Swans

Bluebird Theater : 8:00 p.m. September 2

Without the spirit of experimentation and uncompromising artistic vision that informs Swans, much of the industrial and post-rock that has come along since 1982 would sound very different. The band moved from tortured, aggressive and unsettling songs to more nuanced sounds in 1986, when Jarboe... More >>

Martin Sexton

Denver Botanic Gardens : 7:00 p.m. September 3

Martin Sexton is a singer's singer.

Vivienne Vavoom"s Burlesque As It Was

Syntax Physic Opera : 9:00 p.m. September 6

Vivienne VaVoom (aka Michelle Baldwin) has made a brand out of the “Burlesque As It Was” concept. Indeed, if burlesque has become a runaway train of popularity in recent years, VaVoom was the woman who drove that locomotive into Denver. And after earning accolades for her old-timey... More >>

Arctic Monkeys

Red Rocks Amphitheatre : 8:00 p.m. September 4

The gradual shift in musical sensibility for Arctic Monkeys can be traced through the guys' aesthetic: They wear sunglasses a lot now. They wear them in music videos and on stage, and sometimes when it's not really sunny enough to merit protecting their corneas. As their urban grit has widened... More >>

The Breeders

Summit Music Hall : 8:00 p.m. September 5

Call it the Great Rock ‘n’ Roll Swindle that never quite was: Post-Pixies art-rock wrecking crew strikes cultural gold on second try then unravels into relative, willful obscurity. Last year, the original Breeders' lineup anniversary toured the 1993 alt-touchstone Last Splash ,... More >>

Randy Rogers Band

Boulder Theater : 8:00 p.m. September 5

In the past decade, the Randy Rogers Band has rocketed from the smallest stages in Texas to headlining the biggest festivals and causing the biggest lines at Will Call than pretty much any other band currently performing under the massive Texas Country umbrella.

Boulder Country

St. Vincent

Denver Botanic Gardens : 7:00 p.m. September 6

When Annie Clark of St. Vincent took the stage with the rest of her band a few months ago, it was with the same kind of choreographed ritual that informed the rest of the performance. Her hair these days seems to belong to a visitor from either outer space or the future, as are her clothes and... More >>

Central Denver Rock

The Aquabats

Gothic Theatre : 8:00 p.m. September 6

The Aquabats are geeks who are so geeky they're cool -- and not poser-geek cool, either. These guys don't just wear horn-rimmed glasses and thrift-store chic; they also dress as various villain factions from the original Batman television show. (Dare ya to do that at the bars this weekend.) But... More >>

Porter Robinson

Fillmore Auditorium : 8:00 p.m. September 6

Porter Robinson started making electronic music at the age of thirteen using Sony ACID Pro, but he didn't perform his music live in front of an audience until a handful of years later.

Reverend Horton Heat

Ogden Theatre : 9:00 p.m. September 6

Just in case anyone forgot how long the Reverend Horton Heat has been around, he reminded everyone during the first 45 minutes of his last show the Ogden Theatre two years ago by playing a song from each of his albums in chronological order, from 1991's Sub Pop debut, Smoke 'em if You Got 'em,...

Fucked Up

Bluebird Theater : 8:00 p.m. September 7

Fucked Up's newest album, Glass Boys, is a long way from the Wipers/Jawbreaker alien-core they've done before. Vocalist Damien Abraham still has that wrecked, Schwarzenbach-via-'82-Rollins roar of a voice — but now it's chopping through some quintessential Amerindie guitar rock à... More >>

Central Denver Rock

Linkin Park

Fiddler's Green Amphitheater : 6:30 p.m. September 8

Linkin Park, once a cautionary tale on how rap rock could go wrong, reinvented itself with 2010's A Thousand Suns. The reinvention garnered Radiohead and Pink Floyd comparisons, and, maybe even more amazingly, that's what the guys were going for. Whether it qualifies as daring to mine either... More >>

Drake and Lil Wayne

Red Rocks Amphitheatre : 7:00 p.m. September 10

While both Drake and Lil Wayne get along famously, rap fans have contested who of the two is better for a number of years now, and the playful "VS" in the title of the show adds a further element of rivalry to the debate. The sheer amount of street team work, parodying the logo for fighting... More >>

The Growlers

Hi-dive : September 5; September 6

The Growlers aren't your average band. Sure, that statement might be sort of cliche, but take the time to listen to these guys and you'll be convinced they're far from traditional.

Zac Brown Band

Fiddler's Green Amphitheater : 7:00 p.m. September 5; September 6

Compared to airbrushed, frosted-bang pretty boys like the ones in Rascal Flatts, Atlanta's Zac Brown Band looks like it came straight to Nashville from a bare-knuckled dustup with the Kentucky Headhunters. However, the strand of Southern rock that Brown and company are steeped in most is the... More >>

We're BigWheel Electrosoul," DJ Check One announces after the band's first song before adding, "and we're here every Tuesday at Appaloosa."
