This is the rather modest list of live music to hear along the Front Range, next week.  Though it is not a huge list, there are certainly some quality musicians coming to the area for the third week of the month. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an *, after the venue’s name. Besides the list for next week, you can find a more comprehensive list of shows I recommend for the next several months, check-out the Coming Attractions page. Check-in next Monday to see who is playing around the area for the week of 2/22. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!
