The Heartstring Hunters with Molly Kollier and LeesaAnn at The Laughing Goat in Boulder 8PM-Close
Indie-folk act The Heartstring Hunters are headlining a show at the LG tonight, and will likely be playing some new music for you, as their first full-length album is rumored to drop this summer. Local singer/songwriter LeesaAnn will open up tonight’s entertainment, followed by Boulder-based soulful folk singer/songwriter Molly Kollier. It should be an awesome lineup to listen to as you jump headfirst into the weekend, so go check it out!
Peep The Heartstring Hunters’ “Let’s Let Go” (Live):
Banshee Tree at Conor O’Neill’s Irish Pub in Boulder 10PM-Close
Experimental swing/blues outfit Banshee Tree are playing Conor’s tonight! This five-piece will definitely make you groove, so come ready to dance! They’ve been called a mix of “gypsy jazz, folk pop, and swing”. They always draw a great crowd, so come grab an Irish Car Bomb and hang out.

Tomorrow (Saturday 04/30):
Halfoween at Lost Lake Lounge in Denver 9PM-Close
It’s halfway to Halloween (weird, right?) and tomorrow LLL is celebrating with “Frankenstein bands”, aka five groups of musicians who have been put together from a pool of 18 different Colorado bands. There will, of course, be a costume contest with treats from Twist & Shout Records and Illegal Pete’s, cash prizes, and more. So put on last year’s costume, or grab yourself some fresh threads, and hit the town tomorrow night for Halfoween!
More info on this event here.
Many Mountains at The No Name Bar in Boulder 10PM-Close
Acoustic rock/blues act Many Mountains will be hitting the floor behind the big brown door tomorrow night. The three-piece dropped their self-titled EP last summer and boast “acoustic rhythms with melodic, reverberous riffs”. Sounds like a solid night! Head on over.
Listen to Many Mountains’ “Lost In Love”:
