Hot Buttered Rum will play a free Valentine’s Day concert inside the Collective in Base Village on Thursday from 7:30 to 10 p.m., East West announced Feb. 12. The show will take place on the main level of the community-use building. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Known for its high-energy performances, the California-born jamgrass band intermixes string music, folk, bluegrass, rock and country.

Widely considered a souped-up left-coast string band, Hot Buttered Rum blends bluegrass, folk, jazz and soul sounds.

Base Village curator Sara Halferty said those involved in revitalizing Base Village, primarily East West, the town of Snowmass and Aspen Skiing Co., are “seeing our vision of the Collective coming to fruition as a wonderful gathering place” for the community.

“Our goal is to continue adding vitality to Base Village,” Halferty wrote via email.

The Collective event calendar spans through the end of March. Halferty noted she also is currently working on summer programming.

“We’re excited to host one of the premier acoustic bands in the nation in our backyard,” Josh Behrman with Mountain Groove Productions, the local company that booked the show, said in a statement. “Plus, it’s a unique way to spend Valentine’s Day with friends, family and all those you love, at a free concert dancing the night away in Snowmass.”

Parking is free in the Snowmass Base Village parking lot after 4 p.m. Buses from Aspen and the Intercept Lot to and from Snowmass Village also run regularly. To view bus schedules, visit http://www.snow
