Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Hollywood Farmers will play a free show at The Barkley Ballroom on Wednesday, Dec. 18. Since 2006, the Hollywood Farmers have featured a revolving door of some of the most talented new artists in organic music today and an eclectic discography, guaranteed to have something to offer every listener. A rowdy Steve Inferno, whose vision recently brought the project to Breckenridge, fronts the band. With liberal application of unique elements such as Oriole’s slap-bass and other acoustic instrumentation, Inferno has cultivated a vigorous and refreshing anti-folk sound. The free show starts at 9 p.m. Visit for more information.
