The Alder Street All Stars bring funky bluegrass to Agave tonight when they play a free show at Agave in Avon. They're double billed with folk rockers The Harmed Brothers.


The Harmed Brothers and Alder Street All Stars at Agave

Two great bands from Oregon share the stage at Agave in Avon tonight: The Harmed Brothers and Alder Street All Stars.

The Harmed Brothers, a trio of musicians from Cottage Grove, Ore. bring the upbeat folk-rock to the crowd while Alder Street All Stars, from Eugene, bring the quick-tempo bluegrass. Both bands will have you clapping your hands and stomping your feet to the music.

“We’re excited to have two bluegrass bands that are known to be quite different,” said Shannon Scott, manager of Agave. “I’m interested to see if The Harmed Brothers play one of their more popular tunes titled ‘Christmas Is Cancelled! Get Drunk!.’ You can’t go wrong with a song like that.”

Vermicious Knid at Loaded Joe’s

If dark and brooding is your think then you won’t want to miss local rock band Vermicious Knid at Loaded Joe’s in Avon Saturday night.

“It’s going to be an interesting show,” said Mason Miller, co-owner of Loaded Joe’s. “They’re a little bit harder … their style is kind of like Nine Inch Nails, a methodical rock. It’s not a head banger, slasher thing. It’s organized, well tuned out, deeper, heavier music.”

The free show starts at 9:30 p.m. To learn more call 970-748-7480.


DJ Logic at Bol in Vail

Witness first hand the turntable stylings of one of the biggest names on the DJ circuit Sunday: DJ Logic. Logic builds his musical foundations on jazz sounds mixed with hip hop and other odd genres like jam band, drum and bass and rock. He’s worked with Blues Traveler frontman John Popper for the John Popper Project album and collaborated with other artists like John Mayer and The Roots. Bowl a few strikes while listening to a real electronic music innovator.

Tickets are $10 and the show starts at 10 p.m. To learn more call 970-476-5300.
