One of the things we regrettably didn't have room for in the paper this week is the excellent week-long residency of Marty Marquis at Al's Den. Marquis, a member of Blitzen Trapper and frequent solo performer, has put together seven great-looking nights of music, including sets from his fellow Blitzen Trapper-ers and plenty more.

Marquis says, "I'm pretty stoked about the performers on tap. There's some of the usual suspects (Evan Way, Mike Coykendall, solo sets from all the Denver dudes)... I'm particularly excited to have both Heatwarmer and Thousands coming down from Seattle to play, very different bands (though one is made up of a subset of the other), both among the very best at what they do." It's an all-star lineup to see some great musicians and songwriters in a small room—and for free. The series kicks off this Sunday with Marquis joined by Eric Johnson of Fruit Bats and Zach Tillman of Pearly Gate Music.

Here's the full schedule (Marquis plays on all dates, naturally):

Sun Jan 29 Eric Johnson (Fruit Bats), Zach Tillman (Pearly Gate Music)
Mon Jan 30 Jenna Conrad, Corey Ravens and friends
Tues Jan 31 Eric Earley (Blitzen Trapper, Denver), Mike Elias (Denver)
