Vail’s Samana Lounge introduces Wednesday evening tradition
Ryan Summerlin November 20, 2012
This winter Samana Lounge in Vail will host an event known as “Mo & Friends” each Wednesday night. The first Mo and Friends is slated for Wednesday night and kicks off with Raw Russ.”Mo & Friends” is a unique weekly experience brought to Samana Lounge by local DJ Mo:Rockin and Colorado based music collective Rebel Stoke. The concept is the brainchild of local promoters Morgan Menco and Austin Gavlak. Their mission is to introduce people to new music by bringing friends from the music industry to Vail. Each Wednesday will feature different artists and styles within the electronic dance music genre, along with drink specials to entice a local crowd. This event will provide an intimate setting to hear and interact with some of the best up-and-coming artists from the underground music scene. Boulder musician Raw Russ performs tonight. He is a multi-faceted artist that has been DJing for 15 years. Raw Russ brings a focused attack on hard beats and dance music and also acts as co-owner of label Elm and Oak.Some of the other artists confirmed for 2012/2013 include Supervision (of Pretty Lights Music), Posso and Proper Motion, from Boulder.
