The Offspring, King Rat and the best concerts in Denver this weekend

German DJ Ben Böhmer is bringing deep house study music to the Gothic tonight, while Denver punk heroes King Rat Moe’s Original BBQ and Bowl rock in Englewood with a solid lineup of punk bands.

Bury Mia headlines a big pop punk bill at the Fox Theater in Boulder on Saturday, and The Offspring lets the bad times pass at the Fillmore Auditorium.

On Sunday, trippy indie pop band Crumb spreads out the Summit, while the ridiculously prolific Tech N9ne takes on Red Rocks with opener X-Raided.

Ben Bohmer
Friday, April 29, 9 p.m.
Gothic Theatre, 3263 South Broadway, Englewood
$30-$35
Ben Böhmer started playing the trumpet and piano as a child and then moved on to compose his own synthesizer music. Its kind of progressive deep house is equally good for dancing and studying. So bring your glow sticks and let’s party.

King Rat
Friday, April 29, 9 p.m.
Moe’s Original BBQ and Bowl, 3295 South Broadway, Englewood
$12-$18
The Return of King Rat! If you like punk and want to see a legendary punk band from Denver, your search for shows is over this weekend. You also get a good supporting lineup with punk opera making RED STiNGER, Pitch Invasion and the Cattle Axe.

Bury Mia
Saturday 30 April, 8 p.m.
Fox Theatre, 1135 13th Street, Boulder

$15-$18

Denver pop punk outfit Bury Mia promises full-tilt boogie level energy from the first chord. With this bill you also get the Losers Club putting its own spin on 2000s influenced pop punk. Hellocentral mixes pop punk with indie rock, and Dayshaper, the outlier on the bill, brings a mix of alternative rock and indie rock. These bands are similar enough to provide a cohesive night of music, but different enough to keep it interesting.

The offspring
Saturday 30 April, 7 p.m
Fillmore Auditorium, 1510 Clarkson Street
$49.50-$79.50

The Offspring were one of those 90s punk bands that got ridiculously big. There will be very angry 43-year-olds in the audience if the band doesn’t do at least four songs from crush. And, if they’re honest, “Pretty Fly (for a White Guy).”

Crumb
Sunday 1 May 19.00 o’clock
Summit Music Hall, Blake Street 1902
$25
Described as indie pop with influences of jazz and psychedelia, Crumb plays a dreamy, immersive style of music. Dry ice opens.

Tech N9ne
Sunday 1 May 18.00 o’clock
Red Rocks Amphitheater, 18300 West Alameda Parkway, Morrison
$49.75

Tech N9ne released Asin9ne, his 23rd solo album, last year. He’s smoking at a gas pump on the cover, which makes us wonder if he’s tired of making albums. Actually recording an album over the phone while in prison, X-Raided takes the resourceful nature of hip-hop to dangerous new levels. Joey Cool and iMayday are also on the program.
