With a flair for songwriting and a voice like 2-stroke dirt bike, Sterling, Ill.’s Trevor Sensor doesn’t need much more than an acoustic guitar to grab a room by the throat. See you there, and if you don’t make it out, follow our music musings on Twitter and our selfies on Instagram. If you do, mind where you put your jacket. (His strong debut, “Andy Warhol’s Dream,” doesn’t come out until June 16 on discerning indie label Jagjaguwar.) It’s a good time to catch the 23 year old, in other words, on one of his first big tours, in an opening slot for chamber-pop septet the Family Crest at Denver’s Lost Lake Lounge on May 22, while the inspiration for the songs is still fresh and before touring has a chance to resemble something like work.

Everclear and Trevor Sensor are our picks for the best shows around Denver this week. The five-piece’s high-saturation music videos lit up the MTV of the era, turning a country on to a low-test brand of punk with singles like “Father of Mine” that would pave the way for a massive wave of grunge and, ugh, ska. Hell, he doesn’t even need an album. Everclear
