Upcoming Events


Moonlight Music Series:
Red Moon Rounder

Friday, November 16.
Doors 7:30, Concert 8:00 pm.

Hailing from Colorado Springs, Red Moon Rounder has a sound that combines influences from folk, bluegrass, and blues. Since forming in Fall 2017, the four-piece has quickly established themselves in the southern Colorado music scene, having played many local venues including Springs Beerfest, The FIBArk festival in Salida and even opening for Great American Taxi at Ivywild school. The recent release of their self-titled debut EP showcases the band’s dynamic range, from catchy upbeat folk tunes such as ‘Take Me Home’ to a slow, mellow indie rock jam ‘Don’t Cry For Me’.
Tickets: $15/general admission, $12/members, students w/ ID.

Join us in our Clay Studio for a Holiday Themed Paint Your Own Pottery event. Choose from a selection of blank pottery and our instructor will be there to guide you through the painting process. This would make for a great holiday gift, or family outing. Pieces will be fired in our kiln, and available for pick up one week later. No need to pre-register, just show up and only pay for the piece you choose to paint ($5 – $50). Great for all ages!

Gunnison Country Times Presents:
The Black Lillies

Wednesday, December 5.
Doors 7:30, Concert 8:00 pm.

The Black Lillies are a band for the ages: rich, rootsy tunes performed with as much heart as technical virtuosity. If you ask them, they’ll tell you they play “Tennessee music” – combining strains of wampy Memphis soul and blues with Nashville’s classic country and East Tennessee’s traditional Appalachian style – while Rolling Stone describes it as “country music with a soul-rock infusion, supported by bandleader Cruz Contreras’ smart songwriting and tight musicianship.” Either way, it’s music that stirs your soul, touches your heart and makes you want to dance. Presented by the Gunnison Country Times. Concert held in the GAC Black Box Theatre. Tickets: $20/advance, $25 at the door.
