So the organizers of the Rock 'N' Roll Denver Marathon evidently take the name of the event very seriously. So much so that they've convinced the members of Semisonic -- you know, the dudes who did that song "Closing Time" -- to get the old band back together, man, just for the occasion. Wisely, however, they're also keenly aware of the fact that that's nowhere enough rock to satiate the masses and have thus tapped more than thirty local acts to play along the race route. Find out who's playing where after the jump.
