FREE SHOW! We really appreciate the community supporting our Snowdance winter concert series, and we want to give back by giving you a free show! Super Natural, King RopesÕ fifth album, is at once their most ambitious and most intimate work, expanding the parameters of the bandÕs desert rock and ragged americana sound. It is buoyed by a directness that brings out HollierÕs most stirring songwriting to date. Hollier has a gift for writing about tragedy and pain with wry humor and conversational bluntness. Long-simmering family trauma, visions of animal reincarnation, mysterious respiratory ailments Ñ all are worthy songwriting prompts as the record vacillates from the pounding rhythms of ÒHello SunÓ and thick, stoner-rock roar of ÒDrunk DonnyÓ to the tenderness of ÒSure,Ó a sorrowful, synth-driven ode to regret, and the quietly stunning, disarmingly plainspoken ÒBreathingÓ
Gunnison Valley is also host to several beloved annual events. A classic winter event is The Alley Loop, a Nordic ski race that doubles as a costume contest. In fall, Mt. Crested Butte hosts the famous Chili and Beer Festival. Every summer in Gunnison, a crowd gathers to watch America’s fourth-oldest rodeo, Cattlemen’s Days. There are also festivals in Crested Butte that celebrate local art, music, wildflowers, and more. Attending an annual event is a good way to connect with the culture of the Gunnison Valley. You might even create a new tradition for you and your family and friends!
