The situation on Drake's mic stand at the Ogden a couple years ago.
Kind of a quiet week, as week's in Denver's live music scene go. There are a few good shows before the weekend, though, including Drake and Lil Wayne's co-headlining tour and Midge Ure at Soiled Dove. Rest up: The weekend's a doozy, with big shows from Rubedo, Miss America and more.

Huey Lewis and the News plays Thursday in Avon
"He's been compared to Elvis Costello, but I think Huey has a far more bitter, cynical sense of humor."

Elsewhere, the Coathangers return to Denver after a short time away, Styrofoam Sanchez plays Rhinoceropolis and, yes, Huey Lewis and the News are in Colorado. The rest of our picks follow.

Tone of Arc plays Vinyl Saturday night.
Rodrigo y Gabriela will headline Red Rocks on Sunday, but it's the undercard we're most excited for: Namely, Nathaniel Rateliff, who hasn't played his own stuff around here in a while.

We'd also like to make sure you're aware of Vail Rocks, which supports the exceedingly worthy Love Hope Strength charity. There's plenty more, including SummerGrind's skater's paradise in Englewood and an exceptionally good Folks Festival lineup at Planet Bluegrass in Lyons.
