The Buffalo Rose
1119 Washington Ave.
Golden, CO  80401
Golden, Colorado, right at the foot of the Rockies, between Lookout Mountain and the two Table Mountains, is an unlikely venue for Metro Denver’s major annual sleaze/hair-metal festival, but life is full of surprises. That the fest takes place at the Buffalo Rose, an unassuming old honky-tonk built in 1859 to host, among other things, church services and dances, only serves to dial up the oddity factor.

In fact, local niche concert bookers and promotors Wolfpack Productions put shows on at the Buffalo Rose throughout the year. It’s become a gloriously strange little sanctuary for those in the region who are still drawn to big 1980s rock-and-roll anthems and all of the spandex fantasy that comes with them. In many ways, the Buffalo Rose couldn’t be farther from the Sunset Strip, but once inside when a band such as Every Mother’s Nightmare, Jetboy or Faster Pussycat is performing, you could be at the Roxy or the Whisky in ’86.
