December is here and that means some stellar shows at Denver’s Bluebird Theater this holiday season. From bluegrass to blues, metal to electronica--not to mention some Colorado favorites-- December at the Bluebird offers up a wide range of music to fill any music lover with holiday cheer.
December kicks off with bluegrass band The Lil Smokies finishing up a three-night run at the Bluebird. Dec. 2 will see a performance from the legendary Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein of Misfits while the first week in December gets underway with a doom metal take on Pink Floyd’s groundbreaking 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon. If you're a metal fan, who loves Pink Floyd, you definitely want to check out "Doom Side of the Moon."
If you’re in more of a dancey mood, consider White Panda on Dec. 4, Colorado’s own Sunsquabi on Dec. 7, or Ookay on Dec. 8. If it’s some downhome music you’re after don’t miss the double bill of country bluesman Charlie Parr and banjo picker--and founder of Old Crow Medicine Show--Willie Watson when they come to the Bluebird on Dec. 9.
Dec. 15 will see two performances from legendary New Orleans second line aficionados Rebirth Brass Band while Colorado favorites The Railbenders bring their outlaw country sound to the Bluebird on Dec. 21. DJ group Keys N Krates brings their hip-hop infused electronica to the Bluebird in front of the Christmas break.
Rage Against the Machine tribute act Rally ‘Round the Family gets the New Year’s festivities underway while Denver’s own DeVotchKa rings in NYE propper with two shows to close out December and 2018. You can find a complete list of Bluebird December dates and ticket info below.
