The BLT Duet sets up for a Tuesday, July 19 gig at the 10th Mountain Whiskey and Spirit Company’s tasting room in Vail Village for a 4 PM show. Featuring local jazz legend Tony G along with Brian Loftus, the Duet will be playing on assorted  Saturdays and Tuesdays through July.  You can get a taste of Tony's classy style here, and although these gigs are free, you may want to remember to bring your wallet as the whiskies and ryes behind the bar are a tempting and will cost you. Info

There's more great free music on tap later in the week, with a wonderful evening  of chamber music at a Thursday, July 21 evening courtesy of the Bravo! Vail Music Festival. On this night, The Festival hosts a free 7:30 show at the Brush Creek Pavilion in Eagle. With Beethoven's Razumovsky on tap, the performance features the Dover String Quartet. Info

Not everyone is into music and for some of the younger citizens of our valley 7:30 pm is well past their bedtime. That’s what makes the 10 am kickoff of Superhero Day perfect for the tiny – yet super – kids on the block. This fun and free event is hosted by the Bookworm in Edwards on Saturday, July 23. Dress up as your favorite superhero and sit in for a superhero story time, with crafts and other activities. Info

Superheroes are great, but for the older crowd, the alt-heroes of cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show are on display at the Basalt Summer Cinema located in Lions Park. In the 6 pm Saturday, July 23 screening of the cult classic sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O'Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named "Rocky." Info
