Learn how Mark Roeder made his award-winning film “Fire Rip” at a FREE workshop at the Historic Elitch Theater on Saturday, June 23, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The landmark theater suffered heavy wind damage several months ago, resulting in the cancellation of most programs, so this is one of the few opportunities these to visit and support this Denver treasure. The workshop is geared for ages 12 and older. 4309 W. 44th Ave., Denver.

Libraries can teach you the basics (and not so basic) about computers for FREE. Jefferson County Public Library is another system that hosts a number of classes.

Here’s a link to their current schedule. There are even special interest classes such as how to sell your stuff online. All classes are FREE, but you do need to register by calling 303-235-5275.
If you’re looking to hit a high-note this summer, we’ve created a Mile High Summer Concerts Guide. Because we’re “cheapskates”, we’re not covering any of the biggies at major venues, like the Pepsi Center or Red Rocks (who can pay those prices?) — just the local shows in the park or as part of a festival/fair. Luckily, the Front Range is jam-packed with many summer concerts — many of them FREE… our favorite kind! To ensure you don’t miss out on any live music, we’ve created this helpful guide sorted by day of the week. Clicking on a link will take you to our event listing for more details, including who’s performing, showtime, location, any restrictions (what you can and can’t bring) and other notable information. If we’ve missed any in your part of town, be sure to drop us a note. Let the music play!
