Winter is usually when shows slow down. It’s colder, bands aren’t touring, and sometimes it just seems more comfortable to stay in the house where it’s warm. Though it’s been slower with live concerts, as we inch closer to the spring season we’re starting to see more live music pop up. There are some great shows coming to town this weekend, spanning genres from hip-hop to indie rock, country, math rock, metal and more.
Thursday is often the pregame for the weekend. It’s not quite Friday, but we all need to get out. This Thursday, the 26th, is certainly no exception. Greeley’s Silver & Gold will be bringing their energetic alt-rock to Vultures along with indie rock from Dryerline and Tiny Tomboy. It’s sure to be a fun night out that’s relaxing at the same time.
As Friday night approaches, there’s more going on at Vultures, which will be hosting a killer math rock show with Catbamboo, Get The Axe and the return of SemiFiction. Catbamboo is a progressive, instrumental math rock band from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, with a sound that has lots of melody, guitar tapping, intricacy and precision. They’re embarking on a 3½-week tour and we are lucky to be one of their stops! Next door at The Black Sheep, catch a local metal show with Ovira, Violence in Violet, Biting Bullets and Falter Never Fail. If you’re in the mood for something a little different, head down to Fritzy’s for a special Stranger Things night with DJ Tony Garcia. He incorporates music, video and lights, all resulting in a special, fun time.
On Saturday, Jan. 28, head to The Black Sheep for The LoFi Sessions, an evening of lo-fi hip-hop and beats from J.O., T-Swerk, Makeshft and more. There will be more hip-hop upstairs at Lulu’s with Flood the Block, featuring rapper City Hollow and special guests. Or head downstairs at Lulu’s for Wake Up and Live, a special celebration of reggae legend Bob Marley. If you feel like getting up and dancing the night away, then Stargazers is the place to be. SOAPDISH will be playing their upbeat, high-energy dance music covering songs from the ’80s to the present.
Sunday night is here, but the weekend isn’t over yet! You can still check out an indie hip-hop show at Vultures featuring Six O’Clock, Jus-1 & DJ Konz, Clydesdale Ent., Def One and Endy P. And if you’re still looking for ways to wind down your weekend, might I suggest going to Lulu’s, where they’ll be hosting an evening of Americana/country with touring artist John R. Miller.
That’s what’s going on in Colorado Springs this week! We’ll see you next week for more live music, and if you would like us to write about anything you have coming up, contact me at email@example.com.
