TWO TIMES THE MUSIC AT MOTHERLOADED TAVERN
The Motherloaded Tavern in Breckenridge is hosting Trevor G. Potter on Friday, Oct. 2 at 5 p.m. Potter grew up in southwestern Ohio, but his travels have taken him to many a destination. Having lived and worked in Michigan, Hawaii, Wyoming, Colorado and New Mexico, he has seen his fair share of the road. After finishing college, he left for the mountains of Wyoming and then went onto Colorado where he worked as a brewmaster, a ranch worker, a radio programmer and personality and a professional musician. He also spent time putting his education in anthropology to use as a seasonal park ranger in Chaco Canyon, New Mexico. Then at 10 p.m. on both Friday and Saturday, Oct. 3, Stoney Live takes the stage. From Stillwater, Oklahoma, Justin Stone rocks red-dirt music like no other. Covering everything from country music to solid rock hits of the ’80s and ’90s, Stoney Live brings people to their feet and causes spontaneous dancing on the tables. The music starts at 4 p.m., and there’s no cover. For more information, call (970) 453-2572 or visit http://www.motherloadedtavern.com.
