Hiya, Denver. I hope you’ve been staying cool this week. We’ll be in for another hot weekend, but with all the fun stuff going on, hopefully you’ll barely notice.

The Underground Music Showcase may have been canceled, but The Underground Music Something is still on. On Saturday, catch live-stream performances from your favorite Colorado bands. With raffles, music video premieres, deliverable booze and all proceeds supporting Colorado Music Relief Fund, this year’s UMS will bring fun to your living room.

On Sunday, join the Clyfford Still Museum to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Catch special events for all ages at the museum or virtually. Plus, with a SCFD free admission day, you can enjoy the museum and save money.

Happy weekend, Denver. Have a good one.
