Sat 1/30: DJ Yoda and a whole bunch of local flavor

Jan 30, 2010 by

Colorado is a mecca for music for two reasons. First off, it’s a place where the best national bands like to come  and play to a great crowd and second, the state cultivates some amazing homegrown talent. Tonight, some of that homegrown talent is on display at Three20South in Breckenridge and Ghost Ranch Saloon in Steamboat.

At Ghost Ranch, Eight piece funk/jazz/rock band Filthy Children deliver nutritious grooves. Reminiscent of such groove giants as Soulive, Greyboy Allstars, John Scofield, and Deep Banana Blackout, Filthy Children deliver action-packed funk that’s sure to move your booty.

And if you’re into reggae, Three20South hosts Dubskin, a 5 piece Roots/Dub Reggae band from Ft. Collins, CO. Sitting in with Dubskin tonight is Cory from Pretty Lights. Formed in 2006, Dubskin has really broken out in the last year, touring the country and sharing the stage with such notables as   Burning Spear, Israel Vibrations, Barington Levy, Morgan Heritage, The Itals, Midnite, Groundation, Mad Professor, Anthony B and Collie Buddz.

Now to the headline name of the night… DJ Yoda is at Samana in Vail tonight. Yoda is one of Britain’s most admired, original club DJs and an AV pioneer who is constantly pushing the possibilities of audio-visual manipulation. Encapsulating the very essence of good times, DJ Yoda has transformed clubbing as we know it, throwing down styles as diverse as Hip-Hop, Funk, Baltimore Club, Drum n Bass and even Country music, all cut-up with a awe-inspiring selection of film, TV show and You Tube visuals that elevate his sets to the uniquely sublime.

Oh! And don’t forget… Shakedown is playing their second show at Sandbar in Vail tonight.
