The nonstop nature of the holiday hustle and bustle is finally winding down. If your season has been anything like mine, you've reached the tell tale breaking point. I'm not quite sure whether it's time to go into a week of hibernation to recover, or roll with the party momentum and push on till the day, so to say. Sticking to my tried and true mantra, "buy the ticket, take the ride" I'll put on my game face, and head over to the Belly Up Aspen to catch electronic DJ magic as A-Trak and Ecto Cooler take the stage.
If you're yet to catch a show at the exceptional Belly Up Aspen venue, there's no time like the present. The DJ showcase is set to electrify the crowd this Wednesday, January 4th at 9:00 pm. Let A-Trak and Ecto Cooler be the soundtrack to get 2012 started on the right foot.
The 2011/2012 season is well on its way at Aspen/Snowmass, and there are very few things in this world that get me more excited than shredding my favorite mountains.
