The Thing is BACK at Crested Butte Public House. If you missed their epic show in August now is your chance to see them again! The Thing is a four piece rock band out of Brooklyn, New York. Composed of Jack Bradley (guitar), Michael Carter (guitar), Lucas Ebeling (drums) and frontman Zane Acord (vocals, bass). Their debut album “Here’s The Thing” is releasing April 14th which will be celebrated with a release show in Brooklyn NY at Baby’s Alright supported by Mike Sabbath and the Moongirls. The band has a healthy amount of touring on the horizon in 2024 and will be playing these new songs in cities throughout the eastern half of the country!
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!
