The ten best concerts in Denver this weekend

3. DORO @ MOE'S ORIGINAL BBQ | SUN, 2/17/13
Doro Pesch was the charismatic frontwoman of the '80s German metal band Warlock. With power and confidence that were rare at the time, Pesch, the first woman to front a band at the 1986 Monsters of Rock festival, possessed a stirring, sometimes animalistic wail. Warlock split in 1987, two years after releasing its final, and perhaps best album, Triumph and Agony. Since then, Pesch has embarked on a successful career making music with a band called, naturally, Doro, beginning with the 1989 release Force Majeure. Last year, Pesch and company put out Raise Your Fist. With the recent return of classic metal as a touchstone for modern bands, Doro Pesch is finally starting to get her proper due as one of the singular voices of heavy metal.

2. GALACTIC @ OGDEN THEATRE | SAT & SUN, 2/16-2/17
It's impossible to miss the influence of New Orleans in the brash, brassy sound of Galactic. Since forming in 1994, the sextet has experimented with plenty of sounds and styles, dabbling in everything from hip-hop to electronica. But the lush legacy of New Orleans's native jazz, funk, soul and R&B styles has been a constant, and the shadow of the Big Easy continues to loom large: The band's two-night stand at the Ogden comes less than a week after Mardi Gras, a tradition the band celebrates on its latest release, last year's Carnivale Electronicos. Over the years, Galactic has toured and recorded with an array of laudable acts, and this time around, the group has assembled an impressive lineup of estimable guests, including Monophonics, Latyrx, featuring Lyrics Born and Lateef the Truthspeaker, and Living Colour lead singer Corey Glover.
