With all of the controversy surrounding gun legislation in Colorado, you might be surpised to know that 40 percent of Americans own guns. Fellow gun-owner and author Dan Baum tells their story in his newest book, Gun Guys, which explores our unique American fascination with firearms and the touchy politics surrounding gun ownership. The cost of a ticket can be put toward a copy of Gun Guys on the day of the event. Mon 7:30 p.m.

Frightened Rabbit

The mother of lead vocalist Scott Hutchinson dubbed her son a “frightened rabbit” because of his chronic shyness as a child. The nickname may have stuck, but this indie rock band is far from shy. Based out of Glasglow, Scotland, the band sings their quirky—and slightly folk-sounding—songs on stages around the world. Their most recent album—Pedestrian Verse—features the quintet experimenting with minor keys. Listen for standout songs such as “the Woodpile,” and “State Hospital.” Mon 8 p.m.
