EDM in Frisco

The Barkley Ballroom hosts VibeSquaD on Friday, Feb. 19. From coast to coast and beyond, the electronic music spectrum has shifted radically to the low end, generating ribcage-rattling blasts from the underground on up. Tucked away in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the Boulder-Denver-Ft.Collins triangle is the epicenter of this low-frequency onslaught. At the top of the heap is Aaron Holstein, a.k.a.VibeSquaD, a musical juggernaut and fearless vanguard in a flourishing scene. Circling the globe with his wholly original brand of bass exploration, VibeSquaD is reaching wider and wider audiences with his studio tracks and out-of-control live shows. Doors open at 9 p.m.; tickets are $10-$15. Go to for more information.

Get Dyrty in Keystone

The Dyrty Byrds will play Goat Tavern in Keystone on Friday, Feb. 19. Leaving a trail of burned up bars and sweat-soaked guitars since 2009, the Dyrty Byrds have shown no mercy in their pursuit of original guitar driven rock ‘n’ roll. Tori Pater, Eric Martinez, Mike “Spanky” McCluer and Andrew Clapp are a four-piece rock band from Denver that would fit as easily into the 1970s classic/southern rock scene as they do in modern-day American music. Playing on their love of songwriting and rock ‘n’ roll, Tori Pater (Polytoxic) and Eric Martinez (Bloodkin) have been playing music together since 2004. Music starts at 10 p.m. and there is a $5 cover. Go to for more information.
