4 Places for Live Music in the Denver Area

There is nothing like a live concert to boost the mood - good music, excited people, and lots of dancing. Personally, I get pretty bored with going to the same places each weekend and I've found that switching up the venue every once and a while is a great way to get out of my comfort zone. Here are 4 places/events to enjoy live music in the Denver area!

  1. 1. Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox

    Located downtown Denver, Ophelia’s serves food, drinks, and a fun time. They are open for brunch Friday through Sunday and dinner all week long. Check out their calendar for upcoming events and shows all summer. The best part is that most events are open to all ages! Grab your friends for Motown Monday or the 70s Disco Party on June 8th. 

  2. 2. Black Box 

    According to the Black Box website, their venue is headquarters for Colorado’s underground music community. With events and parties happening every weekend, the Black Box is clearly the place to be if you want to get lost in the music. You should check out the 80s party on Friday, June 7th for a guaranteed fun time (only $10-$15 dollars).

  3. 3. The Ogden Theatre

    Known for hosting popular artists such as The Strumbellas, Empire of the Sun, and Maggie Rogers, the Ogden is a great place to buy affordable tickets for popular artists. The venue is always filled with energy and excitement. They are even doing their best to reduce their environmental impact by participating in AEG1EARTH, an environmentally sustainable program.

  4. 4. Juneteenth Music Festival 

    Are you looking for a fun-filled weekend stocked with good food, drinks, and live music? Juneteenth is the perfect event for you. With popular headliners Ashanti and Rio James, the event is going to be one to remember. There is a youth zone for kids, hundreds of vendors, an NBA 2K19 Tournament for all our gamers out there, and cabanas available to rent. Check out their website!

These are only just a few places to check out over the summertime, so I recommend doing some researching on your own to find other events to attend. Trying new things and switching up your schedule is a great way to learn more about yourself and meet new people! Have a fun (and safe) summer everyone! :)
