The Weekend Six: Six Shows to See This Labor Day Weekend

By: Hannah Oreskovich

It’s a three-day weekend, so spend it at some shows Colorado:

Today (Friday 09/02):

A Shadow of Jaguar with The Red Petals at The Lazy Dog in Boulder 10PM-Close

A Shadow of Jaguar.

Colorado’s A Shadow of Jaguar officially announced this week that tonight’s show at The LD will be their last in CO for a while, as the delta rock’n’roll duo are moving to New York. We’ve enjoyed a number of live shows from ASOJ over the years, and they’ve promised they’ll still be playing Colorado on tour as regularly as their busy show schedule allows. But it will be a minute until they make their way back to our mountains, so make sure to stop in at their show tonight and say your goodbyes! They’ll be joined onstage by The Red Petals, a Colorado trio of the blues rock variety who we first covered here. We’ll be here tonight, and so should you.

Watch ASOJ’s music video for their track “Mama Needs The Bottle”:

Colorado’s funk fusion four-piece Booster recently switched up their lineup and added some new tunes to their repertoire. We sat down with them recently to learn all about it, so catch those details before you roll to their set tomorrow afternoon. The band blasts off before Phish’s show, so roll to Vine Street Pub for this funky pre-party. You can peep Booster’s new tunes, and get ready to groove to Phish. Now that’s a good combo.

And tomorrow, those artists will be performing the EP live at The No Name Bar. Head over for this special afternoon dance party and groove out. It’s gonna be sweet! The EP will also be available for purchase tomorrow here.

The Next Day (Sunday 09/04):

Gregory Alan Isakov.

Boulder-based singer/songwriter Gregory Alan Isakov is making his return to Red Rocks this weekend, this time as a headliner. Sunday’s show is Isakov’s last in the US for quite some time, as he’s jetting overseas in September for the remainder of his tour. Ani DiFranco shares this bill, and Shook Twins will open the evening. Plus, you don’t work Monday, so you’ve got no excuse not to be at the best venue in the world Sunday night. Get your tickets now.
