If you are not familiar with this site, each week I take a look at events and happenings in The Valley and choose three things that look adventurous from Aspen down to Glenwood Springs. Here are my picks of the week: Seth Glier @ Wheeler Opera House, Basalt's new "The Temporary" and Carbondale's First Friday, Dia De Los Muertos.
Aspen: Seth Glier @ Wheeler Opera House | Saturday, November 4, 2017 @ 6:30 PM
Wheeler Opera House:
Despite his relatively young age, recording artist Seth Glier (pronounced Gleer) is a seasoned troubadour. A singer-songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist who averages over 250 live performances annually, Seth has gone from opening act to headlining his own shows and playing major festivals. He’s shared the stage with artists as diverse as James Taylor, Ani DiFranco, Edwin McCain, Martin Sexton, Emmylou Harris and Ryan Adams, and has quickly become known for his passionate live sets and powerful command of both piano and guitar.
No stranger to Aspen audiences, Glier has performed at the Wheeler multiple times before, including a guest performance with “American Idol” favorite Crystal Bowersox last year. Glier’s latest album, “Birds,” was released on August 25, 2017.
Cost: $25.00 or Pick 3 for $60.00

Basalt: Honky Tonkin’ With Casey James prestwood and the Burning Angels @ The Temporary | Friday, November 3, 2017 @ 8 - 10 PM
Get on yer dancin boots and head on over to The Temporary to enjoy some honky tonk with Casey James prestwood and the Burning Angels.
If the late night scene on Broadway Street in Nashville, Tennessee could talk, they'd sing you a Casey James Prestwood tune. Drenched in the honest twang that made Gram Parsons and Hank Williams household names, the classic crooner's carefree vocals and careful guitar playing feel more like country than a worn-in pair of cowboy boots.
The band was nominated as the Best Honky Tonk Group in the 2015 Ameripolitan Music Awards. Their new album, Born To Late, was recently released - head on over and boogie!
Doors open at 7, show starts at 8 PM.

About The Temporary:
The Arts Campus at Willits (TACAW) is a 501c3 nonprofit entity whose mission is to further define the cultural identity of the Roaring Fork Valley by presenting performing, cinematic and culinary arts events. Currently, TACAW presents events at their interim home, The Temporary, in Willits. A permanent facility for the arts will be built in the coming years. The cultural acts presented by the organization are the culmination of decades of work to bring performing arts to the area.
When the Willits development of Basalt was conceived in the late 1990s, a multidisciplinary arts center that would benefit the community was included as part of the larger vision for the site. A parcel at the end of Market Street was set aside for the future construction of the center. This parcel was recently leased to TACAW for 99 years so they can begin to realize the promised center. After a long wait, the Arts Campus at Willits is finally here.
TACAW is a place for creative expression and community engagement. Collaborations with local nonprofits in which artistic programming is used to highlight their work are planned. Robust educational programming will ensure that students have the opportunity to find their own voice through the arts. These initiatives, coupled with compelling programming, will help TACAW create a community where the arts are celebrated and integrated into daily life.
