Looking for a more intimate viewing experience? Join us for the TGR WhiSKI Series at TACAW in Basalt on Saturday, Oct. 14, featuring a screening of “Legend Has It” along with a Tincup Whiskey tasting, athlete Q&A, YETI x TGR Rambler, and more. Click here for more WhiSKI Series details.
Ski lore is riddled with stories, sometimes of unknown origin, describing plausible but extraordinary past events. Often shared on chairlifts, the skintrack, or over a beer, these legendary tales, whether it be mythical storm cycles, heroic feats, or whispers of fantastical terrain, all contribute to and shape our present experience. For 28 years, Teton Gravity Research has been traveling the globe with the best athletes to the most incredible locations, often based on this fabled history to uncover the experience … and sometimes creating legends of our own along the way
Death of the Pugilist, Friday, 8 p.m., TACAW
What is a pugilist? A pugilist is a boxer.
What is Death of the Pugilist?
A short story by American novelist Daniel Mason, set in early 19th century England, where, rising from a childhood of rough dockside brawls, a young bare-knuckle fighter faces off against a legendary behemoth.
In a performance that is the very essence of chamber music, this quintet sets Mason’s story to music, spanning J.S. Bach to Philip Glass, to blues and Irish traditional tunes, in a way that transcends each individual element and becomes its own masterpiece.
Nothing about this production follows any preconceptions. It’s a brilliant experimental ensemble piece of talent and split-second timing that throws open the door for an original experience of narrative, sound, silence, and suspense.
Spirit of Agave, Sunday 3-6 p.m., W Aspen
Join 39 Degrees at W Aspen for the Second Annual Spirit of Agave. Enjoy a vibrant Agave Showcase featuring a variety of tequila tastings, creative cocktail samplings, and light bites. Chances to win a stay at W Aspen, local ski gear + more!
Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Raizado 2023, The Latinx House Festival, an event dedicated to honoring and uplifting the achievements of the Latino community.
Must be 21+ to enter.
Twisted Pine, Saturday, 8 p.m., Steve’s Guitars, Carbondale
Boston/Toronto’s Twisted Pine (alum of Telluride and RockyGrass festivals) is coming to Carbondale
“The soundscape of their full-length sophomore release has all the sass of zero-gravity pop; the grooves of 2 a.m. funk jams; the astral flute and shoobedoos of ’70s radio.”
Twisted Pine is Kathleen Parks (Newburgh, NY) on fiddle and lead vox; Dan Bui (Houston) on mandolin; Chris Sartori (Concord, MA) on bass; and Twisted Pine’s newest addition, Anh Phung (Chilliwack, BC) on flute. Everybody sings.
Sopris Theatre Company and CMC present ‘Natural Shocks,’ Friday and Saturday, 7 p.m., The New Space Theatre, 3000 CR 114, Glenwood Springs
A play described as a one-woman tour-de-force by Lauren Gunderson — America’s most-produced playwright — will kick off the Sopris Theatre Company’s season on Friday on Colorado Mountain College’s Spring Valley campus outside Glenwood Springs.
“Natural Shocks” is described on her website as “a 60-minute, one-woman tour-de-force play that bursts to life when we meet a woman waiting out an imminent tornado in her basement. Angela … overflows with quirks, stories, and a final secret that puts the reality of guns in America in your very lap.”
The intense, single-act play is meant for mature audiences.
