Icelantic’s Winter on the Rocks
w/ Adventure Club and Big Grams

Red Rocks Amphitheatre

Baby, it’s cold outside — but so what? It’s not like you and 9,400 of your closest friends won’t be able to warm up when Icelantic Skis’ annual Winter on the Rocks hits the world-renowned venue again. This year, the team stacks the bill with Canadian EDM duo Adventure Club and Big motherfuckin’ Grams (an insane collaboration between Phantogram and Big Boy from OutKast). During events past, the weather has always been somewhere between laid back and zero chill — but that’s some of the fun of it. Strap in, hold tight, Winter on the Rocks is back!

Sunday, Jan 10
w/ A$AP Ferg, Marc E Bassy, Nef the Pharaoh

1st Bank Center

G-Eazy has said that 2015 almost made his head explode. Dude’s been on fire lately, and a headlining gig at the 1st Bank Center pretty much solidifies what he’s been wanting to accomplish in such a short time. Couple that with A$AP Ferg, and we have our Sunday wrapped.

Saturday, Jan 16
w/ Wuki

Ogden Theatre

Snails makes music. Snails plays music live. That music makes Snails’ fans dance like animals. It really is that simple. Come experience an electro-come-up before he gets too big. It’s bound to happen. And tell Wuki, “Hi.” We think he owes us some money …

Saturday, Jan16
w/ Greener Grounds and Mosis

Bluebird Theater

If you already know, then you know; but if you don’t, here’s your chance to experience one of Colorado’s fastest rising local acts. It won’t be so much a DJ set as it will be an actual live performance of apt musicians wanting you to get some cardio.

Friday, Jan 22
Jack’s Mannequin
w/ special guests

Ogden Theatre

If you’re under the age of 27, it’s fine to admit you’ve never heard of Jack’s Mannequin — but we assure you, you’ve heard what’s become of it. Andrew McMahon (yes, that Andrew McMahon) retired the name a few years back, but is now reviving it for our lustful pleasure. Yaaaaas!

Friday, Jan 22
w/ Ballyhoo!

Hodi’s Halfnote

If you love yourself some Sublime w/ Rome, or Slightly Stoopid, you either really enjoy Passafire already, or should catch up and get acquainted. Its an act topping charts in its own way. Along with fellow funkers Ballyhoo!, the night promises to be drenched in positive grooves.

Sunday, Jan 24
Lupe Fiasco
w/ C1 of the Foodchain and SF1

Ogden Theatre

Well shit, isn’t this an incredible surprise? Lupe Fiasco is one of the greatest, and most controversial, voices of our generation. A live outing for him (especially in Denver) is rare. Tickets for this will slip through the cracks if you’re not careful. Don’t sleep.

Friday, Jan 29
Peking Duk
w/ special guests

Bluebird Theatre

We’re always touting the production treats coming out of Australia as something everyone should take a bite out of, and the electro house duo of Peking Duk is just another reason why. They’re platinum multiple times over — can millions of people really be so wrong?

Friday, Jan 29
Inner Oceans
w/ special guests

Lost Lake

As one of the most promising acts in Colorado (in our humble, yet always correct opinion), Inner Oceans is finally back to playing live shows after almost half a year. We’re stoked to hear what the psychedelia-tinged rock quintet has been creating in all that time.

Thursday, Feb 4
Grace Potter
w/ special guests

Boulder Theatre

She comes to town often, but we really can’t overemphasize as to why that’s not enough. Grace Potter is the greatest performer on the circuit right now, period. We wish she could just sing us lullabies every night, holding our hands and telling us everything is going to be okay.
