Front Range recommended shows - 4/22

Time keeps on slipping, into the future. But at least there's always music!

25 April (Hodi's Half Note, Ft. Collins CO)
26 April (Cervantes Other Side, Denver CO)
That 1 Guy
Anybody who invents their own instrument to become a one man band deserves at least a little attention, if only as a sideshow act. But forget every one man band you've ever seen. That 1 Guy is technically amazing and his funky, experimental jams will get you dancing, too. If you haven't seen him yet, I feel bad for you. Two chances to see him this pass through Colorado offer a chance of redemption. As a bonus, he promises that this tour will feature some new tricks.

26 April (Hi-Dive, Denver CO)
The Men

The Men, from Brooklyn are bringing their psychedelic garage rock to Denver. I really enjoyed last year's Open Your Heart because of its strong pacing and the band's ability to draw out long-form trippy exploration and rebound with tight, focused punk energy on the next track. Bring some hearing protection and enjoy a cathartic evening with the Men.

25 April (Boulder Theater, Boulder CO)
26 April (Boulder Theater, Boulder CO)
27 April (Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Morrison CO)
Disco Biscuits
The Disco Biscuits are throwing an early-season show at Red Rocks, where they'll be joined by Spongle for the "Feed the Rocks" benefit show. The idea is to raise money for Denver Parks and Rec. They offered a 3-day package deal with tickets to pre-Rocks shows at the Boulder Theatre, but you can also just catch the big show on Saturday. The Disco Biscuits always have a stunning show and the crowd should be almost as entertaining.
