A new week means a new round of shows headed to Colorado and also another List’n Up countdown of the top events of the week. Below we have the 5 shows we think are the can not miss events for the next 7 days!
5. Squnto at Rawkus (Thursday)
A rising force in the bass music scene, 2015 has been huge for SQUNTO thus far. Receiving support from Excision, Trampa, and a plethora of well recognized artists, there is no sign of when this bass juggernaut will slow down. With deadly performances and an incredibly unique perspective on music, culture, and life itself, SQUNTO keeps his fans interested, engaged, and begging for more.

4. Audien at The Church Nightclub (Friday)
In the middle of a global explosion of Electronic Dance Music, a genre that thrives in the most exclusive nightclubs of the world’s cosmopolitan cities, a prodigious producer has emerged from the unlikeliest of places. The small seaport town of Mystic, Connecticut, has been the home of Audien (AKA Nate Rathbun) for his entire life, and it’s in a small apartment in Mystic where Audien began creating music in 2008. Using a very basic set up, and a secret cocktail of plug-ins, Audien worked diligently to hone his craft. By age 17, while his friends were either preparing college applications or teeing up jobs, Audien began to test the waters by sending his unsolicited music out to producers, labels & bloggers. Though confident in his sound, Audien carefully managed his expectations, suspecting it was unlikely that he’d hear back from a random demo submission. An enthusiastic response came, however, from Flashover Recordings, the trance label owned by beloved Dutch Producer/DJ Ferry Corsten. Audien’s single “Rise & Shine” was released, and soon thereafter he was off to the races.

3. NETSKY at Beta Nightclub (Friday)
Rarely have we seen someone rise through the ranks as quickly as Boris Daenen, a.k.a Netsky. Leading a wave of new skool D+B talent from Europe with his blend of uplifting, melancholic melodies and heavy dancefloor bass + beats, Netsky’s popularity is astounding. A celebrity in his own country, he has received numerous awards and accolades and continues to impress audiences across the world with his Netsky LIVE! show with full band.

2. edIT at The Black Box (Saturday)
edIT is a legend both in the studio and on the stage. 1/3 of the uber-influential super trio The Glitch Mob, his experience has earned him much respect throughout the dance music world. Dark, industrial, heavy, and yep, glitchy, he is the perfect headliner for a Saturday night at the synonymous Black Box. It’s gonna get grimey.
1. Big Wild at the Gothic Theatre (Saturday + Sunday)
Stemming from a relentless desire to create something new, Big Wild’s sound taps into the natural curiosity we all share by exploring beyond conventional boundaries in music. Oh yea, and Phantoms (support) ain’t nothin’ to miss either.
