The Five Elements of a Charcuterie Board
3:00pm / Durango Sustainable Goods
Learn to make (and eat!) your own beautiful and delicious charcuterie board. There here's no rigid formula for assembling the perfect board, encouraging creativity and personalization. Participants will be guided by chef Laura of Laura's Artisans, through the creation of their own medium-sized boards, complete with meats, cheeses, produce, dips, and breads or crackers, all provided. We'll start by spotlighting the "lead actors," the focal point of the board, before exploring the "supporting cast" ingredients that complement and enhance the centerpiece. Attention will then shift to the "behind the scenes" elements, such as utensils needed for serving (small spoons and tongs will be available, with additional ones for purchase if desired). Finally, attendees will have the opportunity to take their crafted boards home to enjoy with family and friends, adding their personal touch to the experience. Join us!   $70.00

Hand to God
7:30pm / Durango Arts Center
In the tiny, conservative town of Cypress, Texas, the shy, mild-mannered Jason is just trying to be a good son. When he joins his mother Margery's Christian Puppet Ministry at the local church, Jason discovers a burgeoning talent for puppetry, and it seems like things, after his father's sudden death, might just turn out okay. Tyrone the puppet, though, has other plans. As the foul-mouthed, independent, and devilishly funny Tyrone grows in strength, Jason's complex relationships with the school bully, the girl-next-door, and most importantly, his mother, are thrown into upheaval. An irreverent, occasionally shocking, and perpetually hysterical romp to hell and back, Hand To God's exploration of the ideas of faith, morality, and human nature will leave you sore with laughter.

It inspires us to rise up to our day's trials and tribulations, and on a larger scale, the world's challenges. Through an unspoken sonic communion between three distinct musical identities, SunSquabi—Kevin Donohue [guitar, keys, production], Josh Fairman [bass, synth], and Chris Anderson [drums]—rouse us from inactivity and into action when we need the extra push through their signature live electronica sound. After racking up tens of millions of streams and delivering rapturous performances at legendary venues such as Red Rocks Amphitheatre, they incite personal revolution louder than ever on their third full-length album, Arise, releasing on October 26, 2022.   SunSquabi has ignited the energy of listeners everywhere since 2015. They've unveiled a string of fan favorite releases such as Odyssey [2016], Deluxe EP [2017], and Instinct [2019]. In addition to praise from 303 Magazine, JamBase, Live For Live Music, and many more, WestWord proclaimed, "The record has electrifying moments," and ThisSongIsSick raved, "SunSquabi never fails to bring the funk. Throughout the project they showcase their instrumentation highlighting shredding guitar riffs, funky basslines and crisp percussion with just the right touch of electronic production elements." Along the way, they've sold out venues coast-to-coast, capturing one of three Red Rocks gigs so far on SunSquabi (Live at Red Rocks). The guys have collaborated with String Cheese Incident, Late Night Radio, Lettuce, and GRiZ, to name a few. During 2019, the musicians began kicking around initial ideas for Arise during marathon jam sessions.
