New shows: OneRepublic's Denver Acoustic Christmas, Galactic at the Ogden and more

Ah, yes, the holiday season is now officially in full swing. We know this, of course, because, well, Black Friday fired the warning shot last week, and the holiday shows are coming fast and furious: Most notably, Ryan Tedder and OneRepublic are bringing back their Denver Acoustic Christmas to the Ogden Theatre for the second year running with Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Flobots and Zach Heckendorf. Not yuletide related, but full of cheer nonetheless: We've also got new shows from Galactic, Reel Big Fish, Queensryche, Mondo Generator, Pennywise and Testament. Keep reading for the full rundown on those, as well as local radio special show playlists and the week's top album sales.
