These are your shows and festivals along the Front Range and beyond, for next week. There is something happening at Red Rocks every day from July 13 to July 19, so there is music for almost everyone, at just that venue. With Boz Scaggs, Buddy Guy, Bruce Hornsby and Jurassic 5 playing shows around, how can anyone not find some live music to hear, over this week. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue name. For an extended view of shows to look forward to over the next few months, check the Coming Attractions page. The Festival Time page has most of the festivals happening along the Front Range, as well as some that are worthwhile, outside of the area. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
