When the sun goes down, bats take wing and search the night skies for tasty insects. Bring the whole family to see photos and learn about these mysterious flying mammals. Ronal Kerbo, a former cave resource specialist for the U.S. National Park Service, will share mysterious details on where bats live, what they eat, and how they survive in places like Colorado. All ages are welcome, but the event is best for children ages 12 and older. Tue 6-8 p.m.

Paramore

Submitted by Jake Jensen on Tue, 03/19/2013 - 12:44pm

After a string of multiplatinum hits, two of this feisty pop-punk band’s founding members quit in 2010. The remaining trio is ready to reclaim glory with its self-titled album, released in April. The record includes the single “Now,” another angsty fist-pumper to add to the band’s canon. Tue 6:30 p.m.

 

Listen to Your Mother

Submitted by Jerilyn Forsythe on Fri, 04/26/2013 - 12:07pm

Every mother and child have a different relationship, but there’s always room to relate. Just in time for Mother’s Day, 12 Denverites recite their own pre-written works about the good and bad of motherhood. Stories will divulge each author’s (not all of them necessarily mothers themselves) unique maternal memories. Bonus: 10 percent of ticket proceeds will be donated to Safehouse Denver, which provides support for victims of domestic violence and their children. Tue 7 p.m.

 

Big Boi

Submitted by Elliott Johnston on Sat, 04/27/2013 - 3:54pm

One half of iconic hip-hop duo OutKast, Big Boi has always played the less freaky, more streetwise yang to partner Andre 3000's yin. But over two fine solo records—2010's Sir Lucious Left Foot...The Son of Chico Dusty and 2012's Viscious Lies and Dangerous Rumors—he's shown that his sonic ideas are just as creative and colorful as his bandmate's. Big Boi's latest LP features synth-heavy collaborations with newbie indie-rockers as well as rap mainstays like Ludacris. Tue 9 p.m.
