This Week in Colorado Concerts

This week and the months rolling forward include some concerts outside of the virtual sphere. We support social distancing and remaining isolated if you’re at high risk for COVID-19,  but we also wanted to highlight the local businesses finding safe ways to bring live entertainment back.

We will continue to promote both virtual and in-person small concerts with safe guidelines. To be considered please email [email protected]
