Denver’s recently reopened Civic Center grounds are set to host a slew of events this year after not only a hiatus in public gatherings since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, but also a six-month closure.
On Monday, AEG Rocky Mountains announced that it would bring the groovy sounds of Houston band Khruangbin to the reopened park this fall. The predominantly instrumental outfit will take place on September 27 with support from Denver indie maven and Ghanaian-Australian singer Genesis Owusu.
Khruangbin comes to Denver right after the release of a new album, “Texas Moon”. The five-song EP is a sister record to 2020’s “Texas Sun.” Both were created in collaboration with Texas R&B singer Leon Bridges.
Tickets at the Civic Center Park Show costs from $59.95 to $129.95 and goes on sale Friday.
Denver officials closed the Civic Center park last September in response to issues including widespread drug use that left the area littered with needles and other paraphernalia. They have since worked to clean up the park and rehabilitate the grass. Some areas remain closed to the public except for authorized events.
The city’s iconic Mile High 4/20 festival kicked off the 2022 concert season at Civic Center Park, along with other events including a Cinco de Mayo Festival (May 7-8) and a concert headlining Still Woozy, Goth Babe and Hippo Campus (July 9) â are already filling the calendar there. Hip-hop artist Busta Rhymes will perform a free show at the park on June 10.
