Also this weekend, the first free Bud Light Hi-Fi Concert of the season features Jamestown Revival at 6:30 p.m. Saturday in the upper Gondola Plaza at the base of Aspen Mountain, followed by a fireworks show. This Texas-bred/Los Angeles-based self-described “back-porch folk-rock” duo formed in 2011 and takes inspiration from the likes of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Willie Nelson, the Everly Brothers, Guy Clark and John Prine. Ajax Tavern will have a beer garden with $4 Bud and Bud Light specials throughout the event.
