The Mile High Music Festival is coming to the Denver area this weekend in the somewhat awkwardly-named but supposedly pleasant Dick’s Sporting Goods Park out in Commerce City (incidentally, the only city in Colorado with a liquor store that sells this nectar of the gods).
I’m going to be covering the fest, and sure Tom Petty and Dave Matthews are headlining. But depending on circumstance and how the day unwinds, I am more looking forward to seeing some folks like:
Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers
Josh Ritter (!!)
The Black Crowes
I still regret missing The Roots at Red Rocks when they were here opening for Wilco, Athens’ The Whigs are supporting their excellent sophomore album Mission Control, and Josh Ritter always absolutely slays me in the best possible way (like this). Not too shabby for a weekend, close to home for once. Come on out!
