Not Quite Christmas Caroling, But Just As Good

"Mainstream, local and upcoming artists/bands have booked various shows throughout the month."

We hear “December” and we often think, Christmas. Yet, December is a month filled with many other things outside of the holiday season. And here in Denver, despite the snow… music rings through the season, continues filling the venues and keeps us nodding our heads and downloading new songs from I-Tunes.  This December is no different. Mainstream, local and upcoming artists/bands have booked various shows throughout the month. Regardless of your genre choice, December delivers a mix to Denver.

Kid Rock rolls in likely covering his Born Free Album, Little Texas brings the toe tapping, 2 stepping, cowboy hat wearing party to the Grizzly Rose, Matisyahu comes bearing a little reggae alternative rock, the B-52s take us back a bit and capture some old school tunes, Social Distortion transports the punk rock music to the Ogden, and Macklemore with Ryan Lewis cover the rap/hip-hop genre with lyrical grace. Believe me, this is a minor list of upcoming shows and you can always check out your favorite venue for December’s playlist, so to speak. Ticketmaster also provides a means to simply scope out upcoming shows throughout the city.

We have plenty to do here in Denver, but grabbing a show, having a cocktail, and hearing some great music never gets old. Music has a tendency to move us…so move off your couches, out of the warmth of your home and enjoy a little December in Denver.

Here are a few links to hopefully get you in the mood.
