Yonder Mountain String Band
While many of you might be heading (or headed) out of town for the holidays, those of you who decided to stick around will be treated to a variety pack of local and national talent, with Speedwolf delivering some up-tempo trash at the hi-dive, Men In Burka dropping yet another new EP at the Larimer Lounge, The Wailers bringing a post-64 set to Boulder's Fox Theatre, Laura Goldhamer at the Oriental Theater and local jam favorites.

5. SPEEDWOLF @ HI-DIVE | 12/28/12

One of Denver's most treasured thrash-punk bands, Speedwolf, brings a bone-rattling energy and cohesive instrumentation that invariably leave the group's audiences a sweaty mess of adrenaline and whip-lashed glory. The band's 2009 release, Bark At The Poon, is an unvarnished romp of classic madness in the vein of Motorhead or Danzig, followed-up brilliantly in 2011 with Ride With Death.
