Welcome to the weekend! As per usual, there's a gajillion shows to choose from. We have them all listed in our concert calendar, which, as you know, is the most comprehensive database you're going to find this side of anywhere. Seriously, it's massive. Take a look at the thing. It's overwhelming even for us. And since you've been working your butt off all week, we're guessing that you haven't had a chance to cull through the listings to find your weekend's best bets. That's why you have us. We've done all the heavy lifting for you, and put together a list of the five best concerts in Colorado this weekend -- we'd say Denver, but, as you'll see, a few of these are outside the city limits -- followed by a list of a few others that are worth checking out.
