Autumn is usually referred to as an offseason in Eagle County when the valley takes a collective sigh of relief after a beautiful summer full of activities.

However this offseason, it’s on at the Vilar Performing Arts Center at Beaver Creek. Their Underground Sound concert series kicks off on Sept. 27 and provides seven reasons to stick around during this time of year.

For seven weeks this event, dubbed “love for the locals,” serves up some fabulous entertainment that you may not have heard of. With the valley full of adventurous types, consider this a musical journey for the ears.

For just $100, the Underground Sound pass provides access to all seven shows from Sept. 27until Nov. 7. You also get one drink at each show. The Vilar Center has teamed up with Bonfire Brewery out of Eagle. Meiomi Wines will provide red and white wines and Jim Beam bourbon, Pinnacle vodka and Sauza tequila will be offering some fun drinks including a peach whiskey sour, raspberry lemonade and a blue margarita.

Pair the Underground Sound pass with the dining specials that happen during this time of year and date night just became affordable. The pass is also transferable, which allows you to go in on the cost with someone else. Employers, consider the Underground Sound pass as a way to reward employees and boost morale this time of year. It’s a small investment that will reap big rewards in the appreciation department.

The Vilar Performing Arts Center is just too good of a venue to pass up, especially when the shows are this affordable. Individual tickets are available as well for $24 for each concert, except for Ottmar Liebert, which is $48.
