It’s that time of week again Boulder, aka the best time: the weekend. And here are the six shows you should see the next two nights:
Today (Friday 07/30):
Dear Landlord at Pearl Street Pub and Cellar 5PM-9PM
It’s been a minute since we’ve seen a good punk show around these parts. But luckily, Denver-based band Dear Landlord is gracing the Boulder scene tonight. Headbanging is a must and we might try to start a mosh pit. Not sure if The Pub knows what they’re in for…
Chris Kroger and Friends at Under the Sun 830PM-Close
Jazz and a good beer sounds nice right about now (too early, I know). But that’s what Under the Sun is gonna give you tonight with Denver musician Chris Kroger and Friends. So drop on in for a cold one and some piano pieces.
The Johnny O Trio at License No. 1 9PM-Close
The Johnny O Band has been playing shows throughout Colorado for 17 years. Hear a few of their members jam the blues for you over a nice No. 1 Old Fashioned. This show sounds like an especially good fit for you if you’re looking to reminisce on your love life over bourbon and blues.
Tomorrow (Saturday 07/31):
Steepland String Band at The Lazy Dog Sports Bar and Grill 8PM-Close
If there’s one thing Boulder loves, it’s a string band. The SSB have a rock and bluegrass sound, which you can check out on their EP Little Pay. The Lazy Dog has a decent stage setup, so roll down to dance with these guys tomorrow!
Pistachio at The Laughing Goat Coffeehouse 8-9PM
Though Pistachio aren’t a local act, their funky dance rock beats will bring some grooviness to the LG tomorrow night. They’re Oakland bred, and are currently on tour, so prepare for an energetic show. They just released a new music video, so check out their intergalactic style here.
El Javi at The Laughing Goat Coffeehouse 9PM-Close
El Javi is a latin-flamenco fusion outfit originally from L.A. But in recent months, El Javi has been hanging around Boulder and playing a number of local venues. Javier Gutierrez is the gypsy force behind the project, but sometimes he has other musicians on stage with him. He’s got a flair that is fascinating to watch. Check out his show!
