Catch one of Colorado's hottest new bands in Avon this week, as Skydyed plays a Friday night gig at Agave.

Winter has arrived, with snow in the air, Christmas lights sparkling and plenty of skiing and snowboarding on tap. Aside from making laps at Beaver Creek or Vail, what should you do this week? We’ve found some unusual and interesting things to keep you occupied when your early-season legs can't suffer through another run.

We all love the snow, but sometimes it’s hard to say goodbye to the wonderful green landscapes of summer. That’s OK, though, because you can keep a bit of that colorful and lush vibe going in your own home courtesy of the Vail Pubic Library’s terrarium creation class this Wednesday (November 30). With containers in a variety of shapes and sizes, you'll create a natural, beautiful and easy-to-care for terrarium, a miniature slice of summer for your window sill. Free. 5:30-6:30 p.m., Vail Public Library, 292 W Meadow Dr., Vail Village.

On Friday (December 2) Agave hosts a great show with Skydyed, Homemade Spaceship and Pandasaywhat?! This promises to be an awesome evening for music lovers, particularly if you like catching acts before they go big, because that’s about to happen to Fort Collins, Colorado-based headliner, Skydyed.

Featuring Andrew Slattery on bass synths and bass guitar, Max Doucette on guitar and keys, and Shane Eagen on drums, Skydyed integrates generations of the state’s extensive musical heritage with deep-seated ties to the electronic music scene. With roots in rock, funk and jazz, Skydyed has a unique sound that intertwines organic live drums, bass and guitar through soulful jam, hard-hitting bass and profound break-beats. You can give the latest release, Peace by Piece, a listen here. Doors at 9:30 p.m., show starts at 10 p.m., 1060 W Beaver Creek Blvd., Avon.

Bonfire Dub plays the first ever Beers of Prey craft beer festival on Friday (December 2).

Featuring ten craft breweries sampling suds from forty different taps along with food pairings, followed by a Bonfire Dub concert (where the local-fave folk/reggae rock band will release its first full-length recording since 2010), this event is a must-do for beer and live music lovers. $35 (tasting only), $40 (tasting + concert). 3-6:30 p.m beer/food tasting, 8 p.m. concert, Vilar Performing Arts Center.
