Mo Lowda & the Humble are a self-produced indie rock band hailing from Philadelphia. The band is currently finishing up their fourth LP, to be self-titled. Since releasing their debut album after graduating college in 2013, theyÕve vastly expanded the sonic exploration in their recorded material whilst developing a dialed-in, yet energetic live show through persistent touring. In turn, theyÕve built a ravenous and loyal following across the country, selling out clubs and theaters throughout the US each year. Mo LowdaÕs upcoming self-titled album is their most versatile and ambitious work yet. It visits some previously uncharted sonic territory for the band, while still providing the thoughtful, creative songwriting their fans have grown to love.
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!
