Friday Night Music Jam at Pastime . . with Rock Star?
“Friday Nights in Leadville” continues this Friday, August 8 with an open music jam at The Pastime Saloon, 120 W. 2nd Street. There was a good showing of local musicians who showed up for the last one, so hopes are high for a bigger turnout, especially with all of the extra folks in town for the race.
And rumor has it, that there’s a high profile rock musician in this year’s Leadville Trail 100 Mountain Bike Race on Saturday. Could he make an appearance at the Pastime Saloon this Friday for a little down home music jam? Show up and find out!
Leadville Community Movie Night Continues Friday
Movies in Ice Palace Park continues this Friday, August 8 with the cycling- themed classic, “Breaking Away”
This 1979 American coming of age, comedy-drama film follows a group of four male teenagers in Bloomington, Indiana, who have recently graduated from high school. One of the main and most memorable characters, Dave, is obsessed with competitive bicycle racing, and Italian racers in particular, because he recently won a Masi bicycle. His down-to-earth father, Ray, a former stonecutter who now operates his own used car business (sometimes unethically), is puzzled and exasperated by his son’s love of Italian music and culture, which Dave associates with cycling.
The show starts at dusk, which is generally about 8 p.m. this time of year. The movie is FREE. Ice Palace Park is located north of the Mining Museum (E. 10th Street Entrance). Although please note that if the movie is rained out, it will be moved up to the Colorado Mountain College gym – seems to be lots of rain on Friday nights this summer – but it’s still a great time and it’s FREE!
This series of movies is funded entirely with private donations from the community. Here’s a full line-up of this summer’s movies, as well as some information about how you can become a sponsor of this great community event: INFO.
