Weekend's best live bets: the Fray, the Lumineers, Leftover Salmon, Drake and more

Leftover Salmon (due this Sunday in the middle of 7th and 8th street on Sante Fe between 1 and 6 p.m) has graced the the bluegrass scene with their talents for 22 years and counting. With the passing of Mark Vann, the band hasn't produced an album in eight years. The new addition of Andy Thron, carried over from Emmitt-Nershi Band, sparked a new interest in touring and inspiration is in a steady flow among the members. The group's new album, Aquatic Hitchhikers, drops May 22, but the band couldn't resist to take over the streets for a little while to show Denver that its still got it.
DRAKE @ COMFORT DENTAL AMPHITHEATER
The ladies love Drake -- and it's not hard to see why. The Frank Sinatra of hip-hop, as he's been called, Drake is classy, elegant and can rap his face off to almost any melody. The Toronto native took the hip-hop scene by storm with his catchy lyrics, emotive production and high-profile features when he came onto the scene with his first project, So Far Gone. Since then, he's amassed quite a repertoire of hits, settling in with Lil Wayne's Young Money camp. His latest effort, Take Care, is chock-full of summer anthems and has been hailed as one of the year's best albums. Simply put, he's the man to watch.
