The ten best concerts in Denver this weekend

It's a good weekend for live music in Denver. Let's start at the end, with Paul Simon's Graceland collaborator Ladysmith Black Mambazo at Boulder Theater. The day before that, pop clinician Dr. Dog stops by on the same night as the collaboration between knotty rappers Madlib and Freddie Gibbs. There are more of these things -- seven more, in fact.
