Front Range - Recommended shows, 3/19

Whether you like darkness or light, there are some fine musical choices this week.

19 March - Bluebird Theater, Denver CO
White Rabbits

I really enjoyed White Rabbits' last album, It's Frightening. The primitive feel and the subtle power of their sound was compelling. I haven't had a chance to listen to their latest, Milk Famous, but it's on my list. Their dark, atavistic sound should translate into a good show.

20 March - Aggie Theatre, Ft. Collins CO
21 March - Bluebird Theater, Denver CO
22 March - Fox Theatre, Boulder CO
Donavon Frankenreiter

Indie rock icon Donavon Frankenreiter has a full set of shows across the Front Range this week. His lazy summer vibe would have fit last week's weather better, but his cheery indie pop will certainly give us a touch of brightness.

22 March - Larimer Lounge, Denver CO
Sleepy Sun

Last time I saw Sleepy Sun, they blenderized retro rock, acid rock, and prog into a unique, intense mix. Their new album, Spine Hits, is coming out next month (review soon!). Singer Rachel Fannan has left the band, breaking up the male/female dynamic, but it's still a fine follow up to their earlier work. This should be a great show.

24 March - Hi-Dive, Denver CO
Delicate Steve

Delicate Steve is returning to Colorado. This time, as a headliner, he should have a full length set to showcase his layered, experimental guitar sound. Even though his music is largely instrumental, he's an engaging performer. The Hi-Dive will be reverberating with chaos and beauty.
