I have yet to listen to that damn “Friday, Friday” song on YouTube; I absolutely refuse to let that nasally tweenager and her annoyingly catchy lyrics infiltrate my busy schedule. And anyway, if she were cool at all, she’d know that Mondays are the new Friday, especially in Boulder. Who knew? Catacombs, 2115 13th Street, for starters. Motown Mondays are back and the perfect excuse to get rowdy on a school night. Head down at 9:30 p.m. to get your (old school) dance on and take advantage of their $2 Shiner Bock drafts and $3 Ketel One drinks. And if you really wanna go classy, order a Colt 45 Blast, only served on Monday nights.
Nightly specials available online at catacombsbar.net.
If you’re looking for a more modern Monday, check out Basmentalism this Monday from 9 p.m. to close. Now that the weather is warmer, Radio 1190 is bringing local and underground hip-hop to the K’s China rooftop, 1325 Broadway Street, every week. If you think you can handle it, you’re invited to bring your hottest freestyle for a chance to get on the mic. If not, ask for a Volcano at the bar and then hit the stage.
