This is most, and certainly the best, of the live music to hear along the Front Range, next week. There are some national acts like Soulive, Glen Hansard and Greensky Bluegrass coming to the area, while local darlings Polytoxic, The Yawpers and Danielle Ate The Sandwich have been maintaining Colorado’s high level of music credibility, all over the place. As is the norm, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. Though the weather is getting colder, it is hard to deny your ears the opportunity to catch some of the incredible music in the area, next week. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
