Tonight: Dawes at the hi-dive

You could say Dawes is a little folky, a little country, a little Americana. But the California quartet is also just stripped down cool, playing the autobiographical musings of Taylor Goldsmith -- founder, singer and principal songwriter for Dawes. Along with fellow West Coasters Moondoggies and The Romany Eye, Dawes brings its slow swagger to the hi-dive tonight.

This is a rather sluggish Monday for shows -- a definite sign of the season -- making Dawes an easy choice, but it shouldn't be just because of the lack of options. The band had a successful run on Daytrotter's Barnstormer tour (something Denver's own Nathaniel Rateliff also took part in this year) and the band also has a penchant for gorgeous, multi-part harmonies. This show is 18 and up, and tickets are $15. Doors open at 8 p.m., bands start at 9 p.m.
