Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

The Barkley Ballroom will host Whiskey Tango for a free show on Wednesday, Jan. 22. Since July 2009, the Denver-based quintet has been motivating Colorado crowds to move their feet with their high-energy shows and high-octane attitude. This bluegrass band has grass roots, and they’ve recently emerged from their basement studio with their debut album, “Groggy Mountain Mornings.” Capturing the rawness of the band, as well as their tenacious tone and attitude, this album reeks of wild west whiskey fueled thoughts and has a cornucopia of sounds that may surprise you. The show starts at 9 p.m. Visit for more information.
