Best Of 2105: Local Venue for Live Music
With the Black Sheep's 10th anniversary fast approaching, the all-ages venue continues to offer the kind of shows that deserve its clientele's hard-earned allowances. "Whether it's Waka Flocka tossing delighted fans into a sold-out crowd after he takes a selfie with their iPhone, or Kongos pumping out eight-foot smoke rings before they hit Red Rocks the night after, we like to think this little place has something for everyone," says general manager Jeremy Grobsmith. Part of the venue's success is that it draws audiences as diverse as its musical offerings, which in the months ahead will include Hieroglyphics co-founder Del the Funky Homosapien, Rough Trade recording artists Houndmouth, glam-rock upstarts The Struts, and punk-rock warhorses Agnostic Front. "It isn't every day that you get to stand inches away from your future favorite rock star," says Grobsmith, "or ogle your former childhood crush." — Bill Forman
