Ski Town Breakdown with Ghostland Observatory
March 21, 2020 @ 4:30 pmFREE
Spring skiing conditions are always a reason to celebrate, but a free concert in the base area turns the weekend into an even better party!
Cruise down to the base on Saturday, March 21st for live tunes, cold drinks, and good vibes at the Skitown Breakdown – a FREE spring concert – featuring Ghostland Observatory. Ghostland Observatory’s entire approach to music – sonically, aesthetically, conceptually – is essentially a melding of the two distinctly different personalities of its two members, Thomas Ross Turner and Aaron Behrens. Behrens and Turner formed Ghostland Observatory in Austin in 2003 and haven’t looked back since. They now sell out prominent venues across the country, have played at Lollapalooza, Bonaroo, Coachella and the Austin City Limits music festival, which they headlined, and continue to play at various music festivals and venues around the globe to an ever increasing fan base, thanks to their now-famous live shows. The duo creates shimmering, pulsing pop music that is at once kinetically alive with Behrens’ striking vocals and driving guitar work but also anchored firmly by Turner’s percussive beats and Moog-generated melodies and hooks. Common descriptions include “electro-dance rock,” “synth-funk” and “Freddie Mercury-helms-Daft Punk.” Their latest offering, “Codename: Rondo”, takes a step in a new direction, both creatively and technically, while still maintaining the essential elements of their unmistakable sound: “sweaty, raw-boned, and direct from the future; committed to electronics, stuck on big beats, yet unmistakably powered by rock ‘n’ roll.”
You won’t want to miss this untamed experience in the base area at Crested Butte Mountain Resort.
