Blitzen Trapper Opening Show for New Venue, Club Red
Telluride is mostly know for two things; world-class skiing and amazing live music. Summertime in Telluride boasts dozens of legendary bands and up-and-coming groups during the Telluride Bluegrass Festival, The Ride Festival, Telluride Blues & Brews Festival and more.
Although the summer is most associated with music, Telluride's numerous music venues continue to attract musicians during the winter months. With this knowledge well established, the Telluride Conference Center located in Mountain Village (just a short, beautiful and FREE gondola ride away from downtown Telluride) has launched their new intimate music lounge called Club Red.
In the Telluride Daily Planet article about the new venue, they describe the space as being lounge-type that will feature red ambient lighting, elevated seating, plush couches, VIP sections and a bar. Temporary walls will be utilized to create a smaller venue with a capacity of 450 and the hope is to create a great mid-sized facility for the region. See the entire article HERE.
Trying to decide on what to do tonight in Telluride? Blitzen Trapper is sure to please. The quintet has been performing together since 2000 and features amazing lyrics, vocals, and overall performance.
