Festival passes for shows at the Wheeler Opera House went on sale last week; single tickets are on sale Jan. 3. ($50-$235, wheeleroperahouse.com)

Despite Colorado’s typically split-personality weather in recent weeks, it’s not too early to start thinking about the warmer, calmer days of summer. That’s what promoters are hoping, anyway, in announcing a David Gray show at Red Rocks Amphitheatre for July 23, 2020. Tickets for the singer-songwriter’s all-ages return are on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 8. ($45-$99.50, axs.com)

Pinegrove sounds like yet another bluegrass ramble-tamble; instead, it’s the name of a yearning indie-rock outfit from New Jersey. Tickets to the band’s next Colorado show, at Englewood’s Gothic Theatre on Feb. 16, 2020, with opener Whitney Ballen, are on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 8. ($22-$85, axs.com)

Comic Lewis Black, known for his spittle-flecked rants and ubiquity on Comedy Central, is returning for a pair of shows at the Paramount Theatre April 3-4. Tickets — a limited number of which will be available for $25 with a valid student ID — are on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 8. ($45-$75, altitudetickets.com)

The concept-heavy music of Poppy will fill the Gothic Theatre on Jan. 22, 2020, as the multihyphenate entertainer promotes her third album, “I Disagree” — which will be released just a couple days before the Gothic show. As much a singer as a kitchen-sink performance artist and digital-age parodist, she’s most certainly an acquired taste. Tickets for the 16-and-up concert are on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 8. ($22-$25, axs.com)
