The ten best concerts this weekend: 12/7-12/9

1. NOFX @ FILLMORE | FRI, 12/7/12
NOFX was started in Los Angeles in 1983 by Michael "Fat Mike" Burkett and Eric Melvin. The band was born of the same West Coast scene that produced some of the most important punk bands of all time, from Black Flag and the Circle Jerks to the Minutemen and the Descendents. Although the sound that NOFX helped pioneer was more pop-oriented, the band certainly didn't lose any of the sharp, irreverent sense of humor that permeated the music of many of those legendary L.A. hardcore bands. Decidedly independent, NOFX has never signed to a major label, unlike many of its peers, and has succeeded on its own terms, releasing albums through Burkett's Fat Wreck Chords imprint. The band's catchy songs and juvenile but smartly iconoclastic lyrics have been an inspiration for a generation of punk musicians, who have helped carry on not just the sound, but the cultural and political foundations of punk to the mainstream without selling out.

I know there is a lot of music in Denver every weekend, but EOTO is playing this weekend, and they did not make this list. I'm really starting to doubt Westwords' opinion on music. This has happened several time in the past summer, Y U NO LIKE GOOD MUSIC?
