Summer is coming, which means concert season is upon us. If you’re anything like me, you’re a hard working twenty-something that cannot justify buying all the concert tickets you dream to, but still want to reach your social butterfly potential. I’m here to tell you about some free or cheap, reoccurring, music-focused events so you can get into summer-mode, have a few cheap thrills, and save some dough for when you decide to drop the ball and buy a $65 Red Rocks ticket anyway.
The Lituation @ Hi Dive, Milk Bar, Meadowlark
Weird Touch @ Syntax Physic Opera and other venues
NSO ‘No Special Occasion’ @ The 715
Live Jazz Mondays @ The Meadowlark
A.M. Rolling Sundays @ Hudson Hill
Junk Drawer @ Trade Denver
Sunday Funday @ Ace Eat Serve
These are some of my favorite events in our lively city, but by no means is this all that’s going on. All of your favorite dive bars have live music on one day or another, and thankfully we live in the digital age, where most those places update their happenings on Instagram or Facebook.
Some other venues to check out: Your Mom’s House, Ophelia’s, Lost Lake, Hi Dive, Sputnik, Mutiny Cafe, The White Whale Room, Rhinoceropolis, Lion’s Lair.
Also, pro tip, follow your favorite artists, venues, and publications (DUH, ULTRA5280) on social media because more often than not there’s a contest running, offering you MORE FREE STUFF. Who doesn’t love that? So Denver, what are we doing tonight?
