Free Tunes!

Boulder Creek Events, the Niwot Business Association and Bank of the West bring you Rhythm on the Rails from June 11-Sept. 10, with shows every Thursday at 6 pm at Whistle Stop Park in Niwot (located at Murray Street and Second Avenue just off the Diagonal Highway). The concert series includes performers such as the Rebecca Folsom Band, Danny Shafer & The Unknown Americans, the Strolling Scones and the Erica Brown Band. 303-449-3137.

Enjoy popular numbers at Twenty Ninth Street LIVE, a free concert hosted every Saturday at the Twenty Ninth Street shopping district from June 20-Aug. 8. The mall’s main drag becomes pedestrian-only as live music plays from 6-10pm. You’re surrounded by great eateries, plus a beer garden.

For the 12th summer, the 1300 block of downtown Pearl Street is the grooviest place in town every Wednesday evening from June 10-Aug. 12. Funkiphino kicks off the free concert series Bands on the Bricks, which showcases 10 bands playing dance delights from the Beatles to ’80s to Motown. Savor the sunset to music that lasts from 7-9pm. 303-449-3774.

Round out your dancing schedule at Millennium Harvest House’s Friday Afternoon Club Rockin the Gardens. The family-friendly event fills the lavish gardens every Friday through Aug. 28, from 5:30-9:30 p.m. In addition to free music in many genres—such as contemporary country band Raising Cain, bluegrass group Blue Canyon Boys, and ’50s “doo wop” Rolling Tones—you can enjoy mechanical-bull rides, magic shows and face painting. Even your dog is welcome at the garden’s new Yappy Hour. The hotel is located at 1345 28th St. 303 443-3850.
