When Friday finally comes around, most of us are ready to kick off the weekend by kicking back. Let the food be served, drinks be poured, and the music play. The Clock Tower Collective hosts live music every Friday through September 14, when bands set up on the patio to perform for families and friends. For those music lovers who have an early bedtime, Salto Coffee Works has become their Friday night destination.
Renegade Brewing Company partners with Salto for a Tap Takeover this Friday, August 10. Patrons get $4 pints (5-9pm), a free pint glass, and fun swag. Only seven years old, Renegade made a name for itself in the Arts District of Denver and kept their original cozy taproom open on 9th and Santa Fe. Their large production facility down the street makes beer that they coin as “offensively delicious” – because each brew is packed with flavor and offbeat attitude. Get ready to try all the beers coming outr way — 5:00 Afternoon Ale, Free to Roam American Pale Ale, Redacted Rye IPA, and Summer Tan Double Tangerine IPA.
For entertainment, the J.W. Schuller Trio combines alternative rock with a smidgen of grunge and folk. The lyrics and stories are part of J.W.’s act, but his bandmates fill out the music flavor. Witty, catchy, and diverse, the songs will drive home with you and take you through some unexpected turns. J.W. is joined by Nederland locals Jens Larsen on drums and Phil Chappell on bass. With the weather cooperating, this trio will be belting out tunes under the Clock Tower.
Wrapping up the Friday Night Patio Music Series at Salto are these performers (always amusing you from 6 to 8pm):
* Aug 17 Sarah Banker & Friends (soulful folk, Ned style)
* Aug 24 Danny Shafer (catch him here or at NedFest)
