Wailing Away

The Wailers, along with Bob Marley, delivered reggae music to the world, launching a movement as cultural as it was musical. Bob Marley, Bunny Wailer, Peter Tosh and the Barrett Brothers got their start the same year as the Summer of Love, which fits, considering the powerfully positive nature of the genre. Today, Marley’s spirit lives on with this legendary reggae group, which has sold a combined 250 million albums worldwide. A few of the names have changed, but the spirit of the music and all the soul remain. If you’re a reggae fan, then you love the Wailers. Period. Check them out at The Fox Theatre, 1135 13th St., Boulder, 303.447.0095

Say Cheese

Ring in the New Year with The String Cheese Incident, the best (and only) band to ever get their name from a food fight. These Colorado natives hit it big after forming in Telluride back in 1993, helping launch a new genre of Colorado-bred, grass-steeped jam rock. The String Cheese Incident returns home for a three-night stand over the New Year’s holiday. It’s an “Incident” you’re not gonna want to miss, especially if you like your soul served with a side of jamgrass. 1ST BANK Center, 11450 Broomfield Ln., Broomfield, 303.410.8497

With shows at 7 and 9 p.m., you’ll want to get your tickets early for this one. These up-and-coming standup comics are some of the hottest names on the scene right now, especially Elliot Woolsey, who’s already on a major national star-track. Come to this one so you can say that you saw them at Nissi’s way back when. At Nissi’s, 2675 N. Park Dr., Lafayette, 303.665.2757
