This Week In Concerts – Lady Gaga, Nathaniel Rateliff & The Nightsweats, SUSTO and More

Any guesses on when the snow is going to start falling? We are already halfway through December and we have yet to see a proper snowfall. Although there isn’t snow on the ground yet, there are still plenty of shows going on across the greater Denver area this week. Send someone an early holiday present and surprise them with tickets to a show at any one of the many active concert venues within The Mile High City, or send yourself an early present too. Why not both?

Monday, December 11

Remember that 1999 song “Butterfly”? Well, guess what – it’s by Crazy Town and they are coming to Denver on Monday to kick off this busy week of December concerts. The Los Angeles ensemble is known for their blend of rock, rap, electronic music and pop. Join them with Rooster, My Own Summer, Solar and Aloris as they all venture down to South Broadway to perform at Herman’s Hideaway.
