We are officially entering the halfway point for the month of August, which is hard to believe. School is either already in session or at least approaching and fall is right around the corner. Although there will be plenty of Denver concerts in the coming months, the summer concert season doesn’t last forever. Before your fall schedule starts to pile up, treat yourself to any one of the 100+ concerts going on in the Mile High City this week.

Monday, August 13

Recommended: Funky Feat w/ Paul Barrere, Fred Tackett, Kenny Gradney, Gabe Ford @ Soiled Dove Underground

Funky Feat (better known as Little Feat) started all the way back in 1969 and is composed of members Paul Barrere, Fred Tackett, Kenny Gradney and Gabe Ford. Funky Feat brings elements of blues rock, Americana and folk together to produce a wide variety of songs and sounds.
