fun., Red Rocks Amphitheatre — On sale Saturday
Despite having released its first album in 2009, Queen-like pop act fun. hit it big at the Grammys on Sunday with two awards for its sophomore release “Some Nights,” including best new artist and song of the year.

Band of Horses, Ogden Theatre — On sale Saturday
On Tuesday, Seattle’s Band of Horses announced onits Facebook page that it would be returning to Colorado’s Ogden Theatre this year. The venue is a bit smaller than the indie folk band is used to, having played Red Rocks Amphitheatre a few times as an opener — most recently in 2012. Band of Horses will play the Ogden on April 8, and tickets for the show go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. ($36.50, ogdentheatre.net)
Foals, Ogden Theatre — On sale Saturday
This week, indie math-rock group Foals released its third album, “Holy Fire.” Since the British band debuted in 2008 with “Antidotes,” it has faced many mixed reviews, which may or may not have led to a smoothing of its sound for more of a pop feel. On June 4, Foals will return to Denver in support of this new release — at the Ogden Theatre with Blondfire. Tickets go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. ($22, ogdentheatre.net)
