These are the best of the shows going on along the Front Range, next week, which also includes the Fort Collins Music Experiment happening next Friday and Saturday in twenty-plus venues in the downtown area. There is plenty of excellent music to hear, so I have marked my recommendations with an *, after the venue’s name. For more shows coming to our area in the not-so-near future, look at the Coming Attractions page. There is also a pretty complete glimpse at the summer happenings on the Festival Time page. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉

This is the list of the best live music to hear along the Front Range, next week. With a couple of huge names, The Who and Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, and plenty of other incredible acts, coming to the area, there is hardly a reason, not to go hear some live music. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an *, after the venue’s name. For more shows playing around the area over the next few months, give a look at the Coming Attractions page. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
