It's an eclectic weekend of music in the city, filled with indie rising stars, prog-rock legends, a weed-rap all star and the return of ska! Don't miss these five shows -- the top Denver concerts this weekend.
tUnE-yArDs at Hi-Dive:
Merrill Garbus (pictured) has taken the indie world by storm with her experimental, lo-fi R&B with drum loops and a face-melting ukulele. The tUnE-yArDs live show is a must-see -- so spontaneous, other-worldly, passionate and beautiful that you won't want to go home.

7 S. Broadway; 720-570-4500
Here We Go Magic at Larimer Lounge:
Brooklyn's beloved indie rockers, Here We Go Magic plays hazy alt-country and folk that occasionally, and beautifully, sneaks into art-fuzz, noise rock.
