Support Colorado's best up-and-coming artists at this triple-venue, 51-band, multi-genre musical extravaganza. Quixote's True Blue hosts bands such as fusion group the Jive Tribe on Friday and Saturday, and Owsley's Golden Road and Sancho's Boulder Arrow split hosting duties on Sunday, when you can expect to see funk outfit Technicolor Tone Factory and bluegrass-Americana hybrid band Caribou Mountain Collective. Stay refreshed with beer by Oskar Blues Brewery and try your luck entering snowboard giveaways by Never Summer—although the sweetest part will be telling your friends you saw Rastasaurus before the Denver-based reggae group got famous. Fri 6 p.m.
