April 20th is the highest of holidays and one of the best days to see music in Colorado. After some of the largest smoke outs in the country go down at 4:20 in the afternoon, venues all over the state are filled with incredible talent and something to satisfy many concertgoers. The most 420 friendly venue in Colorado is Cervantes and they have Two Fresh, Lazer Sword, Mochipet, Papa Skunk, and Ecliptik for a glitch hop/hip hop throw down in the main room as well as B Foundation, Apex Vibe, Roster McCabe, Katastro, and Sober Down playing reggae in the Other Side.
If you’re looking for a different style of electronic music in Denver, check out Sphongle, Random Rab, and Lynx at the Bluebird or Sleepyhead, Salva, .anasi, Treethugger (Fisk), and Wyatt Lamond are holding it down at Club Vinyl. For all the Northern Colorado whompers, Vibesquad, Michal Menert, The Villians, and Trichrome are at the El Carousel Night Club in Greeley. Fort Collins electronic music enthusiasts can enjoy either Nosaj Thing, Break Science, Ill-Mannered, Acidophiles, and Untyed Laces at the Aggie Theater or Steve Bonez, Don Womp, Skywalkker, BathDub, and Pink Elephants at Hodi’s Half Note.
For the non-electronically inclined, you may be on of those lucky enough to already have tickets for Duran Duran’s sold out show at the Ogden Theater in Denver and for all you hip hop heads out there Collie Budz, New Kingston and Los Rakas are at the Fox Theater in Boulder. It doesn't matter if you're high or not, if you are in Colorado, there is absolutely no reason to miss out on so much amazing music this 4/20!!!
