Tickets on sale: Aziz Ansari, Russian Circles and more

Here are the tickets on sale this weekend — Aziz Ansari, Russian Circles and more.

Aziz Ansari — Pikes Peak Center, $38.50

Aziz Ansari has gotten a lot of comedy mileage out of bling-crazy rappers and celebrities, but between signing a $3.5 million book deal and buying a $2.7 million home in Los Angeles over the last few months, Ansari is starting to look more like the Hollywood types he mocks. The “Parks and Recreation” co-star plays Colorado Springs’ Pikes Peak Center on Jan. 29. Tickets are on sale. ($38.50, pikespeakcenter.com)

T.J. Miller — Gothic Theatre, $20.50-$23

Denver native and Chicago-bred comedian T.J. Miller (“Cloverfield,” “How to Train Your Dragon”) has a habit of showing up announced at local showcases like the Grawlix during the holidays, but Miller will get his own headlining gig when he returns to the Gothic Theatre on Feb. 27. Tickets are on sale. ($20.50-$23, axs.com)

Russian Circles — Gothic Theatre, $10

Chicago’s proud history of post-rock — or the sort of experimental, instrumental music that typified the city’s indie scene in the 1990s and early 2000s — is largely a thing of the past. But the pummeling trio of Russian Circles successfully invokes that period with songs that are both heavy on dynamic shifts and light on filler. Tickets for the band’s March 1 show at the Gothic Theatre with KEN Mode and Inter Arma are on sale. ($10, axs.com)

Banff Film Festival — Boulder Theater, $15

Canada’s Banff Centre will bring its annual Film Festival World Tour back to the Boulder Theater Feb. 25-26, featuring films that run the gamut of mountain-friendly subjects — think environmental, action and adventure films, with an emphasis on documentaries. Tickets are on sale. ($15, bouldertheater.com)

Dark Star Orchestra — Boulder Theater, $25-$27.50

Also at the Boulder Theater: Dark Star Orchestra, the Grateful Dead cover band with a fan base nearly as devoted as Jerry Garcia and company, will return to the Front Range with its meticulous re-creations of classic Dead sets. The band plays a March 28-29 run in Boulder, with tickets on sale now. ($25-$27.50, bouldertheater.com)

“The Sing-Off” — Ogden Theatre, $29.50-$75

NBC’s a cappella competition “The Sing-Off” was bound to spawn a live tour if it stuck around long enough. Unlike some “American Idol”-style stage shows, however, the pleasures of live a cappella music can be far more captivating than on television. Tickets for the tour’s March 23 stop at the Ogden Theatre are on sale. ($29.50 general admission; $75 for balcony seating, axs.com)
