This weekend in Denver, check out the Rocky Mountain Record Show, Westword Tacolandia, and Ed Sheeran.

๐Ÿ’ฟ 1. Rocky Mountain Record Show

Add more vinyl to your music collection at the Rocky Mountain Record Show.

  • There will be more than 150,000 records to choose from, music from a live vinyl DJ, food trucks, an open bar, a poster show, and music vendors.

Why it matters: Events like this support Colorado music dealers and other local media collectors.

What they're saying: "Some of our dealers specialize in rare and exotic records; many will be in the four-figure price range," RMRS co-founder Kobi Waldfogel told Axios.

Of note: No worries if you don't own a vinyl record player. There will be CDs, cassette tapes, posters, music DVDs, and memorabilia to purchase.

When: 9am (early entry), 11amโ€“4pm (regular entry) Saturday, and 10amโ€“3pm Sunday.

Location: The Brighton

Cost: $32 for Saturday early entry, $12 for Saturday regular entry, free Sunday.
