With the exception of the main headliners (Dennis DeYoung and the Gin Blossoms) and a handful of new local acts, the lineup for this year's Denver Day of Rock Concerts for Kids (taking place for free on five stages along the 16th Street Mall, between 15th and 16th Streets, on Saturday, May 28) doesn't look drastically different from last year's bill. (See the full lineup below.)
Angie Stevens, Something Underground, the Heyday, the Railbenders and Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers are all due to return this year, along with new acts like Monroe Monroe, Young Cities, the Congress, John Common & Blinding Flashes of Light and Bop Skizzum, among others.
