Oh, man, what a fall we have to look forward to. Not only will the weather resemble the refreshing coolness we've been experiencing in the Mile High City for the past few days, but the shows on tap already are stupendous. This week's most exciting announcement has to be the Afghan Whigs, who return to Denver for the first time in at least a dozen years on the night before Halloween. New dates have also been announced featuring Amanda Palmer, Aimee Mann and more. Page down for the full rundown on those shows, as well as local radio playlists and the area's top album sellers.

We're currently tracking the playlists from a number of different shows, including KTCL's Locals Only*, The Colorado Sound, an independently produced show that is broadcast all over Colorado, and The Colorado Wave, which is syndicated on a number of stations across the country. Here's what the area's local-centric specialty radio shows were spinning this week. *Playlist not available this week.
