The Weekend Six: Six Shows to See 08/14 & 08/15

By: Hannah Oreskovich

Friday and Saturday are finally here! Check out these Boulder shows the next two nights:

Today (Friday 08/14):

Ramaya and The Troubadours at The Laughing Goat Coffeehouse 8PM-Close

Ramaya is an LG regular. His sound has been described as “blending echoes of Iron & Wine, Ryan Adams, Wilco, and Jeff Buckley.” The last time we saw him, he brought the audience onstage for a Michael Jackson jam. Righteous. Roll to his show tonight and preview his music here.

The Goonies at The Bohemian Biergarten 9PM-Close

This iconic 80s film is also the name of one of Boulder’s most popular cover bands. They play a lot of 80s jams and will be rocking the Biergarten stage tonight. So if you want to get drunk on Das Boot and loudly sing along to Journey bro, this one’s for you.

Global Soul Experience at The Lazy Dog 10PM-Close

If you’re in the mood for some samba or sweet afrobeats, this show is a must. The GSE are from Boulder and blend a ton of genres together for an awesome listening experience. Go to this show if you’re in the mood for something funky and different. They will not disappoint.

James Thorpe at The No Name Bar 10PM-Close

James Thorpe will be rocking out behind the big brown door this evening. Ironically, he’s played a number of shows with Ramaya and other members of The Troubadours Collective, but tonight you can see him shine solo. Head on over.

Tomorrow (Saturday 08/15):

Monocle Stache at The Dark Horse 930PM-Close

We dig the name dudes. The Stache boys hail from Rollinsville, CO and are self-proclaimed “stoner rock”. They have a Red Hot Chili Peppers vibe happening- you can check out their EP Prairie Fire here. Grab a Dark Horse burger and peep the Stache set.

Salem at Oskar Blues Homemade Liquids and Solids 830PM-Close

Salem blend R&B, soul, and jazz for some seriously smooth listening. Frontwoman Ashley Sterling has a rich, hypnotizing voice and Cat Ackermann keeps things groovin’ on the keys. Grab a brew and give this five-piece from Breckenridge, CO a listen.
