The ten best concerts in Denver this weekend

7. RON MILES TRIO @ DAZZLE | FRI & SAT, 2/15-2/16
Local trumpeter Ron Miles and former Denver native Bill Frisell have performed and recorded together on a number of occasions, but they've only teamed up with drummer Brian Blade a handful of times, including to record on Miles' latest disc, Quiver. One of the reasons this trio works so well is that its members share certain sensibilities, and here, their lyrical playing is beautifully understated. Their previous outings at Dazzle have been damn near magical.

6. WARHAWK @ 3 KINGS TAVERN | FRI, 2/15/13
You could be excused for expecting an outfit named Warhawk to be a metal band. But while these guys clearly share influences with many metal merchants -- you'll hear a bit of Black Sabbath's edgy darkness and more than a dash of Pentagram's gritty boogie -- they sound more like a long-lost hard-rock band that successfully made the transition to punk, then moved on to something else. It's possible that they cut their teeth learning Thin Lizzy songs or interpreting choice cuts from the Cult's Electric: Singer/guitarist Alex Eschen, after all, has a vibrant, soulful voice not unlike that of Ian Astbury.
