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

There's something about Todd Snider's rambling, incisive, irreverent lyrics that have struck a chord with a wide audience. A Portland native, Snider eventually made his way to Memphis, where he often played a bar called the Daily Planet -- hence the name of his 1994 debut full-length, Songs for the Daily Planet. For that album, Snider wrote a track called "Talkin' Seattle Grunge Rock Blues," which, fittingly, fell somewhere between folk, country and blues and punctured some of the pomposity of the music milieu of that particular era. Live, Snider is part comedic storyteller and part troubadour, and he makes no bones about his anti-establishment stance. Needless to say, the title of his latest record, Agnostic Hymns & Stoner Fables, speaks for itself.

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?
