(Vail, Colo.)—After a day of on-snow adventures at the first annual Winter Teva Mountain Games presented by Eddie Bauer in Vail, Colo., February 10-12, 2012, the Bud Light Mountains of Music presented by KRU 82 concerts turn up the heat in Vail with free live performances on Friday and Saturday nights starting at 7:30 p.m.â€¨â€¨
Don your fluorescent one-piece ski suit and Moon Boots to rock out with the ultimate new wave 80’s band, The Spazmatics, on Friday night. Their killer guitar riffs, hair-band vocals and radical robot dancing have become the stuff of legends in the nerd world of rock ‘n’ roll. The California-based cover band kings are through being cool and leave no one behind on their energetic bounce back in time.â€¨â€¨
On Saturday, take in the action of various Winter Teva Mountain Games events for pros and amateurs, from the Eddie Bauer Boot Run to the crowd-pleasing Teva Best Trick Bike and Thule Telemark Big Air presented by Chipotle. Then cap the day with Theophilus London’s performance at Golden Peak at 7:30 p.m.
This alternative hip-hop artist’s genre-bending approach to music-making draws from a range of styles including hip hop, soul-pop, electro and contemporary R&B. Recent live shows have garnered critical acclaim as well as an international fan base. London’s hit, “Neighbors” will be featured on the Breaking Dawn: Part 1 soundtrack, reaching an entirely new audience with his funky rhythms and new urban melodies.
Registration for competitions opens this Friday, November 18, 2011 and a full program of events is available at www.tevamountaingames.com. Admission is free to Gear Town, the Bud Light Mountains of Music presented by KRU 82 concerts and for event spectators throughout Vail.
The 2012 Winter Teva Mountain Games presented by Eddie Bauer are a project of the Vail Valley Foundation. For more information, visit www.tevamountaingames.com. Follow Teva Mountain Games on Facebook and @TevaMtnGames on Twitter.
