It’s the weekend. Per usual, here’s your six Boulder:
Today (Friday 08/21)
The Polkanauts at Bohemian Biergarten 9PM-Close
That’s right Beat kids. Polka. But not just traditional polka. The Denver-based Polkanauts play metal, rock, punk, and surf variations of polka. Curious how this is done? We are too. So check out their show!
Moonwavve at Johnny’s Cigar Bar 9PM-Close
This electronic outfit is one of our Boulder faves. Remember when we wrote about them here? Eason’s voice combined with Warwick’s synth will take you into space. So launch yourself by rolling to Johnny’s tonight! Word on the street is they have a pretzel machine now. Time to nom.
The Zimmermans at Conor O’Neills Traditional Irish Pub 10PM-Close
The Zimmerman boys have been bringing Bob Dylan’s sounds to Boulder ears since 2006. Their covers rock out and as you know, we think Conor’s is always a fun time. Johnny’s and Conor’s are in close proximity, so double dip to both shows for a night full of good tunes.
Tomorrow (Saturday 08/22)
Bareface at Boulder Outdoor Cinema 730PM-Dusk
We just wrote about how much we dig this doo-wop lounge band yesterday. So tomorrow is your chance to lend an ear. They’ll all be dressed in costume for this screening of The Princess Bride, and they’d love it if you grooved with them before the film. So head on over.
The Heavy Pets at Owsley’s Golden Road 8PM-Close
Get ready for some heavy petting tomorrow at Owsley’s. This five piece jam band from Florida have been around for a decade, and even played big festivals like Bonnaroo and Wakarusa years ago. So if you couldn’t see them then, or you’re just in the mood to chill at a bar with The Grateful Dead acid bears painted all over it, this one’s for you.
That’s it Boulder! Pick a show and we’ll see you there!
