Natural Born Killers

Lots of bands have been hailed as saviors of rock and roll. While that’s hyperbolic (seriously, why is rock and roll always on the brink of a horrific death knell? Critics are a-holes), The Killers stand out among a field of rock-saving quartets. Born in the hot Vegas sun in ought-one, The Killers cut their chops before bursting onto the national scene with their 2004 release Hot Fuss. The Killers are touring on their fourth studio effort, Battle Born, arguably their best album to date. It’s a collection of stadium-blasting anthems that boast slick production and bombastic, soaring melodies. 1stBank Center, Nov. 29, 303.410.8497

Home for Holidays

Last year’s Erie Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Country Christmas Parade & Celebration was such a hit, it’s now become an annual event. Starting at 5 pm on Friday, Dec. 7, downtown Erie becomes a holiday oasis, with a living nativity scene, live choral performances, free hayrides and a full-on Parade of Lights. All kinds of craft and food vendors will be on hand while many local merchants will be open late, serving hot chocolate and holiday cheer. Get in some shopping or just come for the festive atmosphere. Eriechamber.org, 303.828.3440

Light Headed

If Erie’s too far to travel, Louisville is having their Parade of Lights on the same night, Dec. 7. Head to the heart of downtown Louisville on Main Street to enjoy the nativity scene (with real animals!) or watch the parade. And if you’re so inclined, you can even be in the parade—your float has to have lights and no Santa (there’s only one Santa in Louisville, and you don’t want to be on that naughty list). Just show up at the Tri-City Elk’s Parking lot on Parkview by 6:30 p.m. For more information, check out louisvillechamber.com or call 303.666.5747

Holiday Party

Or, you could say the heck with the parades and chilly outdoors stuff and head into Boulder. Macky Auditorium, to be specific, where the University of Colorado hosts its annual Holiday Festival, featuring festive seasonal music in a tastefully-decorated setting from the College of Music’s choirs, ensembles and myriad faculty soloists. There are multiple programs, with shows at 7:30 pm on Dec. 7 and 8, and at 4 pm on Dec. 8 and 9. Tickets start at $14. For more information, head to cupresents.org
