Ladies and gentlemen, lovers of music, concert dwellers and supporters of the Denver music scene – we are in the final week of November. As December begins to creep in, November is sending us into the last month of the year with a bang. This week in Denver concerts is packed to the brim. There are so many diverse musical events going on across the city, it can be hard to keep track. Luckily, we’ve provided a guide for you below.

Monday, November 26

Ever since 1980, Echo & The Bunnymen have been on the scene with their unique blend of retro ’80s synth and little hints of punk. Fast forward over 30 years later and this band is still on the move. On Monday, they are kicking things off with a performance at the Paramount Theatre. Fellow artist Enation is set to open for Echo & The Bunnymen as they make their way to the heart of LoDo.
