The five best concerts this week: Nov. 26-30
Action Bronson at the Fox Theatre and Cervantes' is one of the five best concerts this week.
Happy Monday! Another week, another great batch of shows on tap: After canceling a highly anticipated date this past spring, Action Bronson is more than making up for it with a pair of Colorado shows, one on Wednesday night at the Fox Theatre in Boulder, followed by another at Cervantes' Masterpiece Ballroom on Thursday. We've also got shows this week from Tegan and Sara (supporting the Killers at 1STBANK Center), Interpol frontman Paul Banks, Shadows Fall and more. Keep reading for a full rundown of the five best concerts this week.

- Paul Banks on the joys of getting "Logic-ed up" in his hotel room instead of liquored up
- Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria on being too blasphemous for the gospel choir his band hired
5. ASKING ALEXANDRIA @ OGDEN THEATRE | TUES, 11/27/12
Whatever questions you direct at Asking Alexandria, you can be sure the answers will be delivered in some kind of scream. The Alexandrians trade in the breakdown-heavy thrashing known as metalcore, which, true to its name, combines the excesses of both metal and hardcore into one headache-inducing brew. Asking Alexandria likes to spike its metalcore screeching with the occasional melodic moment, and spices the whole thing up with the addition of synthesizers here and there. It's been a rewarding formula for the band, whose second album, Reckless & Relentless, sold enough to debut at number nine on the Billboard 200.
