Winter might be slow when it comes to tours and concerts stopping through town, but in Denver, the live music scene never really stops. Despite cold weather and the inevitable late season blizzard, there are still plenty of shows that are worth braving chilly temperatures for in February!
Whether you’re looking to check out a rising new artist like EARTHGANG, J.I. the Prince of NY or Dirty Honey, or if you just want to relive your early years with Dashboard Confessional or American Nightmare, there’s always a little something for everyone when it comes to Colorado concerts. Stay warm on Valentine’s Day with Silversun Pickups and Eliza & The Delusionals or end the month on a high note with Dillon Francis. Whatever you choose, these shows promise to be some of this month’s best!
2/3 – EARTHGANG @ Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom
While touring consistently over the past year, Dreamville artists EARTHGANG have garnered a cult-like following and are currently on a huge ascent. Last fall, they made stops in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins and thankfully have not made fans wait long to see their return to Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom. For a taste of what to expect at the upcoming show, check out their performance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon – they even received a standing ovation.
2/4 – J.I. the Prince of NY @ Lost Lake
J.I. The Prince of NY is an 18-year-old rapper from Brooklyn who is known for his melodic flow, infectious charisma, and powerfully honest lyrics. To end 2019, he released Hood Life Krisis Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 and now, he’s bringing his live show to the intimate Lost Lake.
2/8 – Courtney Barnett @ The Stanley Hotel
Singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Courtney Barnett is taking her live show to intimate, iconic and beautiful venues around the U.S. this winter, and nothing can get more iconic and unique than the historic Stanley Hotel in Estes Park. For the upcoming show, Barnett will perform alone on stage accompanied by nothing but her own guitar. The tour promises to deliver something special for fans with Barnett’s incredible songwriting and guitar-playing laid bare and up close, and in a venue like The Stanley, it’s something you won’t soon forget.
2/14 – Silversun Pickups @ The Ogden Theatre
Looking for the perfect Valentine’s Day show? Silversun Pickups and Eliza & the Delusionals are sure to warm your heart on February 14th. While Silversun Pickups are touring in support of their recently released album, Widows Weeds, Australian indie rockers Eliza & The Delusionals are celebrating the success of their latest single, “Just Exist” and gearing up to release their just-announced EP, A State Of Living In An Objective Reality.
2/16 – Pinegrove @ The Gothic Theatre
Pinegrove kicked off 2020 with the release of their new album, Marigold and are riding the well-earned waves of success with a headlining tour stopping through Denver at the Gothic Theatre.
2/17 – Dirty Honey @ The Bluebird Theater
Dirty Honey is one of the hottest new rock bands who continues to turn heads with their loaded-with-attitude, sexy, bluesy rock’n’roll. They’ll be bringing their larger than life stage presence to the intimate Bluebird Theater alongside British rock band The Amazons, who will be marking their first tour stateside with this run.
2/21 – Yacht Rock Revue @ Mission Ballroom
Yacht Rock Revue will be playing in Denver the same night that their album, HOT DADS in TIGHT JEANS – their first album of all original material – drops! Yacht Rock Revue are not your average tribute band, nor are they the average music story. They’re a touring phenomenon fulfilling the nation’s need for a subculture we didn’t know we needed, but can’t live without. Their dedicated fanbase (AKA “The Nation of Smooth”) is there for every show night in captains hats and boat shoes, whether it’s Charleston or Cincinnati, or anywhere in between.
2/22 – Dashboard Confessional @ The Ogden Theatre
Dashboard Confessional are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a special tour, making a stop in Denver at The Ogden Theatre. The band will be performing a mix of their landmark and beloved albums, The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most (2001) and A Mark, a Mission, a Brand, a Scar (2003) for a show that will certainly rival even the best emo nites. Prior to kicking off their tour, Dashboard Confessional is releasing a compilation album of their greatest hits, The Bests Ones of the Best Ones.
2/25 – American Nightmare @ The Bluebird Theater
It has been 20 years since hardcore punk collective American Nightmare played their first gig, and they’re preparing to commemorate their first-ever live performance with a 20th-anniversary tour and the re-release of their debut compilation album, Year One, originally released in 2001. The upcoming show at The Bluebird Theater promises to be intimate, high energy and once in a lifetime. And with Ceremony opening, it’s a perfect show from start to finish.
2/28 – Dillon Francis @ Mission Ballroom
Dillon Francis is calling on fans to “celebrate Leap Year” with him when he plays at the Mission Ballroom in Denver on Friday February 28th. With his over the top live performances, his upcoming show in the stunning new venue promises to be the perfect way to end the month.
