10 Denver Shows You Can't Miss in August
School might be starting soon and most of this year’s festivals have come and gone, but that doesn’t mean that the summer concert season is winding down. Throughout the month of August, there are countless of must-see shows hitting some of Denver’s most intimate venues, from The Marquis Theater to Summit’s Moon Room and even Globe Hall and Larimer Lounge. Also coming this month is the grand opening of Denver’s new venue, Mission Ballroom, which will host some incredible shows, including the grand opening, featuring The Lumineers and later this month, Phantogram.
Take a look at some of our most anticipated shows below and let us know who you’re excited too see in the comments!
8/7 - The Lumineers @ Mission Ballroom
Everyone got a sneak peek of the new Mission Ballroom last week when Chevy Metal played their soft opening, but the grand opening of the stunning new venue will be this month with none other than The Lumineers. It’s the perfect kick-off for what promises to be one of Denver’s best new venues.
8/9 - Oh, Sleeper @ The Marquis Theater
Oh, Sleeper will be bringing their headlining tour to The Marquis Theater early this month, and the lineup is stacked, including Famous Last Words, Convictions, Empty, Under Auburn Skies and Bodies We’ve Buried. The upcoming show, which promises to be high energy from start to finish, is in support of the band’s recently released fourth full-length album Bloodied/Unbowed, which was released last month.
8/9 - Dean Lewis @ The Gothic Theatre
Multi-platinum selling artist Dean Lewis is returning to the US on a 21-city tour this summer and fall, with a headlining show coming up at The Gothic Theatre following his performance at Lollapalooza. With a soulful voice and incredibly poetic and emotional lyrics, Dean Lewis is not only a show that you’re going to want to see, but an artist to keep an eye on this year.
8/10 - Night Riots @ Moon Room
Alt-rock band, Night Riots just celebrated the release of their new album, New State Of Mind last month and now, the band is bringing their energetic live show to the intimate Moon Room at Summit. The upcoming show is one of only 7 U.S. tour dates before the band heads to the UK to perform at the legendary Reading & Leeds Festivals this month.
8/11 - Kindo @ Larimer Lounge
Kindo (FKA The Reign Of Kindo) just embarked on their headlining tour and will be bringing their spectacular live performance to Larimer Lounge on August 11th. The band has become prolific in recent days; writing and producing a brand new song every month since late 2016, likely making for a long and exciting setlist.
8/15 - Spencer Sutherland @ Globe Hall
Soulful pop singer-songwriter, Spencer Sutherland, will be headlining Globe Hall this month. This spring, he released his debut EP, NONE of this has been about you, an introspective journey that spotlights his signature tone and falsetto, reminiscent of the 60s with stripped-down 80s-inspired production. This show promises to be one of a kind!
8/17 - Adiel Mitchell @ Moon Room
Denver singer/songwriter, dancer, and producer Adiel Mitchell puts on an incredible show, and his upcoming performance at the Moon Room is one you don’t want to miss. The upcoming show follows his recent performance at UMS and the release of his latest single, “Sunset Bay Cafe”.
8/18 - Phantogram @ Mission Ballroom
While just about every single show at Mission Ballroom this month promises to be incredible, Phantogram is an absolute must-see. The upcoming show is in support of “Into Happiness,” Phantogram’s first new song in three years, since their 2016 chart-topping and career-defining album, Three. Come celebrate this new chapter for the band at an exciting new venue!
8/20 - Vic Mensa & Jesse @ The Gothic Theatre
At the age of 22, Vic Mensa has already established himself as an integral part of Chicago culture, first co-founding the SAVEMONEY collective and releasing two mixtapes in two years and now as a solo artist signed with the Roc Nation family. His upcoming co-headlining show with Jesse (of The Neighbourhood) and Hearts opening promises to be incredible from start to finish.
8/30 - Redlands @ The Marquis Theater
Another fantastic local show, Redlands’ upcoming performance at The Marquis will be filled with both old and new songs and is complete with a stacked lineup. With Nightlove, HoldFast. and Elektric Animals opening, this one will be the perfect way to end the month!
