SNOW THA PRODUCT @ ROXY THEATRE | SAT, 2/16
It may at first seem easy to dismiss Snow Tha Product as another Iggy Azalea or Kreayshawn-level gimmick because of her gender and unconventional appearance, but it gets harder and harder the more you listen to her. Make no mistake, Snow can ride a beat and she can rhyme, and she can rhyme fast, and, frankly, she's more intimidating than a lot of these so-called hard rappers nowadays.

9. BIG BAND BOOGIE @ MERCURY CAFE | SAT. 2/16
Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts is helping keep jazz alive by trying to grow new audiences, as well as train young jazz musicians. The organization's annual Big Band Boogie Bash is an effort to breathe new life into big band music. This year's event features more than 130 musicians performing in six college bands and three high school groups, including ensembles from Metro State University, Colorado State University, CCJA, University of Northern Colorado, DU, Lamont School of Music, Kent Denver, CU Boulder and Fairview High School.

8. JAMES MCMURTRY @ L2 ARTS & CULTURE CTR. | SAT, 2/16/13
The sons of famous fathers start out several rungs higher on life's ladder than do the rest of us, but this head start doesn't guarantee superstardom, as the career of James McMurtry demonstrates. The singer-songwriter's 1989 debut, Too Long in the Wasteland, appeared on a major label thanks largely to the notoriety of his sire, novelist Larry McMurtry, who won the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for the epic Western Lonesome Dove. James's disc deservedly earned positive notices, as did its two successors, yet mediocre sales convinced his label to drop him circa the mid-'90s. Nevertheless, he pushed forward on Sugar Hill, a sizable indie, and a pair of even smaller imprints, Compadre and Lightning Rod Records.
