Friday, Dec. 19
Yamn, a rock-infused electronica quartet from Denver, will perform Friday, Dec. 19, at The Barkley Ballroom in Frisco. It’s the band’s first performance at the venue. Known for its lively powerhouse rock concerts and light show, Yamn’s roots began in Breckenridge in 2007. The band is coming off a sold-out show at the Gold Pan Saloon in Breckenridge last week, so with this performance being a free show, Yamn encourages fans to get to the venue early before it reaches capacity. Doors open at 9 p.m., and the 21-and-older show will start at 10 p.m. Visit http://www.barkleyballroom.com for more information.
