The five best concerts in Denver this weekend

In most towns, going out the weekend after New Year's is probably as deflating and anti-climatic as showing up a week after the Broncos have won the Super Bowl -- after the impromptu revelry in the streets and the work-stopping weekday parade makes its way through the streets of downtown -- and expecting the same level of exuberance. This is Denver, though. We're not most towns, obviously. Even in the slower weeks, you can find something worth getting off the couch for, and this weekend is no exception. From back-to-back performances at the Bluebird by Who's Bad, the touring Michael Jackson tribute act, to BoomBox's two-night stand at the Ogden, there's plenty of goodness in store. Keep reading for the five best concerts in Denver.
