Music and More: Boulder’s Weekend Happenings
The sun is shining and the weekend is just around the corner! Beautiful weather calls for a stroll down The Boulder Farmers’ Market. The weekly market has opened for the 2015 season, and will be waiting for you on Arapahoe Avenue every Saturday morning. Savor the locally grown produce and indulge in fresh cheeses and salsas; one of my favorite Boulder outdoor pastimes.
Boulder has another great weekend of music in store for all of us to enjoy. It’s tribute weekend at The Fox Theatre. Both the Friday and Sunday shows pay homage to music legends of various genres. Friday night’s show goes by the name Felebration, celebrating the Afrobeat star Fela Kuti. Felebration’s hot lineup will feature a “14 piece wall of sound,” with an array of musicians from the Colorado music scene. Artists will include members of The Motet, Euforquestra and Atomga showing off their inner funk. Sticking with the tribute theme, Sunday’s show at The Fox features Zoso – The Ultimate Led Zeppelin Experience. This cover band has been rockin’ the tunes of the iconic group since ’95, perfecting the appearance and playing styles of their idols for a decade.
The Boulder Theater will feature a two night run with the electronic duo, BoomBox. The pair have just released a new album after a four year hiatus called Filling In The Color. Following the two nights of BoomBox, the Boulder Theater will be presenting a special event Sunday night. The theater will host a free premiere party for the 5th season of the hit HBO series, Game of Thrones.
An alternative for musical entertainment this weekend is a performance by The University of Colorado Dance team at The Dairy Center for the Arts. The dance team will present their Spring Dance Showcase, featuring a variety of dance styles from contemporary to tap. Get out there and enjoy the warm weather and entertainment Boulder has to offer this weekend!
