This Week In Virtual Colorado Concerts

There are some states across the country that are putting forth efforts to slowly open up local economies and businesses. Although this could be seen as some light at the end of the tunnel, we still have a ways to go before we return to full normalcy. While live music is still on hold, we’ve compiled some kick-ass virtual Colorado concerts for you to check out this week. If you want your live-stream to be added to the weekly roundups please e-mail [email protected] for consideration.
