Are you enjoying October so far? Although we are already halfway through the month, there are still so many concerts to see. In fact, this week alone offers over 70 shows and events going on around the Denver music scene. If you’re looking for some new local music to check out, visit venues such as Larimer Lounge or Lost Lake. If you’re in the mood for some national chart-topping talent, check out Red Rocks or The Pepsi Center this week. Whatever you do, we hope you have fun exploring this week in Denver concerts.
