It is shaping up to a sunny, warm weekend in Telluride with highs in the upper 30’s through Sunday. Hopefully some snow will come into the area early in the week, we definitely need it! There are some great music choices on Friday as well as Saturday and 40 Ounces to Freedom on Wednesday at the Moon. Should be a fun week in town, do your snow dances!
Friday, Jan. 27 – Reggae with Walter St. Clair and Bassie @ The Llama. 4-6pm. FREE. Every Friday @ The Llama for apres. This guy has been performing since the early 90’s and plays some smooth roots reggae. You can check him out and hear some of his music online at USAReggae.com
Friday, Jan. 27 – Mountain Standard Time @ Llama. 9pm. $7. Nederland-based bluegrass band who have played all over the country including festivals such as the Wakarusa Music Festival, 10,000 Lakes Festival, Summer Camp Music Festival, and our own Telluride Bluegrass Festival.

Friday, Jan. 27 – Funkdafari @ The Moon. 9pm. FREE. Local band playing a fusion of funk, reggae, and soul. Awesome show!
Friday, Jan. 27 – Thursday, Feb. 3 – The Fighter @ The Nugget all week. I saw this film and it is AMAZING! One of the best films of the year for sure. Check it out this week, 7:30 nightly. NuggetTheatre.com
Saturday, Jan. 28 – Ski Safety Day. From 11am-3pm on the slopes of Telluride. Starts at the base of lift 4 in Mountain Village. Seems weird that safety day isn’t from 9am-4pm, that’s just me though. I will act accordingly. A local Telluridian was quoted saying, “you can never have enough safety meetings.” I agree fully.
Saturday, Jan.29 – Chris Fish Birthday Party with The Filthy Children @ The Llama. 9pm. FREE. I don’t really know much about this band, but I like their name. I guess they are a funk/rock/jazz group out of Denver. They seem pretty tight with a sweet horn section, always a plus for live music. FilthyChildren.com
Sunday, Jan. 30 – Latin Night @ The Steaming Bean. $6 Pisco Sours. “Get drunk and dance.” If you have not had a pisco sour, come have a few and enjoy your Sunday evening. Salud!
Monday, Jan. 31 – Ski Into History with Johnnie Stevens. Every Monday @ 10am. Meet at the ski valet @ The Peaks resort. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the resort and local history. Ski around with lifetime local and one of the people responsible with the formation of the ski resort here in Telluride. Reserve your spot with the Telluride Historical Museum by calling 970.728.3344 extension 2. TellurideMuseum.org
Wednesday, Feb. 2 – 40 Ounces to Freedom @ The Moon. 9pm. San Diego based Sublime cover band comes back to Telluride. Check out their MySpace page for more info.
