What would your last moments look like? This upcoming exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science takes you on a tour of this and much more. Preserved by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in A.D. 79, the last actions of victims remain in form. Casts of these forms along with jewelry, coins, household items and more will be on display, sending you back to the ancient way of life. Opening on September 14, the artifacts and exhibit will be on display through January 13, 2013. Take the journey and discover the volcanic end of Pompeii.

For over 20 years now, Museo de las Americas has been connecting the Denver community with exquisite collections from the Americas. The exhibition, HILOS, will be on display starting this Thursday until January, but who wants to miss the opening reception. If you are wondering about the name, like I was myself… HILOS, are threads that are connecting the entire collection to the museum’s past exhibits. The artistry is going to be one- of- a- kind and we are fortunate enough to have it in our own backyard.

It feels like the community is now an art hot spot, which it is indeed turning out to be. To add to all the artsy events happening around town, Denver Plein Air Arts Festival is happening from now until December 31st. En plein air meaning “in the open air” in French, allows this festival to display pieces that have been created to represent the outdoors. Over 110 pieces have been chosen for this show, and to know that there were over three hundred submitted is incredible. This festival is the largest plein air event to hit this country, so who wouldn’t want to miss it!
Tis the season of Christmas. What better way to spend a night during the holiday season then seeing Irving Berlin’s, White Christmas. From the late movie, White Christmas, featuring Bing Crosby and Danny Kaye, this production brings the feature film to life. So put on those hand-made Christmas sweaters and go enjoy the holiday show.
In conjunction with Vail’s 50th winter season, this year’s Snow Daze will feature live concerts with Wilco, Michael Franti & Spearhead and The Shins.

about fun. -
fun. has not stopped living up to its name since their 2009 debut, Aim & Ignite. A year after the debut they were opening for Paramore on their headlining tour and performing at Coachella along with The Strokes and Jay-Z. Now they’ve teamed up with Janelle Monáe, a melodic collaboration on display in one of three videos for “We Are Young.” In addition, the TV series “Glee” plucked “We Are Young” off Some Nights to cover on the show, an experience that meant the world to a band that prides itself on appealing to any demographic that might feel disenfranchised or just plain odd. “None have us have ever felt like anything but outcasts our entire lives,” says Jack, “and I know that’s something that has resonated with fun. fans. They are the same people as us — kids who never fully latched onto a specific music scene because it couldn’t define them.”
about Of Monsters and Men -
Of Monsters and Men’s rapid rise transpired in just one year. Nanna, who began as the acoustic act Songbird, recruited extra hands to bolster her sound for a solo show. She liked how her vocals commingled with Raggi’s, so they started writing songs together and in 2010 morphed into Of Monsters and Men. As victors of 2010′s Músiktilraunir, the new group earned a slot on the influential Iceland Airwaves festival later that year, followed by Seattle’s radio station KEXP posting “Little Talks” from a Living Room Session filmed there, setting the telltale ripple effect in motion.
about Churchill -
In less than two years of existence as a band, Churchill has turned more heads and attracted more attention than many bands that have been working the scene for years. Not only have they built a solid fan base with their distinct acoustic indie-rock vibe, but they have found themselves on the radar of numerous media and radio outlets, not only in their hometown of Denver, but in other places as well. They’ve been named as a band to watch numerous times by Metromix and Examiner.com, and Westword Magazine listed Churchill as one of its “Moovers and Shakers” in 2009.
