Pennywise will play during Aspen X Games
December 31, 2008
ASPEN ” Aspen will host back-to-back evening concerts at the base of Aspen Mountain during the ESPN Winter X Games in January, the Aspen Skiing Co. announced Wednesday.
The Flobots will give a free performance Friday, Jan. 23, at 5:30 p.m. Pennywise will play the following night at another free show at 5:30 p.m. Both performances will be at the gondola plaza area near the Ajax Tavern.
The Flobots are Denver natives with an alternative rock and rap sound. The Skico labeled Pennywise “American punk rock legends.”
The entertainment strategy during the X Games has been in flux the last few years. It used to include three nights of concerts in Aspen. Last year there was only one concert.
This year’s shows at the base of Aspen Mountain are part of the Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert Series the Skico has brought to town for the last several years. The Winter X Games 13 will be held Jan. 22-25.
