A fall preparation playlist, and all of this week's local music 


Autumn in the Pikes Peak Region comes on slow, then all at once. The highs have only just started dipping below 70 on occasion, but here in a few weeks we'll either be neck-deep in snow or running around in shorts, depending on what Colorado feels like throwing at us this season. So in order to ease the transition we've put together a playlist of Autumn tunes that will take you from the bright and sunny end of September to the thunder and sleet of October, to the oncoming gray of winter.

Meanwhile, here are some notable shows taking place across Colorado in the weeks ahead:

  • DED, Black Sheep, Sept. 24
  • Rock for Hurricane Relief featuring Demi Dimetro (of Velveteers), Summit Music Hall, Denver, Sept. 27
