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

2. PUBLIC ENEMY @ OGDEN THEATRE | SAT, 12/8/12
The Hip Hop Gods Classic Tourfest Revue: That's how this show is billed -- and rightly so. Besides being headlined by the inimitable, incredible rhyme animal, Public Enemy number one, this lineup is made up of a veritable murderers row of seminal MCs, including X-Clan, Monie Love, Schoolly D, Leaders of the New School and Poor Righteous Teachers' Wise Intelligent, among others. Yeah. Gods among gods. Hell, just seeing PE -- who, without question, paved the way for the hip-hop kingpins of today with its fierce brand of politically-charged rap -- would be more than enough in itself, if you ask us. But this show presents an embarrassment of riches if you're an old school hip-hop fan.

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?
