Don your party hat as the Warren Station Center for the Arts at Keystone celebrates its fifth anniversary. The venue officially opened on July 29, 2010, and continues to make its mark as a Summit County hub for community events and live entertainment. On Friday, Aug. 14, one of Austin’s most promising groups, Band of Heathens, will take the stage in honor of Warren Station’s five-year run.
The concert will serve as a prelude to Keystone’s Country Western and Whiskey Roundup. Band of Heathens’ American rock ’n’ roll tied with Southern charm creates a vinyl-worthy communion of harmonies, guitar and birthday libations. Because bourbon brings out the country in us all, and five is the “magic number,” Warren Station will be pouring $5 whiskey specials.
About the band
In the course of evolving from loose assemblage to world-class rock ’n’ roll outfit, the Band of Heathens has built a potent body of recorded work that’s won the Austin, Texas, ensemble a fiercely loyal fan base and a reputation as one of its hometown’s most vital musical resources. Band of Heathens is also known as one of America’s hardest-working touring acts, while revealing a musical and lyrical depth that consistently enriches an infectious song craft.
The band is a mixture of country-tinged rock, blues and folk, with an audiophile’s aesthetic in musical gear and tones — richly earthy and heady at the same time. Every guitar, every effects pedal, every cymbal serves a purpose for each of the songs. They’re deliberate players with a deep awareness of songwriting, lyrical subtleties and feel, and demonstrate an artist’s understanding of how music can sometimes reshape itself over time.
About the venue
Though Warren Station at Keystone is still technically young, the venue is very rich in its past. Named after Chauncey Carlisle Warren, Warren Station harkens back to an important era in Keystone’s unique, Western history. Warren Station was the common name for the site hosting the famous Warren Hotel, Warren Barn and Stables and Warren Residence during the second half of the 19th century.
Warren Station served as the stage stop for travelers traversing Loveland Pass. Located “near the bottom of Loveland Pass and in the Snake River Valley,” the original Warren Station sits on the exact location of the new Warren Station, the adjacent Quaking Aspen Amphitheater and the River Run Base Area Operations Facility.
