Submitted by Chelsea Long on Mon, 03/18/2013 - 9:33am

This is the debut of a Colorado pair that makes total sense: beer and boarding. Sample unlimited brews by 22 local breweries from 2 to 5 p.m., then sit back and watch (or participate in) a rail jam featuring a 25-foot ski ramp.

Submitted by Jake Jensen on Mon, 01/14/2013 - 4:10pm

Las Vegas may be best known for its flashy casinos, but its history of producing top-caliber rock acts is equally impressive. Imagine Dragons—dubbed one of 2012’s brightest new stars by Billboard magazine—is another Sin City success story. The band's grand, electronically embellished rock show will include its hit single “It’s Time” and other tracks from its first full-length album, Night Visions. Opening acts include Australian indie-rock band Atlas Genius and California rock outfit Nico Vega. Sat 7 p.m. 

Balkan Beat Box

Submitted by Elliott Johnston on Sat, 03/16/2013 - 11:08am

There is world music that holds fast to tradition—and then there’s world music that is so energized and unique that it blurs borders. Balkan Beat Box, which broke out of New York City in 2005, fits the latter. The acclaimed electronic group is influenced by a smorgasbord of international sonic textures (Israeli, gypsy, Middle Eastern, among others) and brings the power of invention and activism to the stage. Sat 8 p.m.

Famous for his lightning-fast improvisation, no two shows are ever the same. Sat 8 p.m.
