I know that to some degree the list looks a little thinner than usual, with the prospects of plumping up over the next couple of weeks. I think there are venues that shy away from getting big acts around Independence Day, since people are traveling and want to be outside. That is why Red Rocks is stacked for five big shows in a row next week. Despite the short list, there is still some terrific live music to hear this week. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
