The weekend is here again, and the election is over. What better way to blow of steam than with some live music? If you’re in Denver this weekend, here are some suggestions to sort through the many gigs going on.
CIRQUE DU SOLEIL: QUIDAM, NOVEMBER 9-11
Okay, so this isn’t technically a live music gig on its own–but live music is a major part of the show. I caught Quidam earlier this week, and both the acrobatics (and the music score, played by a live ensemble) are absolutely spectacular. The show is at 1stBank Center in Broomfield from now until Sunday night, and tickets start at $35. It’s well worth it to catch this show while it’s in town. For showtimes and ticket information, visit 1stBank Center’s website. Cirque du Soleil Quidam is an all-ages event.
JEN KORTE & THE LOSS, FRIDAY NOVEMBER 9
