Nice looking forecast through the weekend, hopefully the snow comes in heavy! Two GREAT bands are playing this week, Leftover Salmon tonight at the Conference Center and the North Mississippi Allstars on Monday at The Moon. These should be two of the best shows of the season. For electro fans, Michal Menert and Octopus Nebula should both blow your minds. And don’t forget about Telluride’s annual Gay Ski Week all week, more details below…
Friday, Feb. 25 – Michal Menert @ The Llama. $12 @ 10pm. Polish born musician/DJ/producer who grew up in Colorado with Derek Vincent Smith of Pretty Lights. “Together they played in several bands and challenged and inspired each other as they developed their own unique production styles.” “His sound combines obscure vintage samples from both Eastern European and Western vinyl with rich analog synthesis and organic hard hitting beats.” MichalMenertMusic.com
Friday, Feb. 25 – Leftover Salmon @ The Telluride Conference Center. $30 day of show @ 7pm. Opening band- Elephant Revival. Boulder, Colorado based Jam Band returns to Telluride playing the conference center in Mountain Village. They play what they describe as “Polyethnic Cajun Slamgrass”, a blend of bluegrass, rock, country, and Cajun/Zydeco. Awesome show to come to town, this one will probably sell out, plan accordingly.

Saturday, Feb. 26 – Octopus Nebula @ The Llama. $5 @ 10pm. Colorado psychedelic/electro/ambient/acid jazz band comes to Telluride. Check them out at the Llama tomorrow night, looks like they have a pretty crazy light show. OctopusNebula.com

Monday, Feb. 28 – North Mississippi Allstars @ The Moon. 9pm. Presale- $31 cash/$32.50 credit @ The Wizard.
