Suburban Home's 16th Anniversary, STS9, triple EP release at hi-dive and more this weekend
Whether you're a local scene junkie or strangely attracted to artists without vowels, there's no shortage of things to do over the next two days. Here's what's good this weekend:
A house is just not a Home without music
On Friday at 3 Kings Tavern Virgil Dickerson's Suburban Home Records kicks off its weekend long celebration of its 16th anniversary with two days of music. Across the street at the hi-dive, a triple EP release show features Spires, b.sous and The Don'ts & Be Carefuls, while Bare Bones celebrates the release of its new platter at the Larimer Lounge. Up at Red Rocks, STS9 kicks off its two-night run.
Finally, on Sunday, Local Flavor takes place at the Lowenstein Cultureplex at Colfax and Elizabeth, with local bands and more, and then later that night, DMX returns to Denver (well, Englewood, rather) for a show is at the Gothic. Click through for a full rundown.
FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9
And of course, if you're looking for a one-stop shop for all your weekend concert needs, local heroes Suburban Home Records are more than willing to oblige with their 16th Anniversary Party, happening both Friday and Saturday night. The lineup is as follows: Two Cow Garage (playing both nights), Lenny and the Piss Poor Boys, Micah Schnabel (of Two Cow Garage), Michael Dean Damron (of I Can Lick Any Sonofabitch In the House), Joey Briggs, Lizzie Huffman, Have Gun Will Travel and Shane Sweeney (of Two Cow Garage). The event goes through both days at 3 Kings Tavern (60 S. Broadway). Tickets are $15 per day.
Tonight The Don'ts and Be Carefuls, B. Sous and Spires all celebrate the release of their individual EPs at the hi-dive (7 S. Broadway). The show is 18+, doors are at 8:00 p.m. and the show starts at 9:00 p.m. Tickets are $7.
At the Larimer Lounge (2721 Larimer Street) this evening, meanwhile, Bare Bones is celebrating the release of its brand new self-titled debut EP with Land Lines. Show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10-12.
Boasting an undercard that's almost as impressive as the headliner, tonight and tomorrow night's Sound Tribe Sector 9 shows are sure to be a party and a half. Tonight's gig features Snoop Dog and Up Until Now, while tomorrow night's show features LTJ Bukem. Showtime is at 7:30 p.m. and tickets range from $45-$75.
