VAIL, Colo. – Aug 24, 2011 – Dance the night away with a high-energy performance from the Boulder Acoustic Society, set to play Vail’s original mountaintop Friday Afternoon Club (FAC) Aug. 26 from 5-9 p.m. at Eagle’s Nest. The crowd-captivating band is made up of young musicians ready to take audiences to the edge of American roots music. The Boulder Acoustic Society performs with a distinct indie rock edge and brilliantly fuses the sounds of Americana, gospel and blues music.
Festivities begin at 5 p.m. every Friday throughout the summer on Talon’s Deck. Guests and locals alike can kick off the weekend with free live music and activities, food and drink specials, and more all while enjoying amazing sunsets and the best views in the valley.
All performances are free and the Eagle Bahn Gondola is free to valid pass holders and children ages four and under. Children ages 5-12 years old also ride free when accompanied by a paid adult (limit three children per paid adult). After 4 p.m. lift tickets can be purchased for $15, which includes a $10 credit voucher valid for the purchase of on-mountain food and beverage at Talon’s Deck Grill and Bistro Fourteen, or Adventure Ridge activities. Or, grab a complimentary shuttle to Game Creek and use the voucher towards sunset appetizers and drinks on Game Creek Restaurant’s deck overlooking theVailValley. The last ride up the Eagle Bahn Gondola during evening operations is at 9 p.m.
The final FAC of the summer will take place on Sept. 2 with live music from Frogs Gone Fishin’.
