It’s the last week of July and we’re sad to see it go. It feels like summer just started a few weeks ago, and now we are already seeing July come to an end? That’s crazy. Well, if you’re also sad to see July come to an end, savor every day this week and go explore the Denver concert scene. There are over 50 concerts going on this week, which means there is probably something for everyone.

Monday, July 23

Recommended: School of Rock National All-Stars @ Red Rocks

To start this week in concerts on Monday, the School of Rock National All-Stars are opening up for this week’s Film On The Rocks. Over the last few years, Red Rocks gives bands the chance to showcase their talents on one of the most famous stages in the world as part of the Film On The Rocks series. We can’t think of a better way to spend a summer night than with a show and a movie, and that’s just what you’ll get for this event. Plus, the film is Happy Gilmore.

On Tuesday, Paramore is returning to Denver to headline Red Rocks. Less than a year ago, Paramore ventured into LoDo and turned The Bellco Theatre into an epicenter for rock music. We couldn’t be more excited to see the rock band return to Colorado in 2018. Joining Paramore on their Red Rocks run is alt-pop band Foster The People, making this one hell of a line up you won’t want to miss.
