Anythink Backyard Concert Series | Presented by Xcel Energy

Anythink’s Backyard Concert Series brings the community together through music. Grab the family and meet new neighbors at the one-acre park adjacent to Anythink Wright Farms, located at 5877 E. 120th Ave. in Thornton. You don’t even have to pack your picnic basket – we’ll have food and beverages available for purchase at a minimal price. Delicious beers will be available from our generous sponsor, Periodic Brewing. Food options include Corner of Gourmet and El Lechon.

Not only is this a fun, free Friday night – it’s also a fundraiser for the Anythink Foundation. Funds raised through food and beverage sales help Anythink to provide special programs and projects for the community. Supporters can also donate at the show and online here.

The Backyard Concert Series is free and open to the public, from 6:30-8:30 pm, on the second Friday of each month. Food and drinks will be available starting at 5:30 pm.

The Backyard Concert Series is made possible by generous support from community sponsors, Xcel Energy, Mountain States Toyota, The Smile Generation, Stifel, Periodic Brewing, Colorado Swim School, Ciancio Ciancio Brown, Butler Snow LLP, Secure American Insurance and TBK Bank

What can I bring to the Backyard Concert Series?

  • Family & friends – All ages are welcome!
  • Dogs – Woof!
  • Lawn chairs and blankets – Get comfy!
  • Food – We'll have a variety of food trucks, and 10 percent of all food sales benefit the Anythink Foundation.

What should I leave at home?

No outside alcohol is allowed. In order to continue hosting these fun, family-friendly events, we must strictly enforce this policy. Instead, please enjoy the beer and wine available on-site for purchase – it's for a great cause!

About the bands

Union Gray

Union Gray is a grassroots country band from Denver. Their brand of country mixes flavors from the red dirt of Oklahoma down to the heart of Texas and up to Nashville. They have shared the stage as support for artists such as Cody Canada and the Departed, Craig Morgan, Dwight Yoakam and more.

Irie Still

Irie Still is a Colorado-based reggae band founded in 1995. Their style, steeped first and foremost in the danceable beats of reggae, incorporate elements of hip-hop, soca, dance hall, calypso, ska, Afro-beat and tribal rhythms. Onstage, they are an overwhelming powerhouse. Playing mostly original music, the band incorporates audience participation, soaring vocal harmony and thought-provoking consciousness into a live set.

Mama Magnolia

Like a musical time-warp where Etta James fronted Lake Street Dive, Mama Magnolia pepper their brew of soul and rock with boisterous horns, jazzy flavor, gospel heart, classical resonances, and even a little hip-hop swagger. The Denver six-piece would be just as at home in a New York City jazz dive as they would be on forested festival grounds.
