On July 20, Denver’s own Slim Cessna’s Auto Club will play the Levitt Denver’s inaugural show as a part of its Colorado Music Series. A rendering of the Denver Levitt Pavilion, Ruby Hill’s 7,500 person venue set to open in July 2017. When Levitt Pavilion Denver opens this summer, it will bring an outdoor, scaleable 7,500-person venue to Ruby Hill, a size that puts it among Denver’s larger music clubs like the Fillmore Auditorium and Red Rocks.
