Join this gypsy-rock quartet as they return home for their annual Halloween performance, complete with elaborate costumes and stage decorations.

After more than a decade of music-making, this Boulder-based group founded by drummer Dave Watts continues to evolve its unique, hybrid sound. Incorporating jazz, funk, salsa, and Afrobeat, The Motet's eight members evoke nonstop movement and energy from the crowd with spontaneous rythyms and melodies. Sun 9 p.m.
A hidden gem of singer-songwriter circles hits Denver, and she's bringing her family with her—figuratively speaking. The acclaimed NYC-based musician's most recent album, Reunion, draws inspiration from her immigrant grandmother and the rest of her social circle to sing tales of life, death, and other commonalities of the human experience. Sat 8 p.m.
Folk-rock troubadour John Common and his Blinding Flashes of Light combine a dash of accordion, a bit of cello, and a whole lot of acoustic joy with Common's gravely voice to create soulful, sincere songs that sound familiar, but never stale. It's not revolutionary. It's just good music. Sat 7:30 p.m.
Deemed a favorite rapper by both Jay-Z and 50 Cent, Talib Kweli is a luminary in the commercial rap scene. His music powerful in a lyrical and rythmic sense, it has a tendency to make you think while you dance to the beat. Joining him will be Big K.R.I.T.—a young artist heavily influenced by the Southern hip-hop of the 90s—the Foodchain, and Alex Chadwick. Sun 8:30 p.m.
Decked out in shiny, futuristic costumes, this Australian electro-pop duo offers nothing less than a cinematic experience. Their dreamy electronic anthems combined with smoke machines and colorful lighting round out to an unforgettable, otherworldy experience. Tue 9 p.m.
There's something about a band that doesn't take itself—or its lyrics—too seriously. Enter Cincinnati-based indie-rockers Walk the Moon. With uber-catchy hooks, upbeat tunes, and a deeply energetic stage presence, the group's feel-good attitude is just the icing on top. Sat 8 p.m.
