Denver’s freshly reopened Civic Center park is expected 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 it is bringing the groovy sounds of Houston band Khruangbin to the reopened park this fall. The predominantly instrumental outfit swings through on Sept. 27 with support from Denver’s own indie maven Tennis and Ghanaian-Australian singer Genesis Owusu.
Khruangbin comes to Denver on the heels of releasing 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 to the Civic Center park show cost $59.95 to $129.95 and go on sale Friday.

Denver officials closed Civic Center park last September in response to problems such as rampant drug use that left the area littered with needles and other paraphernalia. They have since worked to clean up the park and rehabilitate grass. Certain areas remain closed to the public except for permitted events.
The city’s signature Mile High 4/20 Festival kicked of the 2022 concert season at Civic Center park, and and other events — including a Cinco de Mayo festival (May 7-8) and a concert headlined by Still Woozy, Goth Babe and Hippo Campus (July 9) — are already filling out the calendar there. Hip-hop artist Busta Rhymes will play a free show at the park on June 10.
