The first week of August will provide us with an eclectic mix of live music to hear along the Front Range. From free concerts to mountain festivals, there is something for everyone on this week’s list. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Besides this list, check-out the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages for a more extensive look at what’s happening over the next few months. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

With a few shows at Red Rocks and the Sun Drenched Music Fest coming this week, there is plenty of music to hear outdoors. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Besides these shows, there is a longer list of shows coming over the next several months on the Coming Attractions page. There is also a fairly comprehensive list of festivals, near and far, on the Festival Time page. That’s What I Know, So That’s What I Know!! Enjoy!!

The first full week of March, promises several great options for live music to hear along the Front Range. Though Lyle Lovett & Robert Earl Keen are sold out in Boulder, there are still tickets available for shows by Joe Satriani, Jackie Greene, Jake Shimabukuro and many more. ‘Frozen Dead Guy Days’ look exceptionally intriguing this year and the fest is quite affordable. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an *, after the venue’s name. While winter has given us a break, it’s a perfect time to get out and hear some live music. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
