The five best concerts in Denver this weekend

Welcome to the weekend! And, oh, fingers crossed, what a weekend this will be. The sun was orange and the sky was blue when we woke up this morning. We're taking that as an omen or something. That could just be the tequila shot from last night talking, though. Saw the first night of Trampled By Turtles' two-night run at the Ogden last night. Wowzers. Dudes were on fire. Check out the review from last night and read all about it and then experience it for yourself tonight. And if that particular flavor of bluegrass isn't to your liking, no worries. There's plenty of other music to soundtrack your weekend. As always, we've got it all listed in our concert calendar, or you can keep reading for our picks for the five best concerts in Denver this weekend.
