What You'll Get
The thrill of seeing one's favorite musicians in concert often alleviates the stress of modern life and the sweaty delirium from contracting Beatlemania. Enjoy an aural antidote with today's GrouponLive deal: for $13, you get one general-admission ticket to see Karl Denson's Tiny Universe at Fillmore Auditorium on Monday, October 31, at 7 p.m. (up to a $25 value after ticketing fees).
Fusing rock, funk, and afrobeat elements, the six members of Karl Denson's Tiny Universe span genres in their contemporary jazz compositions. During "Halloween '71 Revisited," Denson leads his troupe of beat keepers through the Rolling Stones' entire Sticky Fingers album, churning out spirited renditions of hits such as Brown Sugar, Wild Horses, and the perennially underappreciated Monster Mash 2. Heavily influenced by classic rock, special guest Rose Hill Drive turns up the volume during a head-banging performance of The Who's Who's Next. Opener Anders Osborne, known for the soul of slide guitar solos and the unprecedented luster of his beard, starts out the night with high-energy original material. Renovated in 1999 to evoke the famous Fillmore in San Francisco, the Fillmore Auditorium began life in 1907 as the Mammoth Roller Rink and has ushered global stars and dignitaries onto its stage.

About Fillmore Auditorium
The Fillmore Auditorium—founded in 1907 as the Mammoth Roller Rink and renovated in 1999 to evoke the famous Fillmore in San Francisco—has hosted numerous stars and dignitaries on its stage. Although everyone from Marilyn Manson to James Blunt has packed the concert schedule, the space remains an especially popular site for jam bands; Phish mastermind Trey Anastasio christened the revamped venue in 1999 by performing a marathon set.
