This Week In Concerts – De La Soul, Gnash, Jacquees, SunSquabi and More

We are in the final days of January folks, but don’t worry – there is still plenty of time left to see as many Denver concerts as possible. You can expect the classic hustle and bustle the Denver music scene is known for as there are over 80 concerts happening throughout the Mile High City this week. We’ve gone through the calendars and tracked as many as we could for you to use in the list below. We encourage you to get out and explore all that the Denver music scene has to offer.

Monday, January 28

To kick things off on Monday this week, we’ve got a Motown themed party to check out at Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox. Ophelia’s “Motown On Mondays” is one of the venue’s weekly events that features Motown classics playing throughout the night. If you’re looking for a unique way to spend a Monday night, this will definitely be the event to attend. Oh, and did we mention that the event is free?
