The Belly Up has had a steady lineup of budget-friendly and high-quality shows this off-season.
So far this month, the Galena Street club has hosted seven no-cover shows, with three more scheduled for this week. With the series of free music acts at Belly Up, there’s no reason to slack on your nightlife in Aspen this off-season.
On Sunday, Oct. 20 Boulder-based dance-acoustic fusion band The Magic Beans comes to the club. Over the last two years, the Beans have quickly ascended the ranks of Colorado’s homegrown music scene. Their wide-ranging live shows swerve between folk, funk, rock and electronica — often in the same composition — along with improvisation.
On Monday, Oct. 21, Minneapolis-based Jon Wayne & The Pain bring their self-styled “reggae-tronic dub” sound to the venue. Over three albums and a tireless touring schedule, the trio has carved out a unique niche that blends the sounds of jam bands and electronic dance music with reggae and dub sounds.
On Tuesday, Oct. 22, New York buzz band Basic Vacation make their Aspen debut. More on them in this week’s Music Beat column (p. 8).
Along with the free shows, the club is keeping things affordable with a return show by the popular Sublime tribute act 40 Oz. to Freedom (Friday, Oct. 18, $15), moombahton DJ Bro Safari (Saturday, Oct. 16, $15/$20), rock/electronic fusion outfit Zoogma (Wednesday, Oct. 23, $10) and space rockers Future Rock (Thursday, Oct. 24, $5/$8).
