The ten best concerts in Denver this weekend
1. NEUROSIS @ SUMMMIT MUSIC HALL | SAT, 2/16/13
One of the few heavy bands with a genre-transcending appeal, Oakland's Neurosis forged an impressive sonic evolution across several decades. Starting out as a bit of a political crust/hardcore band in 1985, by the time of its 1992 album, the epochal Souls at Zero, Neurosis was on the path to creating the urgent, distorted psychedelic metal that completely integrated everything from ambient music and the organic industrial side of Einstürzende Neubauten to Swans and neofolk into its palette; in 2003, in fact, the band collaborated with former Swans singer Jarboe for a most beautifully unsettling record. Last year, Neurosis released Honor Found in Decay, continuing its trilogy of albums exploring the atmospheric potentialities of a glacial dynamic build. Neurosis rarely plays Denver. Don't sleep on this opportunity.
