Southern rock band Birch Street will play two back-to-back nights at the Snake River Saloon in Keystone. Birch Street has quickly become one of Colorado’s most celebrated up-and-coming acts and are poised to follow in the footsteps of the many recent local Colorado acts to take their talents to a national audience. But behind their rapid ascent lies a tight-knit quintet of longtime friends with their own unique flavor of rock and roll blended with dirty blues and country soul. Their meaningful lyrics and musicianship evoke and transform the traditions of these genres in such a way that is celebrated by traditionalists and modern appreciators alike. Birch Street has roots not unlike most bands, with high school friends Jake Langenhorst (vocals/rhythm guitar) and Chad Macht (bass) wanting to form their own band. In 2011, the duo were referred to Cooper Leith (drums) by a mutual musical teacher, with Andy Burns (lead guitar) and Sheldon Slater (piano/keyboards) joining soon after leaving another project they were in together. Doors open at 4 p.m., music starts at 9:30 p.m. Call (970) 468-2788.

Beats Antique brings its Creature Carnival to Frisco

Beats Antique will play The Barkley Ballroom on Sunday, Oct. 18 as part of its Creature Carnival tour. Growing like wildfire under the canopy of live electronica and experimental world fusion music, the acclaimed musical trio Beats Antique consists of David Satori, production, live instrumentation; Tommy Cappel, production, percussion; and Zoe Jakes, dance, choreography. Forming in 2006, the group now headlines various music festivals across the country including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Electric Forest. With a stage performance containing more sensory indulgences than the most lavish genie’s lair, Beats Antique will indulge their fans to a raw, animalistic musical event that blurs the lines between the provocative, the spiritual, and the artistic while still maintaining allegiance to the muses of class and beauty. Their ability to blur the line between artist and audience even before the curtain rises creates a total escape both through live performance and the album experience that leaves critics and fans reeling alike. This show is sold out.
