Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Chris Thile has decided he's bored of not selling thousands of tickets at a time, so Nickel Creek is back, and they're coming to Denver. Rod Stewart and Santana are also into selling thousands of tickets, so they'll be coming through as well. Incidentally, Santana has never meet a collaboration he didn't say yes to. He and Slash should do something. Maybe they could trade hats.

Keep reading to see what other shows are on sale, what songs were played on local radio this past week, and what's selling at local record stores.
