Winter is coming. Here's a playlist and this week's best local shows 

Winter may have taken its sweet time this year, but we're counting down the days until our first blizzard. That means soon you'll be trapped indoors with little else to do but relax with a cup of tea and a good book. Tragic, right? Good news is we've pulled together a chilled out mix of ambient and otherwise low-key tunes to match the world outside your window. If the admittedly winter-bleak Keaton Henson, Daughters and Antlers bum you out, we've made sure to add in some more upbeat tunes by the likes of Tall Heights and Of Monsters and Men. Enjoy your snow day.


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