Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

The Shakin’ at the Basin May Concert Series continues Saturday, May 10, with The Congress. Evoking emotions that you thought had long passed — the feeling of your first powder run or the way you feel listening to a worn vinyl as it warmly crackles against the sound of a summer night — The Congress is naturally compared to many names and styles of years gone by. But drawing such comparisons is, in many respects, a misguided endeavor. The Congress are a natural evolution of more than 60 years of purely American music. With a spirit rooted just south of the Mason-Dixon Line, and now calling Denver their home, they’ve got enough soul and grit and have spent enough time in the woodshed and on the road to call them pretty much whatever you want. The free, family-friendly concert runs from 1 to 4 p.m. in the base area. Visit www.arapahoebasin.com for more information.
