Summit County venues are starting the party early this Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend. Here’s a quick look at some of this evening’s entertainment:
The Talking Heads tribute band, Naïve Melodies, returns to Summit County for a show at the The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco tonight. The three-piece cover band hails from Arcata, Calif. Sets weave together both old and new Talking Heads songs and feature synthesizers, three-part harmonies and dance grooves. Members include Matt Engel (lead vocals, bass, bass synth, keyboard), Harry Hulsizer (drums, percussion) and Johnny Fiya (guitar). Tickets are $10. Info: www.barkleyballroom.com
Salem, fronted by Todd Anders Johnson, brings its sound to the Gold Pan Saloon in Breckenridge tonight. Johnson, on drums, vocals and electronics, is joined by Thomas Haupt on guitar and Mark Sculco on keys. The band tours with a multimedia show with The Risan Project and features a variety of ski and snowsport video projections. Info: www.thegoldpansaloon.com
The San Francisco duo, K-Theory, touring with up-and-comer Buku, makes a stop tonight at Cecilia’s in Breckenridge, joined by local talent, Thumper. K-Theory counts 50 original productions and remixes since its 2011 debut, including tracks that broke into the Top 5 on Beatport charts. Sounds include dubstep, mid tempo, drum n’ bass and “the hardest breakbeat you will ever experience,” the group’s bio states. The duo has shared stages with Avicii, Nero, Dada Life and Feed Me, and was recently invited to play the SnowBall Music Festival. The Pittsburgh-based producer Buku is racing up charts around the world right now. His new track “Janky” was released recently on the London-based label UKF, and has been getting plays in both Diplo and Paper Diamond’s live sets. Doors open at 9 p.m. and the lineup is Thumper (10), Buku (11:15) and K-Theory (12:15). Tickets are $10 and can be purchased in advance at therebelstoke.eventbee.com. Info: www.cecilias.tv
