We made it to the last week of April and what a month it’s been. This week the concert offerings will send April out with a bang, a bass note and maybe a cowbell if we’re lucky. If you’re worried about budget, there are plenty of free and really cheap concerts to attend all over Denver. If you’re worried about missing out, we have you covered with this list below. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter to get this list before everyone else by clicking the link at the bottom. As always, we hope you enjoy this week in concerts.
