Many varied music options are in place this week, but nothing outrageously compelling a la last week - but that's OK because the weather's been sterling and the leaves are changing colors up in the mountains, so it's a good time to head out after you get off work and soak the final days of good weather before you-know-what arrives Brrr. Meanwhile, for us music lovers there are a couple of decent options worth exploring and some large-scale shenanigans that teens will savor. Here are the highlights:
On Tuesday night at The Depot, Ziggy Marley - yes, you know who his dad is - rolls in with a ton of reggae, including some of his late father's classics. It'll likely be a smelly night downtown, but a good time for sure. Tickets remain on sale for the 8 p.m. concert and start at $26.
Relatively low-flying, but super talented folkie duo Over The Rhine, pictured above, will be at The State Room on Tuesday night. This duo has a lot of quirky, clever songs and singer Karen Bergquist has a surreal voice. This is a show a lot of people I know would love if they only knew to be there. Consider this an inviation. Check them out singing "Latter Days," right here. http://youtu.be/ftnjUpoCHAg
For the younger crowd, Avenged Sevenfold will be at USANA Ampitheatre on Tuesday as part of RockStar Energy Drink's Uproar Festival. Featuring five bands and numerous other diversions - read merchandising booths - the event starts at 2 p.m. (?!?) and tickets start at $20.
Also Wednesday night, Minus the Bear bring their 10th anniversary tour into In The Venue for an 8:30 p.m. show. Here is their video for the catchy "My TIme." Tickets are $18 in advance.
