Once the sun sets on historic Harrison Avenue, the fun meters goes up on good old Lead Vegas. That’s right the neon lights shine bright on Leadville’s main drag, especially on the corner of E. 4th Street. Saturday night, The Scarlet Bar will host Backyard Berserker from the pass in Alma. So if you’re looking for some of the “biggest, tastiest jams and psychedelic sounds,” you’ll find it here starting at 10 p.m.
Pastime Bar & Café
If country rock is more your game, then head on down to Leadville’s historic Red Light District on 2nd Street. Starting at 9 p.m. award-winning singer Brian Grace will be playing his own songs from country rock, to the blues and some older country.
Sunday, December 11
If you’re looking for a great way to wind down a day on the slopes or in the downtown shops, then head over to Periodic Brewing. Antonio Lopez will be playing from 2 – 5 p.m. in the brewery. He plays the 2nd Sunday of every month. Good music + good beer = good times.
