Owing to the holiday weekend (hope you had a great 4th of July), I’m taking it a bit easy this week regarding the weekly Denver live music picks. However, there are a couple of established local bands saying good-bye this weekend with farewell shows that I didn’t want to miss mentioning, since it’s the last chance for fans to see them for awhile.
SATURDAY, JULY 6–ACHILLE LAURO @ THE WALNUT ROOM
Local indie-rock act Achille Lauro is playing a farewell show Saturday at The Walnut Room, 3133 Walnut St. in Denver. Opening acts include The Morning Clouds, Vitamins and Land Lines. Tickets are $15 each, available from The Walnut Room. Service charge may apply. Doors at 7:00 PM. Ages 21+.
SATURDAY, JULY 6–YERKISH @ THE ORIENTAL THEATER
Local prog-rockers Yerkish will be playing their final show this Saturday at The Oriental Theater, 4335 W. 44th Ave. in Denver, as part of the Module Overload Studios showcase. Other performing acts include The Bronze, Torch the Wagon, The Lollygags and Cutthroat Drifters. Tickets are $6 each, available through The Oriental Theater. Service charges may apply. Showcase start time is at 3:00 PM. This is an all-ages event.
Thanks to both of these bands for all you have contributed to the Denver music scene. You will be missed!
Have a great weekend.
