April showers are supposed to bring May flowers, but so far we’ve only seen some nice weather followed by a slight drizzle of snow. The only thing crazier than Colorado weather is the Denver concert scene. We broke down the second week of April and found some great events to see.

Monday, April 9

Recommended: Dashboard Confessional w/ Beach Slang, Kississippi @ Summit Music Hall

On Monday, Dashboard Confessional is taking over Summit Music Hall to perform some of their early 2000s and modern day rock songs. During Dashboard Confessional’s almost 18-year-old career, they’ve been responsible for hits such as “Vindicated” and “Hands Down”. Earlier this year, Dashboard Confessional released Crooked Shadows to add to their discography. Join them along with Beach Slang and Kississippi as they make their way into Denver.
