A guide to Colorado 4/20 concerts: Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Method Man and moreBy Matt Miller | April 18th, 2013 | No Comments »
The unofficial celebration of weed culture is ‚ÄĒ at least in the minds of Colorado voters ‚ÄĒ official this year. The first legal 4/20 is a coming out of sorts for venues, musicians and fans of a certain age all over the state who can now comfortably embrace and consume marijuana in all its various forms.
With the stigma of legality out of the way, the weekend of April 20 has lit up with concerts across the state in ways never before seen. These shows celebrate the surprisingly diverse weed subculture that goes far beyond the stereotypes normally associated with pot.
Here‚Äôs our guide to Colorado 4/20 concerts, which encompasses hip-hop, jam bands, hard rock, electronic dance music and more. Note that all shows take place on Saturday, the big day itself.
10. (Hed) P.E., No 1 Left Standing: Summit Music Hall, $13-$15
This one‚Äôs for the more aggressive of those celebrating weed culture on Saturday. Not all 4/20-themed concerts are about chilling out to relaxed jam bands. (Hed) P.E. is a California hardcore band known for songs such as ‚ÄúRenegade‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúNo Rest for the Wicked,‚ÄĚ and some of their work even features the Kottonmouth Kings.
