How did we already make it to the end of May? It seems like the month just started, but as they say – time flies when there are so many concerts to see. The Denver concert scene is going to send May off in style with all of the events happening this week. We also hear that concert tickets make great graduation gifts, so keep that in mind as you venture out into the music scene.
