From jam-bands to hard rock with a dash of gangsta and a splash

of punk, there’s a good mix of music coming to the Fort Collins,

Boulder and Denver areas this weekend.

Thursday night plays host to Good Charlotte with Goldfinger and

Eve 6 at the Magness Arena located on the University of Denver

campus. Good Charlotte has recently been conquering the punk/pop

nation with hits such as “The Anthem” and “Lifestyles of the Rich

and the Famous.” Some may remember Eve 6 for putting their hearts

in a blender.

On Friday get ready to dance to some talented instrumentalists.

Ozomatli, an octet featuring saxophone, clarinet, trumpet and a

host of percussion comes to the Aggie theater. In Denver, Phil Lesh

& Friends are playing with Gov’t Mule at The Fillmore. Lesh is

one of the founding members of the Grateful Dead and Gov’t Mule is

a Grammy-nominated talent who played at Moby Arena last

semester.

Saturday seems like a good night to express your anger when Korn

and Limp Bizkit hit Magness Arena. Being two of the biggest names

in hard rock, these groups really know how to throw a party and get

the audience involved. They will still be performing despite the

fact that Bizkit’s lead singer Fred Durst and the band are being

sued after Durst and the band ended a set prematurely at a summer

performance in Chicago, according to the Smoking Gun Web site.

Touring in support of his most recent album “Cheers,” Eminem

cohort Obie Trice can be caught with Bubba Sparxx at the Gothic

Theatre in Denver on Sunday night. Trice’s album “Cheers” is

currently at number 32 on the Billboard Charts.

This Sunday the ten bands chosen to perform on the long-awaited

Scene Magazine Battle of the Bands will take the stage at the

Aggie. For the 12th year in a row, Michael Mockler, owner of Scene

magazine, will host this event. The bands were chosen to perform

through an application process and will be judged by Mockler along

with two DJs from 99.9 The Point. Doors open at 2 p.m. and the

event starts at 3 p.m.

Monday has a great local show and two shows outside Fort Collins

that could draw good crowds. Rusted Root, best known for their 1992

song “Send Me On My Way,” which earned the group national

recognition, will be playing at the Aggie Theatre. If you’re

interested in getting out of the Fort Monday night you can check

out rock group Maroon 5 at The Fillmore in Denver or punkesque

group Modest Mouse at the Fox Theatre in Boulder.
