Are you in the mood for live music? Do you want to catch a few Colorado shows before winter really sets in? Several fantastic shows will roll through the state in November. Here are ten you might want to catch.
Festival season is over, and the big outdoor concerts are on hiatus. That is not necessarily bad news, though. How about enjoying shows in a more intimate setting at some of Colorado's best rooms?
There's something to be said about enjoying a few indie groups. Then again, seeing a Country legend in a smaller hall is awesome, too. Here are ten Colorado shows for your consideration.
