Looks like some snow is in the forecast into next week! Let’s hope we get some accumulation out of this baby, we need it after the warm temps this past week. The Comedy Festival continues through Sunday with a good mix of music this week as well. Really a little something for everyone! Also, The US Extreme Freeskiing Championships are going on this weekend up in Crested Butte, this event is definitely worth the drive. Check out this video from last years event.

Friday, Feb. 18 – Papadosio w/DVS @ The Llama. $10 @ 10pm. These guys are from Asheville, NC and sound like an experimental, electronica-based jam band. They have been touring around the country and are heading to Peru after their Colorado shows to study under a shaman named Mancoluto. Sounds pretty heady. Check them out at The Llama tonight with opening act, DVS out of Brooklyn, NY. Papadosio.com
