This Week In Concerts – Betty Who, Lettuce, Sublime with Rome, TOKiMONSTA and More

Hello Denver concert-goers and welcome to the second week of June. Over the course of the next seven days, you will have the chance to pick and choose what concerts you’ll want to see from a list of over 60. The Denver concert scene is as busy as ever and to make it even better – it’s summertime. Whatever you decide to do this week is up to you, but we hope you’ll find this guide useful in your concert adventures.

Monday, June 10

To kick things off on Monday night, Sublime with Rome is returning to Red Rocks. Sublime is responsible for anthemic songs such as “Santeria” and “What I Got” both released back in 1996, the same year the band lost their frontman, Bradley Nowell. Fast forward over 10 years later, and Sublime is still keeping Nowell’s spirit alive with singer Rome taking lead. Fellow artists Soja, Common Kings and Seranation are on the bill for Monday night as well.
