It’s a big month for music out here in the Southwest. It’s the start of summer and it’s about that time of year for long weekends and day trips to see your favorite bands.

This upcoming month, the region has no shortage of great performances to watch. You’ll want to keep an eye on Santa Fe, Albuquerque, and Durango for tickets to all kinds of upcoming shows, from country to metal.

In Albuquerque, we’ve got big performers like Brad Paisley and Lord Huron coming in hot this month. In Santa Fe, we’ve got acts like Clozee and Wild Belle coming through Meow Wolf. And last, but certainly not least, in Durango we’re going to see John Denver covers at the Community Concert Hall and PJ Moon and The Swappers at Animas City Theatre.

Buckle up, kids. The summer is off to a good start.
