With the summer season in full swing and perfect temperatures to match, Aspen Music Festival and School brings us music to match the mood. Local's favorite, Sunday on the Lawn: bring a picnic, some wine or a stolen afternoon and enjoy world-class classical music outside the Benedict Music Tent. For an acoustic treat, tickets are available for a special listening experience, inside the tent. www.aspenmusicfestival.org for details.

At the BellyUp this week, Front Range favorites Big Head Todd and the Monsters come to town for a two-night stint. Aficionado's tip: Saturday Night features opening act Shannon McNally, acclaimed singer-songwriter and a beautiful, nomadic talent across the music scene. Shannon McNally, a great reason to get there early! Enjoy the sounds of summer in Aspen.
