As cold weather began to hit Colorado this October, concert-goers bundled up or retreated indoors to party to an array of incredible bands, from the Kings of Leon to Queens of the Stone Age. This month we saw the opening of Temple nightclub, HIM's last concert in Denver, the long-awaited return of Rabbit in the Moon, and Janet Jackson, to boot. Here are some of our favorite photos of concerts in October.
