This Week's Day-by-Day Picks

Monday, July 28

Perennial pop-acoustic favorite Shawn Colvin at the Chautauqua Auditorium? It's a natural: The rustic old music shack (actually more like a very large barn with acoustics) provides the perfect foil for Colvin's signature mixture of clear-eyed original songs and thoughtful covers, always delivered in front-and-center form, with a sweet voice, handy accompaniment and a good helping of stage smarts. Colvin settles into Chautauqua's stage, 900 Baseline Road, Boulder, tonight at 8 p.m.; for tickets, $40 to $45, call 303-440-7666 or log on to www.chautauqua.com.

A couple of bottomless classics will be served up on the rocks tonight, and we're not talking aged whiskey or a rare Burgundy: We're talking Neil Young and Crazy Horse at Red Rocks, with Texas songsmith Lucinda Williams as a warmup. Young's lost nothing with age -- he's still broadcasting from musical bedrock, still in collusion with Crazy Horse, his right-hand band of three decades, banging a drum in rock's primeval forest and providing inspiration to new generations of musicians. And Williams is a voice we'll be hearing for years to come, too, with a lengthening battery of sharp, subtle and time-transcending songs. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. today and tomorrow for a pair of 7:30 p.m. shows under the stars; for tickets, $37.50 to $87.50, call 303-830-TIXS.

As Sex in the City prepares to teeter on spike heels into the sunset, one wonders what's next for author Candace Bushnell, upon whose best-selling book the HBO series is based. Trading Up, a fictional comedy of manners and her latest bestseller-to-be, is a good place to find out. Bushnell reads from and signs the book tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover Book Store, 2955 East First Avenue; for details, call 303-322-7727 or log on to www.tatteredcover.com.
