This is a pretty complete list of the live music to hear along the Front Range, next week. There are some big names coming through the area, including several Garth Brooks’ concerts at the Pepsi Center. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue name. The weather is only getting warmer, so there are less good reasons not to get out and hear some live music. For more extensive lists of concerts and festivals, coming to Colorado over the coming months, check-out the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
