Music in Our Hills


The beautiful spring weather continues, the birds are singing throughout the streets and this May in Aspen is full of music-making - and listening - opportunities. Monday nights bring Open Mic Night at the Red Onion, starting around 9p, an event that's quickly become a local favorite and a hub for discovering new talent here at home.

Around the corner at Victoria's Espresso Bar, The Cajon Brothers play every Tuesday and Thursday, from 4-7p, to complement the special du jour, Curry by Candlelight, from 5-close.
