Tomorrow (Saturday 02/13):
February House Concert from The Birdhouse Concert Series featuring Weary Bones and Ben Hanna & The Knighthawks in Boulder 7PM-Close
Longmont’s Weary Bones will be opening up this lovely evening at The Birdhouse with their “unique harmonies and beautifully odd guitar to bring their honest lyrics to life”. And then Ben Hanna & the Knighthawks will make you sweat. Seriously, you can’t sit still at a BH show. This is an awesome DIY concert, put on monthly by local artists themselves. Go hang in their living room, crack one open, and neck on the couch. It’s gonna be rad.

The Next Day (Valentine’s Day- Sunday 02/14):
Valentine’s Concert with The Heartstring Hunters, Ben Rabb, & Shanna Hoar at The Laughing Goat in Boulder 8PM-Close
New York folk artist Ben Rabb will be opening up this romantic evening over your heart-art latte as he ends his most recent tour, with special appearance by Shanna Hoar. Then Boulder acoustic indie-folk group The Heartstring Hunters will swoon you into the night at The Laughing Goat. Treat yoself.

Big thanks to all of those who bought tickets to the Homevibe Presents show with Ryan Montbleau at The Riverside this Sunday! The show sold out weeks in advance and we sponsored some press for the event so we appreciate those who checked out our feature and are ready to wine and dine their Valentine with Homevibe!
Our recent partnership with Cafe Aion Music means we will also recap their upcoming weekend shows for the month of February in our Friday feature. This weekend’s lineup includes Ben Hanna and Whiskey Autumn; read more about both acts here. As you might have noticed, each of these artists actually play Friday and Saturday shows in Boulder this weekend, so feel free to fall in love with one and stalk them at both of their performances.
PS: This week, our Sunday partnership with Green Light Radio and Streetside Productions will feature a track by Boulder’s Whiskey Autumn! The three piece recently released their single “07.04.07” with an accompanying music video that you can watch here! They’ve got two shows this weekend -one at The No Name Friday & one at Cafe Aion Saturday- so let them croon you and your honey live. Tune in Sunday to any of the Colorado Community Network Radio Stations here (95.3 or 95.5 Boulder) or stream Green Light to listen to WA’s “07.04.07” on Valentine’s Day!
See you lovers.
