Lady Gaga went high-concept on her last album and found mostly apathy among her desensitized fan base. But! The concerts have always been the best part -- last time around she gave birth to herself onstage and that was literally her entrance. So her upcoming show at the Pepsi Center should be a spectacle worthy of the ticket price.

There are, of course, more new shows on the docket, including the return of everyone's favorite hand-signal purveyor, Phish, and an impressive Summer Jam lineup. The rest of the concert calendar updates follow.

Meet Alterity, Eva Claire and the Pigz, three of Denver's most interesting high school bands

Alterity_web.jpg
Alterity
The 3rd Annual Bringing Back the Arts music competition is this Sunday, March 16, at the Bluebird Theater. Admission is free. The competition is part of First Lady of Denver Mary Louise Lee's Bringing Back the Arts initiative, designed to bring greater attention to local artists and to encourage the creative endeavors of Denver's youth.

It features ten high school bands -- finalists among the many that submitted songs to a panel of talent buyers and musicians. The finalists are Alterity, Coasta the Messenger, Mia B, The Social System, Lutes and Shatters, Abraham Lincoln High School Choir, Eva Claire, Reborn, Picture Perfit Quintet and The Pigz. They represent a broad spectrum of musical genres and will compete for three cash prizes.

We had a chance to speak with three of the finalists about their music, where each has played beyond anything like a school talent contest and their inspirations. If the level of sincerity, care for craft and sense of humor we encountered is any indication, Denver's next generation of musicians is already giving us something worth seeking out.

Look, he's probably going to throw wine at you.
Chris Thile has decided he's bored of not selling thousands of tickets at a time, so Nickel Creek is back, and they're coming to Denver. Rod Stewart and Santana are also into selling thousands of tickets, so they'll be coming through as well. Incidentally, Santana has never meet a collaboration he didn't say yes to. He and Slash should do something. Maybe they could trade hats.

Keep reading to see what other shows are on sale, what songs were played on local radio this past week, and what's selling at local record stores.
