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!!

There are many fantastic shows to catch and tons of amazing music to hear, to start off August. Between Red Rocks, Mishawaka Amphitheatre and the Denver Botanic Gardens there are more shows next week than anyone could possibly catch in seven days. With the Arise Music & Arts Festival coming in about two weeks, there will be tons of acts playing individual shows at some of the other venues along the Front Range. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name, and there are a lot of them. For more extensive lists of coming shows and festivals, check-out the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
