August proved to be an incredible month for concerts in the Denver area. Legacy groups like Guns N' Roses and Depeche Mode brought a healthy dose of nostalgia to the city, while local bands like Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats and the Lumineers played jam-packed venues. Here are some of our favorite images from this month in music.
