This weekend our fair city will be playing house guest to thousands of beer snobs, it's also hosting it's fair share of awesome music. If you are not consuming copious amounts of beer, we suggest hitting up these shows, hell do both!
Friday: Red Bull Sound Select Denver: Viet Cong, Spells, and Eros and Eschaton curated by The UMS | The Marquis Theatre
Our good friends at The UMS are once again curating a kick ass lineup for Red Bull Sound Select and this one is sure to be a thing of beauty. Headlining the show our one of our favorite acts we caught at SXSW Viet Cong (name change pending), also on the bill are local faves Spells and Eros and Eschaton. You must RSVP to this and for a mere $3 you can enjoy a night full of amazing bands.
Friday: A Place To Bury Strangers with Grooms, Emerald Siam, and Hands of Midnight | Larimer Lounge
If you want loud, make sure you make your way down to Larimer Lounge for a Place To Bury Strangers, last time we saw these guys they were climbing speaker stacks at The UMS a few years ago. They come fast, loud and we highly recommend getting yourself of good earplugs. Tickets are on sale and this is almost certain to sell out.
Saturday: Larimer Block Party | Larimer Street
Now as if you haven't noticed we are pretty big fans of local bands, in fact it's what makes the backbone of a large chunk of our coverage. The first annual Larimer Block Party is bringing in some of our favorites including three of our confirmed acts for Ultraween 5 (shameless plug). If you want to get a preview of whats the come on Halloween be sure to catch Crl Crrll, Sur Ellz and Jilly.FM. Aside from a killer lineup of local acts they didn't mess around and got some pretty awesome headliners including Del The Funky Homosapien, Joywave, Sango, and BADBADNOTGOOD. This one day festival is not to be missed and for a mere $15 bucks you will be able to catch an awesome day of music. Check out the schedule below.

Breck Brew and awesome music, makes for a great night.
