2/16: Happy Fat Tuesday!

new-eoto_epk-300x210Anywhere you go tonight there’s going to be a big party, but that goes double for Vail where Bridge Street in the Village hosts CarniVail. Aside from a float parade and a free pass to drink in the streets, there is a free Frogs Gone Fishin’ concert. Afterwards, you can stay in Vail for EOTO at Samana or head to Avon for one of Stereo Assassins’ last shows before several of their members head out on tour with the aforementioned FGF. The Assassins will be as funky as ever in what has become one of the best local’s nights in Colorado.

What EOTO, comprised of the rhythm section from String Cheese Incident, achieves on stage is nothing short of astounding. Performed with all of the bells and whistles of a traditional electronic artist plus the addition of live drums, vocals, bass and guitar, the duo creates each and every bass ridden noise right before your eyes -without the addition of a single pre-recorded track. Known for their 100% live improvised performance, EOTO is breaking ground into a new sub culture of music while standing against some of the nations best live DJ’s in the country

If you’re in Breck, celebrate Fat Tuesday with UV Hippo who is playing at Three20South. This radiating river cow has been known to blend strong songs and tight licks with improvisation to help find an original sound where their progressive aspirations meet their audience‘s thirst for funk. Some say it’s rock. Some say it’s more like jazz. Still others report electronica, reggae and even bluegrass emanating from the massive orifice of this unpredictable menace. One thing is for sure with multiple live recordings, two full length albums “Background Music” and the acclaimed recent release “Songs for the Reaper” (called …”a classic”… by Music Review and WYCE radio) this six headed beast has become a phenomenon in the Mid West music scene. With their thirst for exploration and desire to connect with the listener, Ultraviolet Hippopotamus leaves audiences shakin’ their booties and wanting more.
