Your Mom’s House
In early 2017, Pearl’s co-owners Tucker Schwab and Austin Lane worked out a deal with Joe Dan Hite and James Bedwell, who had been booking acts at local venues through his Boogie Groove Entertainment company, to head up a new venue on the east side of the bar. It's dubbed Your Mom’s House: Bedwell and Hite want to make you feel right at home — you know, like at your mom’s house. The monthly schedule is packed with an assortment of acts.

Levitt Pavilion
One of the most exciting developments in Denver's music scene was the grand opening of Levitt Pavilion. The massive nonprofit outdoor music venue in Ruby Hill Park puts on dozens of free concerts, many performed by up-and-coming local acts. Levitt also hosts national touring bands — some for free and others for a standard ticket price. The project launched with city support and is a taste of what's to come in the Overland Park neighborhood, where Superfly has announced a music festival that will launch in 2018 and turn the otherwise sleepy neighborhood into a music hub.
