My Morn­ing Jacket’s live prow­ess pre­cedes the Louisville, Ky., act, and de­servedly so. Less a jam band and more a hard-charg­ing, de­light­fully shapeshift­ing in­die­roots group, the Jim James-led out­fit will head­line the FirstBank

Cen­ter for what prom­ises to be a lively trio of New Year’s Eve per­for­mances. Tick­ets for the Dec. 29-31 all-ages dates in Broom­field are on sale at 10 a.m. Aug. 11. Open­ers in­clude The Revo­lu­tion

(Dec. 29), Tune-Yards (Dec. 30) and Charles Bradley & His Ex­traor­di­naires (Dec. 31). Tick­ets are $51 for Dec. 29-30 and $76 for Dec. 31, or $168 for all three days (al­ti­tudet­ick­ets.com)

“An In­ti­mate Evening With Yanni” bills it­self as “pure Yanni,” mean­ing the long-maned com­poser will be per­form­ing his work only on an acous­tic pi­ano, ready to an­swer au­di­ence ques­tions be­tween songs. Tick­ets for the Nov. 9 con­cert at Buell Theatre are on sale at 10 a.m. Aug. 11. ($39.50-$99.50, axs.com)
