The Weekend Six: Six Shows to See 08/07 & 08/08

By: Hannah Oreskovich

Hey friends! We’ve been a bit absent on the scene this week working on some cool upcoming features, but you know we’re all about weekend shows, so here’s where to be the next two nights:

Today (Friday 08/07):

Augustus at Twisted Pine Brewing Co. 7PM-Close

We’ve got a piece hitting the site next week courtesy of Pete Laffin on these boys and their new EP Into Frames! Go peep this show, listen to their new tunes, and check back with us Monday to read Pete’s latest on Augustus!

Bateria Alegria at The Pearl Street Mall 730PM

The Colorado Brazil Fest is bringing some awesome Samba percussion to the Mall this evening. There will be music and dance performances by Boulder Samba School’s Bateria Alegria and Samba Colorado right in front of the Courthouse. Their drums will get your heart beating so stop by!

Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats at The Fox Outdoor Stage 9PM-????

Rateliff has been a Denver-based singer-songwriter for many moons now. But recently, he has picked up mad steam with his group The Night Sweats (peep their performance on Jimmy Fallon this week here, for which they got a standing ovation). They have an amazing folk/rock/R&B thing happening, and believe us when we say that NR & The Night Sweats are one of the biggest bands to be watching out for right now. We have a feeling they are going to jet off into some serious fame here soon. Tonight’s performance is free. Come hang with the cool kids.

The War on Drugs at The Fox Theatre 830PM-Close

Though they aren’t local, this is going to be an amazing Fox show. These Philly boys will be heartland-rocking you deep into the night, and though the show is a bit pricey, you won’t be disappointed. Start with Rateliff and end with Granduciel? Yes please.

Tomorrow (Saturday 08/08):

Foxfeather at The Laughing Goat Coffeehouse 8PM-Close

Boulder folk outfit Foxfeather will be jamming at the LG tomorrow, and you should be too. Let this female-fronted band croon to you over a tasty latte! Emily Scott Robinson will also be performing at this event.

Sumilan at The Lazy Dog Sports Bar and Grill 10PM-Close

These progressive rock/trance dance dudes are going to be jumping around the stage at The Lazy Dog tomorrow night and they have a sound worth checking out! They’re from Athens, Georgia and are finishing up their summer tour. Listen to them here before the show. 

 Sumi boys.

Get to it Boulder. Happy weekend.
