The Naked and Famous, Oct. 18 You know you have belted it out in your car when “Girls like You” comes on the radio. Get Friday you can sing your lungs out with them live. The Fillmore Auditorium, Denver www.fillmoreauditorium.org

Portugal. The Man, Oct. 19

The Book of Mormon, Opens Oct. 22 (Thru Nov. 24) Satire has never been more hilarious (or offensive, if you’re a Latter Day Saint). Written by the creator of South Park and composed by the adult puppet musical Avenue Q—that’s all you need to know when it comes to comedic expectations. Buell Theatre, Denver www.denvercenter.org

Psychedelic band Portugal. The Man has released an album for every year it’s been active. With so many hit singles that came from those LPs, it’s not wonder that this psychedlic rock and pop band performed once St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. Ogden Theatre, Denver www.ogdentheatre.com

The Neighbourhood, Oct. 25

Two Door Cinema Club, Oct. 21

13th Annual Halloween Hootenanny, Oct. 26

This band might be Irish but it certainly doesn’t mean that it’s indie rock sound reflects the country. Instead, enjoy these tunes in good ol’ Denver! Ogden Theatre, Denver www.ogdentheatre.com

68 CULTURE • OCTOBER 2013

This up and coming band just barely released it’s first LP early this year and it’s quickly becoming one of the “cool” bands. Although it’s already gotten publicity at SXSW and a brief tour with Imagine Dragons, see them before they explode onto the music scene! Ogden Theatre, Denver www.ogdentheatre.com

Sadly, there’s no legitimate reason for adults to trick-or-treat (because it’s creepy). Instead, celebrate Halloween where you’re welcome—at the Hootenany (costumes are mandatory). The Bluebird Theater, Denver www.bluebirdtheater.net
