Oddly enough, it would seems trio is the theme of this week’s shows, because Bear’s Den used to be a trio (Andrew, Kevin and Joey), but Joey left the band in early 2016.

at Target Center
Thursday, 01/19/17, 6pm ($29.50 - $59.50)
It still amazes me that The Lumineers went from playing the tiny 7th Street Entry to stadium-sized venues like Target Center within a year (from 2012 to 2013). The last time the band was in town, the original venue The Myth was quickly upgraded to the Roy Wilkins Auditorium due to popular demand.
The Denver-based band is back in town, to promote their second album Cleopatra (Dualtone). The record received overwhelming positive reviews and hit #1 in the UK Albums Chart and the Billboard 200 upon its release. Their self-titled debut album already became certified Platinum in the US and Ireland, with Gold certifications in the UK, Australia and Canada.
Come out to the Target Center this Thursday to check out why this is one of the biggest folk/rock/Americana band in the world right now.
Andrew Bird and Margaret Glaspy to open.
Note: In late May and June, The Lumineers will be opening up for U2 on their special 30th Anniversary of The Joshua Tree tour.

When Bear’s Den was last in town, on September 24th, we had to see them at the sold-out show at the Triple Rock Social Club... despite already being committed to see KT Tunstall on the same night. It all worked out, but if you had to choose that night too - here is your second chance of catching Bear’s Den out of their winter hibernation at the Fine Line Music Cafe next Wednesday, January 25th.
Although not listed on the venue’s website, but Gill Landry will be opening the show.
