Nothing shatters a case of the Mondays like some Cannibal Corpse, due tonight at Summit Music Hall as part of the Summer Slaughter tour.

There's some stellar music on tap this week to look forward to no matter your flavor. The week kicks off with an absolute bang this afternoon at the Summit Music Hall with Cannibal Corpse, which headlines the Summer Slaughter tour with Between the Buried & Me, Job for a Cowboy, Exhumed, Goatwhore and others. And there's plenty more goodness in store, including Refused, which checks into the Ogden on Wednesday with the Bronx and more. Page down to see our picks for the five best concerts in Colorado this week.

05. CROSBY STILL & NASH @ RED ROCKS | TUES, 8/21
Seeing Crosby, Stills & Nash is a good way to knock a few legends off of your concert bucket list at once. The group, pared down on this tour to just David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash (Neil Young is now touring with Crazy Horse), churned out a string of influential cuts over the years, beginning with 1969's "Marrakesh Express." As this trio of baby-boomer strummers age and mellow with their audience, their songs sound more like sturdy lullabies than folk-rock landmarks. The harmonies are still here in spades, and you can hear where many of today's acts got their marching orders. CSN also finds time to spotlight its members' solo work just in case you were wishing and hoping to hear "Love the One You're With."
