There are many fantastic shows to catch and tons of amazing music to hear, to start off August. Between Red Rocks, Mishawaka Amphitheatre and the Denver Botanic Gardens there are more shows next week than anyone could possibly catch in seven days. With the Arise Music & Arts Festival coming in about two weeks, there will be tons of acts playing individual shows at some of the other venues along the Front Range. As usual, I have marked the shows I recommend with an * after the venue’s name, and there are a lot of them. For more extensive lists of coming shows and festivals, check-out the Coming Attractions and Festival Time pages. That’s What I Know, So That’s What You Know!! Enjoy!!

HAPPY LISTENING!!!! 😉
