Los Angeles-based folk-rock outfit Dawes will be rolling through Denver this summer. The band will stop into the Ogden Theatre on Saturday, July 22 for an intimate concert. Dawes carries on the storied tradition of L.A.’s Laurel Canyon sound—the band recorded their debut album, North Hills, in Laurel Canyon—made popular by such L.A. denizens as Crosby, Stills & Nash, Neil Young, Gram Parsons and Joni Mitchell. Tickets for Dawes in Denver go on sale Friday, April 14 at 10:00 a.m. MST. You can find tickets here.
Consisting of brothers Taylor (guitar, vocals) and Griffin Goldsmith (drums), along with keyboardist Lee Pardini and bassist Wylie Gelber, the Malibu-bred Dawes immediately made waves in 2009 with their debut North Hills. The band’s sound caught the attention of L.A. singer-songwriter and producer Jonathan Wilson, who invited Dawes to an informal jam session with some pretty heavy hitters in the rock world including Conor Oberst (Bright Eyes), Chris Robinson (Black Crowes) and Benmont Tench (Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers).
Don’t miss your chance to catch the heirs of the Laurel Canyon sound when they stop into Denver’s Ogden Theatre on July 22. You can find more select Dawes dates on AXS here.
