Fri 1/29: There’s nothing shaking on Shakedown Street?

Jan 29, 2010 by

It’s tribute night in Eagle County! Between Vail and Avon, fans of the Grateful Dead and AC/DC can both rejoice as Shakedown Street and Hell’s Belles both have shows.

Shakedown’s shows (2 shows, Fri and Sat) are at Sandbar and they are recreating Europe 72, which means that you’re guranteed such favorites as China>Rider and Sugar Mags. I assume that they’ll play the One More Saturday Night at tomorrow’s show, but you never can tell these things. Call first, but I’d bet that Sandbar will let anyone with a rainbow wig willing to hit themselves in the face with an ice cream cone in for free.

And over at Agave, Hell’s Belles are world-famous and ready to rock! They are the premier all-female AC/DC tribute act, blowing all comers away.  Playing ALL AC/DC, ALL the time, ALL over the globe, spanning all the pure rock brilliance of AC/DC’s career (from “High Voltage” to “Back in Black” and beyond),   HELL’S BELLES do justice to the Aussie legends with patented HELL’S BELLES devotion, precision and fury.  Endorsed by Angus Young, himself (Blender Magazine, 2003), HELL’S BELLES are the closest one can get without actually moving to Australia and joining AC/DC’s road crew.

Also, playing tonight, at Three20South, is Nederland band Moutain Standard Time. MST is a pure mountain folkin’ freakshow and Colorado kind jams are comprised of the finest Slamgrazz Funk- we’re talking dirty minor funk mashed head on into rocking grassy originals.  Opening for MST is Montana Slim String Band,hailing from San Fran and considered some real up and comers on the “bluegrass circuit.

And if you’re in the mood for some DJ sets, head to Samana where the boys from Burningman, DJs Blick, Hal and Adamross will be serving up an eclectic night of music.
