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

Built solely on the intricacies of a well-trained string section, Punch Brothers are equal parts bluegrass and modern classical music. Chris Thile -- known also as a member of acoustic band Nickel Creek -- leads the quintet with his gentle and powerful voice. But it's his expert mandolin playing that blends gorgeously with the fiddle, banjo, guitar and upright bass of his counterparts. Whether the band is tackling a forty-minute suite like Thile's four-part epic "The Blind Leaving the Blind" or covering an array of songs from Radiohead's deep discography, Punch Brothers' diversity is where their talent burns brightest. (In addition to this sold-out show, the Punch Brothers are also slated to perform at the Wheeler Opera House in Aspen on Saturday, December 8.)

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?
