Best Denver shows this week: Wavves, Paper Bird, Lord Huron and moreBy Matt Miller | March 22nd, 2013 | No Comments »
Still recovering from SXSW, we’re keeping the best shows of the week as light and folky as we possibly can. That is until we’re feeling up for loud noises again to get messed up by Wavves at the Larimer Lounge on Wednesday. Before that, though, it’s all acoustic guitars and music that will keep our battered ears and bodies happy. Here are the best Denver shows this week (March 22-28). Reverb will be there, and as always you can chat with us about it on Twitter @RVRB or check out our pictures from the shows on our Instagram at Heyreverb.
4) Paper Bird, Friday, Oriental Theater, $15
The New York Times got it right last month when it mentioned Denver as “a city that prizes the intricate folk-pop of Nathaniel Rateliff and Paper Bird.” At Paper Bird’s CD release party at the Ogden Theater on Friday, we can embrace Colorado’s organic and folky persona. And why shouldn’t we have pride in the fact that banjo and harmonies and vests have been part of the Colorado music scene before Mumford & Sons picked up a mandolin?
