Mile Highlights: This week's concert news, local radio playlists and top album sales
Here's what's good in the Mile High City this week: In October, St. Vincent is due at the Boulder Theater, followed by DeVotchKa who also appear there later in the month, as well as the Ogden, and Why? at the Gothic Theater. On local radio, Bop Skizzum, Big Gigantic and Planes Mistaken for Stars got some spins. Meanwhile, at our local record stores, Rose Hill Drive topped the charts at Twist & Shout and Albums on the Hill, while Incubus knocked Tech N9NE out of the top spot at Independent and the Dwarves was the top seller at Wax Trax. Click through for a full rundown.
We're blessed to be living in the best city in America.
