely have a local show. So drop in and catch ‘em while you can.
Watch the duo’s video for their single “Mama Needs The Bottle”:
Theogen at The No Name Bar in Boulder 10PM-Close
Denver’s Theogen describe themselves as “a group of people dedicated to pushing the boundaries of the live psychedelic electronic music experience”. We’re really in the psych sort of mood tonight, so this show behind the big brown door sounds like a Friday night win. Come get weird.
Peep Theogen’s “Solar Hymn”:
Tomorrow (Saturday, 01/16)
Dragondeer with Toi Et Moi, Mark’s Midnight Carnival Show, and Jocelyn & Chris Arndt at Larimer Lounge in Denver 8PM-Close
Denver’s psych/blues four piece Dragondeer will be rockin’ Larimer Lounge tonight with a sweet lineup of friends. Their swampy cosmic sounds will close out the night after appearances by Denver’s French retro outfit Toi Et Moi, indie rock trio Mark’s Midnight Carnival Show (also of Denver), and the touring rock four-piece Jocelyn & Chris Arndt. Tickets are only $10 in advance; $13 at the door. Show’s 21+. Get ‘em here.
Watch Dragondeer play “Don’t That Feel Good” live:
The Zimmermans at Conor O’Neill’s Irish Pub in Boulder 10PM-Close
If you like Bob Dylan, you should probably head over to Conor’s tomorrow night. The Zimmermans, Boulder’s favorite Bobby D cover band, will be rockin’ the stage. The group has been bringing BD’s sounds to Boulder and beyond for ten years now! Celebrate with them tonight at their show; it’s gonna be a good one.
Listen to their version of “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowehere”:
PS: This week, our Sunday feature with Green Light Radio and Streetside Productions will feature a track by Boulder rock group Villain Baritone! We’ll bring you a full rundown on them and their Studio 700 Music Masquerade show with us next week, but in the meantime, tune in between 9-10PM to 95.5 in Boulder, or stream it live to hear their song “Vines” Sunday night!
That’s a lot of sweet options Boulder! We’ll see you out there!
