It’s almost summer time which is all the more reason to go out and see some Denver concerts happening this week. As the weather becomes warmer, you have no excuse to not make it to one of the more than 15 Red Rocks shows or any other of the 70 (and more) concerts this week. Why not celebrate Mother’s Day by grabbing some brunch and listening to music at one of the many Mother’s Day brunches going on this week? May is already shaping up to be a stellar month for concerts. Enjoy yourselves, Denver.
