This is the music to hear along the Front Range, next week. With big shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre and a fair amount of decent shows scattered about over the area, there is no shortage of fantastic live music to catch.  As usual, I have marked the shows we recommend with an * after the venue name. For more extensive lists of concerts and festivals coming to the area 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!!
