Earlier this fall, we reported the first eight Red Rocks concerts to be announced in 2019. Ten more have been added to the calendar, and much like the first batch, there are plenty of jam bands, indie rockers, electronic acts and a couple of country artists thrown in. Hip-hop? Nope. Metal? Nope. Weird Al and the Colorado Symphony? Well, yeah…

Here are the most recent concerts scheduled at Red Rocks for 2019.


Interpol

May 1

May will open up with a night of indie rock headlined by Interpol, with support from Sunflower Beam, which performed at last year’s Westword Music Showcase, and Car Seat Headrest, fresh off a year of touring in support of its excellent album of older songs, Twin Fantasy (Mirror to Mirror). Interpol, part of the rock resurgence at the beginning of the 21st century, released Marauder in August.


Twiddle
/ Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and the Kitchen Dwellers
May 2

Twiddle’s music takes inspiration from indie rock, folk, reggae and bluegrass, but in the live setting, the bandmembers have sealed their reputation as deft improvisers. They'll be joined by their fellow rockers in Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and Kitchen Dwellers, providing the perfect opportunity for jam-band fans to light up, lay back, or dance to the twists and turns of the music.


Vulfpeck
with Khruangbin and Cory Henry
May 9

The jam-a-thon continues with funk band Vulfpeck, which returns to Red Rocks to offer up the breezy music that dazzled fans at the venue back in April. The group spent the better part of the past two years touring in support of 2017's Mr Finish Line. Vulfpeck will be joined on the Rocks by rising acts Khruangbin and Cory Henry.
