The fourteen best shows in Denver this weekend

Well, hopefully the hail and tornadoes are over. Certainly this is no weekend to be stuck at home, not with a Monday off and a shocking array of great shows. Esme Patterson will finally play that in-store performance at Twist & Shout to celebrate her excellent Woman to Woman. Country royalty past (Charlie Daniels Band) and present (Randy Rogers Band) play Saturday and Sunday at the big outdoor venues. There's plenty more, including a solid hardcore double-bill with Judge and Cro-Mags at Summit Music Hall. The rest of our picks follow.
