Best Denver shows this week: FoCoMX, Alt-J and moreBy Matt Miller | April 19th, 2013 | No Comments »
You don’t have to be a pot connoisseur (stoner has such a negative connotation) or a vinyl snob to enjoy music this week. Besides 4/20 concerts and Record Store Day celebrations there’s quite a bit more live music to be seen. If you’re looking for something along those lines, we’ve got you covered and you can check out our 4/20 concert guide and our Record Store Day guide. Since that’s all taken care of, our best Denver shows this week focus on what’s going outside of weed and records — and there’s some good stuff.
5) Marnie Stern — Sunday, Moe’s Original Barbecue, $12-$15
Marnie Stern‘s obsessive and excessive mastery of her craft (guitar) can be summed up in her decision to pull a song title from a 1,000 + page satirical sci-fi novel by David Foster Wallace. Her unusual guitar tapping style is something to behold and as such can be overwhelming to take in. But to watch her execute such technical prowess (while singing) is not an opportunity to pass up. If it does prove to be too much for you, the good news is you’re at Moe’s and you can take a break with some great barbecue and bowling.
