The Hi Dive on South Broadway. (Kevin J. Beaty/Denverite)

It’s going to be psychedelic, witchy and maybe a little beachy at the Hi-Dive tonight, where Mr. Elevator is playing with L.A. Witch and Denver’s own Savage Blush.

Doors open at 7 S. Broadway at 8 p.m., and the show starts with the Savage Blush at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are $13.


The Slackers are playing the Marquis Theater, 2009 Larimer St., tonight, and whether or not you’re going to make it to the show, you can go grab a few beers with the band at Ratio Beerworks, 2920 Larimer St.

They’ll be there from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. to talk with the Mostly Harmless Podcast’s Damian Burford and play a few songs. It’s free and no tickets are required.


Tonight, the Logan Lecture series is hosting Ana Teresa Fernández, whose work is featured in the “Mi Tierra” exhibit on display now at the Denver Art Museum.

She’ll discuss “the politics of intermingling identities and the ways it shapes culture and social rhetoric through painting, performance and video” from 6 to 7 p.m. at the museum, 100 W. 14th Ave. Parkway.

There will be free snacks and a cash bar. Tickets are free for DAMC members and students, $8 for volunteers, $12 for artists, $15 for DAM members and $18 for non-members.
