Afro-soul ex­cel­lence, plus a fresh “Mur­der”

The Denver Post - - LIFE&CULTURE - Gothic Paramount Damian “Jr. Gong” Mar­ley,

Hol­i­day weeks tend to see fewer big-name con­cert an­nounce­ments, in part be­cause tick­et­buy­ers are harder to reach. But a hand­ful of no­table shows still snuck onto the cal­en­dar over the last few days, mostly courtesy of Den­ver mega-pro­moter AEG Presents: In­stru­men­tal pow­er­house The Bu­dos Band, whose siz­zling Afro-soul fits neatly with its throw­back-ori­ented Dap­tones Records la­bel­mates, re­turns to Den­ver for a 16-and-up con­cert at the Theatre on Aug. 27, with opener Hanni El Khatib. Tick­ets are on sale at 10 a.m. July 7. ($20.75-$27, axs.com) In ad­di­tion to its pre­vi­ously an­nounced show at the

Theatre on Aug. 25, which caps the first day of Den­ver’s High Plains Com­edy Fes­ti­val, the “My Fa­vorite Mur­der Live” show plans to play the Boul­der Theater on Aug. 26 — also as part of the fifth an­nual High Plains fest. Un­der­ap­pre­ci­ated com­edy ge­nius Karen Kil­gar­iff (“Mr. Show,” “Ellen”) and co-host Ge­or­gia Hard­stark will guide you through death’s door. Tick­ets went on sale last week. ($40, boul­derthe­ater.com) Krewella, the Chicago-area sis­ter duo of Ja­han and Yas­mine Yousaf, make glossy, elec­tronic dance mu­sic that in­creas­ingly strad­dles the main­stream pop world thanks to its ris­ing and fes­ti­val-aided pro­file. As part of its lat­est tour, the act head­lines the Og­den Theatre on Oct. 10, with tick­ets on sale at 10 a.m. July 7. ($20-$30, axs.com)

the youngest son of reg­gae leg­end Bob Mar­ley and no stranger to Den­ver’s cannabis-friendly en­vi­rons, re­turns to the metro area to play the Gothic Theatre on Sept. 21. Tick­ets for the 16-and-up show are on sale at 10 a.m. July 7. ($35.75, axs.com)
