Eternals Star Shares Picture of Harry Kinds’ Deleted Scene

Eternal shocked Marvel fans everywhere by the introduction Harry Styles as Eros, the beloved cosmic figure better known to the audience as Starfox. Although the character appears in a mid-credits scene – but alongside Patton Oswalt’s Pip the Troll – he was originally supposed to appear in a different scene in the film. Now fans could check out the scene in question after Eternals star Lia McHugh posted a series of pictures on her Instagram account on Sunday night.

In the first picture, McHugh can be seen alongside Richard Madden and Styles. The trio can wear the robe-like clothing that the entire group wore in the opening scene of the film. Styles, on the other hand, was nowhere to be found in this sequence. You can see the picture for yourself below.

“It’s interesting. Starfox, Eros, I like this character a lot, but he’s very problematic with release for reasons that even the She-Hulk Stuff is investigating which I find interesting,” Eternals producer Nate Moors previously told about Styles’ casting. “But when we decided to turn to Eros, the idea of ​​a man whose power lies in seduction and emotion control, that’s a pretty specific requirement for a piece of talent. And we talked about gender swapping, because really, Eros doesn’t have to be “a guy but he’s a guy but it could be anything.” It really is who is seductive just by being close to you. And that’s a pretty short list, and Admittedly, Chloé is a huge Harry Styles fan. And at first we were really like it? ‘ But I promise if you ever get the chance to meet Harry Stiles it will be true. “

“‘You just think I love this guy. I love this guy. I don’t know what it is. I love him.’ He’s funny. He’s charming. He’s nice to everyone. He’s kind of Eros, “Moore continued. “And it was an easy conversation. I think Harry Styles is at greater risk in being in this film than we are in casting Harry Styles. Because he has such a specific following and is a musician, and now he’s going to be an actor, but that’s not necessarily his core concern. And taking a flyer on this really random character he also knows is vaguely problematic, I think that was a bigger leap of faith for him. But I think the idea of ​​Eros in the MCU is so much fun. Definitely worth it. “

Eternals is out in theaters now, while Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings are streamed on Disney +.

Begyle is aware of my type | Chicago’s Artwork and Beer Scene

How come I haven’t been to Malt Row until a few months ago? I blame the huge number of breweries in town for this complete lack of knowledge, but hey, I’m not complaining.

Imperial Pajamas Coffee Stout

Strong publications mentioned my name

Begyle brows has presented some impeccable stouts lately which made me visit twice. My first visit was to try one of the Imperial pajamas variants released in March 2021. I chose the Coffee Imperial Oatmeal Stout and it’s a winner. This balanced, flavorful beer is ahead of coffee and chocolate.

In May, I participated in the launch of the Snooze Buttons in Barrel Aged 2021. There were two varieties (bourbon and rye) and of course I had to try both. These were two of the best barrel aged beers I have ever drank and I plan to make these releases a tradition.

Bourbon & Rye BA snooze button

Two outdoor seating areas

Please note that Begyle continues to follow COVID safety precautions and the rules are laid out on a sandwich board. They offer a nice patio on the sidewalk with a walk-in window to order. The brewery also has a spacious one Beer garden with umbrella tables.

So many beers to try

Aside from the dark beers, they also brew multiple IPAs, a Season, a Blonde Ale, Cider, and more. After my impressive visits, I look forward to experimenting with more of their beers. Thanks for the great introduction to Malt Row!

New band brings completely different type to Lake reside music scene

Camdenton-based Christopher Crane was looking for a side project when he founded The Astro Katz in October 2019. A regular on the live music scene at the Lake of the Ozarks, Crane says he hit the jackpot looking for members to make up the band, and with the crowd of talented musicians in the area, you don’t have to go far .

“I was in a local rock band when this band started, but I really wanted to bring something different to the Lake music scene. Something that would be really fun and positive. As a lifelong fan of rockabilly music, it was really important to me to put together a band that belonged to that genre. I admit I was concerned. I wasn’t sure if people would really like this or if we were just targeting an older audience. I felt like it was a gamble, but I had to try. ”

It worked. The Astro Katz rockabilly quartet began playing in front of crowded crowds in waterfront restaurants to bring their style of early American rock and roll to audiences of all ages.

questions and answers

What is your style of music? What would we hear if we came to one of your concerts?

The Astro Katz are primarily a rockabilly band. We’re committed to preserving music history through live performances, and we’re having a lot of fun doing it! We love honoring the biggies of the genre like Elvis Presley, Buddy Holly, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Eddie Cochran, and Gene Vincent, but we do some surfing stuff too. After all, we play a lot by the lake!

We also like to play modern rockabilly hits from the Stray Cats and also some swing numbers. We want to offer our audience something to dance to, sing along to, memories of the time and even brand new memories. This style of music is all about one word – fun (do you remember fun?). We want to give our audience a new experience by playing songs they may never have heard live before. Let’s face it, this last year has been a tough year for everyone, and great rock ‘n’ roll is really good medicine! We are proud to be a part of this recipe.

What do you all enjoy about the gig?

Performing in front of a live audience is amazing. Any musician will tell you that when the band is tight, the groove is perfect and the dance floor is full, it’s pure bliss. But we often experience something that I believe is unique, on two different fronts. The first is that older couples keep coming up to us and telling stories that a particular song we played has a special meaning to them and they haven’t heard it in decades. They listen and dance and we accompany them in this musical time machine. You can’t buy that experience. It’s just so cool.

The second is the enthusiasm of younger people, especially children. We saw so many kids jumping on the dance floor and we really had a lot of fun. I often wonder how many of these kids who had so much fun at one of our shows go home and go through their grandparents’ record collection. That puts a permanent smile on my face.

What’s your upcoming schedule?

This year is going to be an epic year for The Astro Katz. Our calendar is filling up quickly for the coming season and we look forward to seeing old friends again and making new friends. The last year has been a whirlwind. We had so much fun at Blondies (who will always have a special place in our hearts), Bulldog’s, Shady Gators, Dam Good Slice, LOTO Lounge, Papa Chubby’s and many others. We were really blessed with a warm welcome from the LOTO community. We are very happy to be part of such a lively music scene.

Artwork Basel Hong Kong and Eurovision deliver the worldwide arts scene again

With two major cultural events last weekend, the international art scene signaled that it does not intend to have Covid cancel another year.

Held May 19-23, Art Basel Hong Kong marked the return of one of the most revered art fairs in the world. The show followed Frieze New York, which happened earlier this month and was the first major art fair in New York since the pandemic began.

After a one-year hiatus, the extremely popular Eurovision Song Contest also returned to Europe. The competition took place May 18-22 and, according to the show’s organizers, was watched by nearly 200 million viewers, including a live audience of 3,500 people.

After large gatherings around the globe were canceled for more than a year, both events mark a significant step forward on the path to normalcy after the pandemic and highlight the different methods Asia and Europe are using to achieve this goal.

Art Basel Hong Kong becomes “hybrid”

With its first show in more than a year, Art Basel returned to the world stage after canceling its three annual shows last year – Hong Kong in March, its flagship show in Basel, Switzerland in June, and Miami Beach (Florida) in December.

All three events are back this year with the first Art Basel Hong Kong, which will present a “hybrid” format that allows participants to appear virtually or in person.

Art Basel Hong Kong 2021, which was relocated from March to May, made its debut in a “hybrid” trade fair format.

Private collectors from more than 30 countries and territories took part in “virtual tours” of the fair, which was held at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center. More than 100 galleries participated, with many joining through satellite booths that allowed gallery owners to interact with attendees without traveling to Hong Kong.

“After we had designed our booth plan for the fair, the gallery delivered all of the artwork to Hong Kong to be installed by the Art Basel team, as in previous years,” said Valerie Carberry, partner at Gray. Chicago, New York. “Since we couldn’t travel to Hong Kong to attend the fair ourselves, Art Basel appointed us a booth assistant who took care of the booth in our place.”

The gallery planned video meetings ahead of the show to prepare the assistant, who, according to Carberry, “was incredibly professional … we felt well represented”.

Participants could also view collections Online viewing roomsthat Art Basel launched last year. Online rooms of the canceled exhibition in Hong Kong in 2020 showed works from more than 230 galleries and, according to Art Basel, attracted around 250,000 visitors.

“We all wanted to be there in person, of course, but the ability to share real-time information with customers at your booth was as close as ever to an in-person pandemic art fair,” said Carberry.

“We all felt a bit ‘jet lagged’ after we did not travel, but it was worth telling our Hong Kong customers how much we value their business and the support of our program.”

The Eurovision Song Contest is back

The cancellation of last year’s Eurovision Song Contest, or Eurovision for short, may have resulted in this year’s competition reaching its largest audience since 2016.

In the singing competition that began in 1956, musical acts from predominantly European countries compete against each other, with 26 reaching the grand finals. The country that produces the winning act hosts the next competition.

This year, the Italian rock group Maneskin won the main prize and made sure that the competition will take place in Italy in 2022.

The show was largely a face-to-face event with most of the attendees performing live from Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The Australian Montaigne performed over a taped shot due to their inability to travel to Europe. This was a first in the show’s 65-year history.

Participants wore masks and followed social distancing mandates. According to Eurovision, the participants were subjected to regular Covid tests and isolated in their hotel rooms unless they were exercising.

The show also limited the number of live viewers present. Still, the 3,500 people who watched in person were enough to make Eurovision one of the largest live entertainment events in Europe since the beginning of the pandemic in 2021.

The annual competition, which casts a spell over Europe but is largely unknown to American audiences, is slated to launch in the US next year on NBC. According to the Eurovision website, artists from 50 states, five US territories and Washington, DC will compete in the “American Song Contest” for the title of the best original song.

What’s coming?

With the exception of Art Dubai, which began in late March 2021, most of the major international art exhibitions that were originally supposed to take place before May have been canceled. These include Frieze Los Angeles and Dutch Tefaf Maastricht, both of which were postponed before being canceled.

The Art Basel fairs in Basel and Miami Beach are back in the books, although the Switzerland show has been postponed from June to September in order to “visit as broad an international audience as possible,” according to the fair’s website.

Another top international art fair, Frieze London, is slated to return in October.

It is expected that these fairs will be very personally attended. According to Marc Spiegler, the global director of Art Basel, the digital components of Art Basel will be retained.

“We have developed a whole range of techniques and tactics for people to access a gallery program digitally,” he told the New York Times. “The pandemic has enabled us to do a better job for the collectors who cannot attend.”

The next Eurovision competition is planned for May 2022. Details have not yet been confirmed. Online speculation on dates and locations has begun.

Hong Kong is also pushing high-profile plans that align with the city’s conservative approach to curbing Covid. In line with its nickname as the “Art Capital of Asia”, the city will host a number of art festivals and exhibitions, including the contemporary art exhibition “Ink City” and the French May Arts Fest with around 80 events across the city in June.

This year, a new visual arts museum is due to open in Hong Kong’s new “T” -shaped M + building.

The Hong Kong Ballet will play Romeo + Juliet next month after the show was canceled last summer.

Hong Kong is new M + building will host one of the largest museums of contemporary visual culture in the world. The “T-shaped” museum has an area of ​​65,000 square meters, including 33 galleries, three cinemas, a research center, restaurants, a tea and coffee bar, a members’ lounge and a roof garden with a view of Victoria Harbor.

The museum is slated to open this year.

Oscars Mark Return of Stay Crimson Carpet — and Hints of L.A. Model Scene – WWD

In 2020 LA was ahead of the Oscars. Tom Ford’s star-studded runway show drew Jeff Bezos, Miley Cyrus, and Lil Nas X, fashion brand and magazine events that sprawled over days and nights with champagne and loot, and the effects of so much primping even seeped down to the packed, solid dry bar locations of the country City.

What a difference does a pandemic year make.

Nevertheless, the mostly digital award season ends on a high level Oscars Sunday with the return to a living red carpet at Union Station in LA, albeit on a much smaller scale, and a new, more cinematic show format with a theme that could change every year, like the Met Gala does. according to co-producer Steven Soderbergh. (This year’s slogan is “Bring Your Movie Love”.)

“Red carpet fashion, in my view, is still a moment of escape and dreaming, which is probably more relevant today than ever before. I say this from the perspective of a very pragmatic designer and entrepreneur, ”said Giorgio Armani, who more than any other designer was responsible for the rise of fashion on the Oscars red carpet and in 1992 put on Jodie Foster again.

“I understand a momentary lack of interest after things go virtual, but it’s going to be important again, and in fact it is already,” he said, noting how Cate Blanchett and other stars have led the charges for sustainability by wearing his clothes again on red carpets.

“Now that there are more vaccinations and we know the numbers are lower, we want glamor, excitement and joy. That’s what the Oscars are about, ”said Hollywood stylist Jessica Paster, who is attracting the nomination for Best Supporting Actress Maria Bakalova from“ Borat Subsequent Moviefilm ”.

Nominees like Bakalova and her pluses will be the only people living on the red carpet, where there will only be a handful of media outlets and no publicists, who will be reduced to dozens of people who normally number in the thousands. What will they wear

At the virtual Golden Globes in February, the director of “Nomadland”, Chloé Zhao, kept her refreshingly real based on the example of her extraordinary film and accepted her award from a distance without wearing make-up and an army green T-shirt.

But Oscar attendees are encouraged to bring the shine up.

“We strive for a fusion of inspiration and ambition, which in actual terms means that formal is totally cool when you want to go, but it’s really not casual,” the dress code was explained in a widespread email from the producers Show.

Will all of this attract viewers is a question where awards ratings are already hitting all-time lows, and this year’s nominated films, led by Mank, a particularly esoteric and little-respected bunch, especially when compared to current box office giant “Godzilla vs. Kong. “

Even so, the Oscars red carpet is still the holy grail for fashion designers and brands.

“It’s been a terrible year, I’ve had so many conversations with stylists who say, ‘If it doesn’t happen, don’t worry, no one will see it anyway,” Oscar de la Renta designer Fernando Garcia explained why The Red One Carpet is still important to him. “I don’t care. It’s more about connecting with someone who wants to support your vision as a designer. Celebrities connect people who are not celebrities with brands. That’s why I fell in love with fashion, so that I can always be inspired by it. “

Come from its 40th anniversary collection and Broadway preshow, Michael Kors also has high hopes for this year’s red carpet.

“There can never be enough awards for me.… I’m a cultural junkie,” he said, adding, “But we never show our cards. When Julia Roberts won the Oscar and wore vintage Valentino, she wore a Michael Kors dress the day before and was thrilled. When Gwyneth Paltrow won the Oscar and wore Ralph Lauren, Michael Kors fitted her into a Celine the day before and was thrilled. So I learned – until I see the body arrive, you never know. “

Smaller fashion brands are also still in the game, competing against luxury houses and jewelers, some of whom are paying $ 150,000 or more for a celebrity placement and have the funds to spend on custom designs. “It’s the worst year yet with fewer opportunities and when the pressure on designers who couldn’t sell and PRs who don’t have the same budget increases,” said a publicist, who asked for anonymity.

Another reason the 2021 Oscars are still worth it is Instagram.

With no physical red carpets going on this awards season, stylists filled the fashion void with behind-the-scenes, behind-the-scenes photo shoots for social media that were Polish at an editorial level and made a significant impact.

“Because there weren’t any traditional red carpets, talent and stylists had to direct photo shoots, and in the end you got this great content that was more thoughtful and a little more productive. These assets were incredibly valuable to brands, ”said IHPR founder Jen Lowitz, who represents jewelry brands Forevermark, Fernando Jorge and Ana Khouri in her LA showroom.

Forevermark was directed this season by Regina King, director of One Night in Miami, after years of working with her. She wore a dramatic blue, high-slit Schiaparelli gown in a shoot designed for her stylists Wayman Bannerman and Micah McDonald for the Emmys in September 2020. In February, she wore jewelry from the brand for the Golden Globes.

As fun as it was producing creative content for the home, even Hollywood picture-makers who are used to being behind the scenes miss the thrill of the red carpet. Not to mention the awards season when emerging talent like Bakalova rely on future roles and fashion opportunities.

“This is her first American film, she shot nine in Europe. She is 24 years old if this had been a normal year. When she stepped on the red carpet of the globes in Armani, everyone would have known who she was, ”said Paster. “Now it burns rather slowly.”

That other platform for fashion peacocks, Oscars after parties, won’t exist this year.

Not only have studios and talent agencies canceled their annual events, Vanity Fair also dropped its Oscar night bash on the A-list for an online interactive series that benefits COVID-19 relief that happened last week. This means that the Elton John AIDS Foundation remains the last Oscar night event – but it is still digital.

There are still a few places to see and see IRL during Oscars Week in LA as it recovered from the global hotspot for COVID-19 in December to one of the lowest fall rates in the country.

German facial doctor Barbara Sturm is hosting a four-day Anti-Inflammatory Oscars Retreat (the name is right for the time) and face masks at their spaceship-like West Hollywood Spa, which was filled with hundreds of fragrant pink roses for selfies and fresh juices on Wednesday.

“I’ve been coming here since 2003 and how I started promoting the brand was during the Oscars popups,” said Sturm. “Rosie [Huntington-Whiteley] and others posted on their Instagram, and it was the first time they performed beauty treatments on social media. That was when my brand got a big boost because people could see what we were doing. “

In the midst of a global expansion, Sturm opened the LA location on Almont Drive in November and had to close it again two weeks later due to a new blockage. “Now that we’re fully open again, it’s organic to invite everyone – and we’re fully booked,” she said. Visitors to her spa (one treatment room has a hidden VIP entrance from the alley) can try her signature SturmGlow facial or super anti-aging facial, as well as the eyebrow sculpting by Hollywood Arch Queen Anastasia.

Meanwhile, Dior Skincare’s Joanna Czech has opened a store at the Peninsula Hotel using Carey Mulligan, Maya Rudolph and others for treatments using the brand’s new eye serum.

The LA restaurant scene is also heating up again.

At Jeff Klein’s Sunset Tower, the outdoor pool deck is the new place for Hollywood regulars to hang out with aspiring TikTokers, if not the entire cast of nominated films who dined together in previous award seasons.

“I think the industry ran all of Zoom’s Oscar campaigns because the cast could sit in their panties at home,” said the former Condé Nast editor, who became Sunset Tower Maître d’Gabe Double, and admitted for having seen her share of guests sweating – the ones that say off-white.

While the restaurant was closed on Sunday evenings during the pandemic year, it will open Oscar night and book tables for several nominees. “They can wear what they want,” said Doppel, “and everyone who wins eats for free.”

Gourmet market – vendor highlight: Hugo Roasters

“Are you turning your everyday life into an act of kindness”? Yes, please! As stated on their website: In 1999, Hugo Roasters founder Claudia McMullin took a step into paradise after having been a Wall Street lawyer for decades. After the move, McMullin joined the city council and became the director of the nonprofit Friends of Animals, now Nuzzles and Co. After her second term, she found, in her own words, that her favorite coffee spot was closing. “She couldn’t have that.”

In 2015 Hugo Roasters was born after looking for the main roaster of her favorite coffee spot, named after her own rescue dog, Hugo. Having rescued dogs since her 20s, she wanted her new business to add to her mission. Right from the start, Hugo Roasters has donated 10% of its quarterly profits to the rescue of nonprofits like Nuzzles and Co., Best Friends Animal Society, and Paws for Life. In addition to the financial return program, Claudia subscribes to the local NPR channel segment “Adoptable Moment” once a week, from which Paws for Life benefits. Because of these efforts, Hugo Coffee Roasters has been instrumental in adopting nearly 200 dogs and cats over the past two years. “Hugo Coffee’s vision is to become the go-to place for animal lovers across the country,” says Claudia. “My goal is to influence animal rescue across the country. The more I sell, the more animals I save. “

Their mission is to convert you into clean fragrance oil. “It seems ridiculous for someone to breathe this,” she said.

Other popular candles include lavender and white sage, eucalyptus, lemongrass, and new ones like fresh coffee, rosemary and sage, as well as honeysuckle and jasmine (which she custom-made and kept in her line of products for another market seller, Z’s Hot Sauce). .

COVID-19 pandemic modifications the Amarillo leisure scene

During a year that COVID-19 continued to affect the Texas Panhandle as a whole, the pandemic has also affected the way arts and entertainment organizations have provided their services and events to members of the community.

Here’s a look back at how the COVID-19 pandemic affected eight of the numerous arts and entertainment organizations and venues in the region.

Amarillo Civic Center Complex

As part of the city of Amarillo, the Amarillo Civic Center Complex was initially closed for all gatherings and events in order to comply with the guidelines of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

When the city of Amarillo returned to Level Yellow on its COVID-19 status level chart, the complex has now reopened some of its parts and hosted various public events such as lunches, promotions and Amarillo Bulls hockey games.

In addition, the complex continues to serve as the home of the city of Amarillo walk-in COVID-19 vaccination clinicThousands of people have been vaccinated more than 100,000 times so far.

Amarillo small theater

The organization made history after the COVID-19 pandemic initially resulted in productions at the Amarillo Little Theater being postponed. Shooting of his production of “Anne of Green Gables” and give people the opportunity to follow production from the comfort of their homes in mid-June.

Since then, the theater has hosted numerous personal productions with COVID-19 security precautions. Allen Shankles, the organization’s executive director and artistic director, said hosting entertainment options during the pandemic is something the organization has learned over the year.

“We learned that we can implement some security protocols to make this work for our audience and volunteers,” Shankles said in a previous Globe News story. “I think we have proven that we can entertain an audience and not cause the virus to spread. But you need to strictly adhere to your protocols. ”

Opera yellow

While several productions were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Amarillo opera had the opportunity to host numerous performances last year, from the performance of Three Redneck Tenors to the performance of the “Billy Goats Gruff” outdoor opera with Texas Tech University School of Music.

Mary Jane Johnson, the general and artistic director of the Amarillo Opera, said at the time that she noticed the performance of the Three Redneck Tenors, where 200 people in masks were gathered outdoors. Johnson said there was ongoing discussion about how effective this feat is.

From February 2021, the opera will postpone its planned Moipei Triplet concert to 2022 and the performance of “Hansel and Gretel” to the beginning of October. Production of “Take Off Shoes Before You Enter” is also scheduled for April at Amarillo College.

Bryan Rushin, Emily Wallace and Amryn Cowen take a socially distant dance class at the Lone Star Ballet.  Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, certain precautionary measures had to be taken.

Lone Star Ballet

When the pandemic started, the Lone Star Ballet hosted virtual classes for its students, giving them the opportunity to continue studying at home.

Starting this summer, the company opened its studios for face-to-face classes that included many COVID-19 safety protocols, including social distancing, increased disinfection, and the absence of dancers as partners.

But even with conducting personal classes, many performances of the ballet had to be canceled, with the closure of the Amarillo Civic Center Complex, including the planned performance of “The Nutcracker”, which was postponed until mid-February but was canceled.

Lone Star Ballet is now preparing for the production of “TimeSteps: Rock of the Ages” in April from April 16 to 17 and of “Unleashed”, whose concert from the ballet’s seven studios is planned from 21 to 23 April. May.

The reveals should go on: How the Vail Valley’s leisure scene stayed vibrant throughout a pandemic

Shakedown Presents partnered with the town of Vail over the summer to offer live music in a safe outdoor setting outside of the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens. Normally the concerts would be at Shakedown Bar on Bridge Street, but with shutdown orders, there were more outdoor concerts during COVID-19. The concert pictured was in August.

In between the day-to-day, black-and-white parts of our lives, the arts are there to fill in the color. When the pandemic forced music venues and movie theaters to shut down, and wiped big gatherings off the calendar, many promoters and organizations across the country simply threw up their hands, saying protocols and the entire effort is just not worth the hassle.

Not here in Eagle County.

The Vilar Performing Arts Center at Beaver Creek was the first indoor venue in the state to reopen its doors to a live audience when the local Rocky Mountain Grateful Dead Revue performed in front of a crowd of 50 people in early June.

The outdoor venue at Avon’s Nottingham Park also was one of the first to reopen to live music. The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail made the pivot to open with movie nights on the lawn, as well as live music over the summer.

Local wedding planners changed from working on large-scale weddings to smaller, intimate gatherings with great success. Together, wedding planners in the valley launched a group chat immediately when the pandemic hit to help keep each other up to date on protocols, venue changes as well as possible clients to pick up.

Bravo! Vail, Vail Jazz and other regular favorites around the valley all jumped on the online opportunities. The Vail Jazz Interludes series brought performances online where episodes are still available to watch.

Restaurants were quick to offer carry out, and even create new trends, such as Sweet Basil and Mountain Standard’s finish-at-home meals. Grand Avenue Grill was quick to set up a drive-through window (and also walk-through). And both Vail and Beaver Creek opened public consumption areas around the villages.

Alpine Arts Center went virtual and was teaching art across the world online.

The Riverwalk Theater in Edwards adapted to allow moviegoers to bring in their own films to watch as a small group, as well as expanded its food menu to offer more robust items. The local theater, “on the brink of shutting down,“ has been able to stay open.

Across the valley, there was no giving up. The shows had to go on, and thankfully in this valley, they did — and are looking to open up more this summer with the GoPro Mountain Games, Vail Craft Beer Classic, Gypsum Daze and other events starting to fill out the schedule.

The Vilar Performing Arts Center at Beaver Creek was the first indoor venue in the state to welcome back a live audience after the pandemic shutdown. The Vilar Center, like other venues and businesses in the valley, have been in constant communication with health officials since the pandemic started to be able to stay open.

While people in the food, arts and entertainment industry realize that hospital workers and other front-line workers should deserve the praise for helping get us through the COVID-19 pandemic, it has still been a very tough year for restaurants, venues, musicians and other businesses that make this valley special.

But it’s worth it.

“The arts are working to heal people, that is emphasized more so than ever right now,” said Owen Hutchinson, executive director of the Vilar Center at Beaver Creek. “We need the arts to be an integral part of our valley’s and our community’s healing process, and it feels natural for the arts to serve the community in that way.”

“It gives perspective,” said Tom Boyd, director of the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail. “What is art, what is gathering? Why are concerts popular? Why does everyone like to come to Bravo! Vail and Dance Festival and Hot Summer Nights and our concerts, and it’s because that’s where community is made, that’s where our bonds are strengthened as a community.”

Boyd added that with more and more people out and about exploring parts of Vail they might not have before, places like The Amp, Betty Ford Alpine Gardens and others benefited from increased foot traffic.

Collaboration is key in Eagle County during COVID-19, as local nonprofits, businesses and health professionals have maintained constant communication to be able to open doors and offer things to do outside of our homes this past year, and leading into the summer.

When it all shut down

As businesses and venues, and the ski resorts, shut down in March of 2020, it was a difficult task for local venues like the Vilar Center and Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater to shut down — emails had to go out, artists had to be contacted, the venue itself had to be closed. But as hard as it was to shut down, it was even harder to start opening back up.

For musical venues, musicians and others in the industry, it was constant planning, replanning and then planning again from scratch trying to stay on top of the most current health protocols. Some outdoor venues took advantage of the squared-seating arrangements, allowing for social distancing with each group in their own square.

There were also financial questions around opening things back up, whether it was viable or even sustainable. Many local businesses and venues were of the mindset of the Vail Valley Foundation and its venues, the amphitheater in Vail and Vilar Center at Beaver Creek.

“We took a huge risk, and we basically jumped off a cliff into the void thinking this is the right thing to do, and we’ll figure out the money later, and we have,” Boyd said.

State and federal funding also helped some Eagle County arts and entertainment businesses. The Vail Valley Foundation, Cascade Village Theatre Inc., Valley Events Inc. and The Art Base received state relief totaling $242,000 in February. The Turn up the Amp fundraising effort raised $60,000 for the amphitheater in Vail as well.

At the Alpine Arts Center, the lockdown came right after the local business celebrated its 10-year anniversary.

“It was a rollercoaster of ups and downs that month, but we worked quickly to transition our programs and our art store for the shutdown,” owner Lauren Merrill said via email. “We created to-go kits and virtual classes so our community had a creative outlet while we were closed.”

The Vilar Center hosts a variety of performances throughout a given year, but March is usually one of the busiest months.

“I remember that week so clearly because we were in the height of our busy March season at the VPAC,” Hutchinson recalls. “We had everything from dance companies to rock ‘n’ roll concerts happening that week.”

Blue Moose Pizza in Beaver Creek was one of many restaurants that made adjustments on the fly.

“Well, we found out the exact same time the rest of our valley did,” owner Brian Nolan said in an email about the shutdown. “Initially the first few days it was a little crazy as there is no Game Book for this thing.”

When reopening, all venues, restaurants and other entertainment businesses put a priority on safety — and still do.

Alpine Arts Center first started to-go art kits in March of 2020, an early adaptation to pandemic life.
Special to the Daily

As a pioneer in the state for venues reopening, the Vilar Center’s protocols include limited capacity in its already-intimate 535-seat theater, a temperature check at the door as well as other guidelines to follow.

Dean Davis has been working at the Vilar Center for almost 15 years and is in charge of the cleaning. He also was the one to figure out the seating arrangements for the venue with COVID-19 distancing protocols. Davis worked on that while at home in quarantine, since he had all of the building drawings on his computer at home. He started drawing circles working off the 6 feet social distancing standard. He made charts for groups of one, two and four to be prepared for whatever protocols came.

Davis is also looking into upgrading the venue’s ventilator system, a requirement of the 5 Star state program. He’d been looking into it for years, but the financial restraints hindered his hope. But with COVID-19 and a push for public health, he has an extra card in his hand when pushing for the new ventilators.

“I like to call myself one of the shoemaker’s elves — one of the people in the background, no one sees what we do,” Davis said.

Davis himself sprays down the venue with a new and improved electro-sprayer backpack — with a Ghostbusters sticker stuck on to complete the image. He goes through the auditorium, lobby area, bathrooms and anywhere someone might touch — walking backwards to avoid the spray.

“We’re all very aware of the fact that if someone gets sick, we have to shut down,” Davis said of attendees or the Vilar Center’s limited staff. “And we really don’t want to do that.”

Kristen Ruthemeyer Hammer also helped the Vilar Center navigate returning to live performances. She has been with the Vilar Center for almost four years and is the production manager — hiring and managing crews, coordinating equipment in the building, in charge of the spending budget and anything regarding production.

In addition to all she does behind the scenes, Ruthemeyer Hammer is also a backup violinist just in case a musician gets stuck in a snowstorm and can’t make it to town.

Classic Albums Live was doing a Beatles show at the Vilar Center, and one of the two violinists didn’t make it out from Denver because of a snowstorm.

“They were freaking out about this violinist, so I said, ‘Well, how hard is the music?’ They just kind of looked at me and I told them I haven’t practiced in a while but I play the violin. If the music’s not hard I could probably do it.”

They gave her the music, she practiced for a couple of hours that day and then went on stage that night.

“That’s the only time that’s happened,” she said with a laugh. “I’m definitely more comfortable backstage and I definitely find my complicated production management job to be much easier than sitting on stage with a violin.”

Ruthemeyer Hammer, like many others in the valley, was diligent and used her attention to detail to help stay on top of reopening in a safe manner — and staying open.

In Vail, the town partnered with musicians and venues like Vail Jazz, Shakedown Bar and others to provide live music outdoors over the summer.

Both Beaver Creek Village and the villages in Vail expanded outdoor seating during the pandemic as well as more areas for public consumption of alcohol.

Pushing forward

With some restaurants, entertainment groups, movie theaters and other local business shutting down due to COVID-19, it hasn’t been all good news. However, many local entertainment businesses not only survived but thrived through the past year.

One of the positives for musicians and music venues over the past year was the focus on local and regional. Bands like The Runaway Grooms and other small-town bands with big sounds took to the premier stages like the Vilar Center and the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail.

“One of the things that I love so much about music is that it gets to take us away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life,” Tierro Lee said during a performing at the Vilar Center in July. “Tonight, I really hope we’re all going to go on a journey together and kind of escape these COVID times for a minute and remember that there are good times to come.”

The Vilar Center’s Ghost Light Series was a popular hit.

“There are all sorts of traditions and superstitions in theater, such as not bringing mirrors on stage, no whistling from back stage, saying ‘break a leg’ and never mentioning The Scottish Play,” said Duncan Horner, the former executive director of theVilar Center. “Another is to make sure to turn on an exposed incandescent bulb center stage known as ‘the ghost light’ before turning off other lights and vacating the theater. I like to think of it as providing an eternal flame that remains on between shows, providing a baseline of energy that allows us to look forward to the next wave of entertainment.”

The Runaway Grooms, who put on a drive-by concert series across the valley in September, are one of many bands banking up some new music while the world was shut down.

“We’re just kind of preparing for when the world opens back up to have a good arsenal of new music that captures the five-piece evolution of the band,” Grooms member Zach Gilliam said.

Instead of giving up when faced with COVID-19 protocols, local venues like the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail got creative and diligent to continue to offer entertainment throughout the pandemic.
Special to the Daily

Another trend that appears to be sticking is the livestream of performances online, opening musicians and venues up to a wider, more global audience. Also, with people eagerly looking for things to do, and safely, new businesses have hit the scene, like Wood & Steel Axe Company offering mobile axe-throwing events as well as at its location in Vail.

Also, another collaborative effort, Magic of Lights organizers are planning a return next winter, with more time to plan and prepare the lights spectacle.

“It was crazy popular, people loved it,” Boyd said. “And we had to put the whole thing together in two months.”

Magic of Lights came together thanks to the town of Vail, Vail Valley Foundation Events and Fun Guys Events.

“Basically, we just figured it out,” Boyd said.

Which seems to be a common thread in this valley of resiliency. As that fateful mid-March day was known as the day the music died elsewhere around the country, and the world, Eagle County refused to let the music die and will push forward — as a community.

cutNscratch: Roanoke music scene remembers Danny Counts expertise, humor | Leisure

Swing joined Counts in the late 1970s as part of Forbert’s band to go on tour following the success of Forbert’s single “Romeo’s Tune”. Watch them with Forbert on the BBC2 show “The Old Gray Whistle Test” below

Swing said Thursday that he and Counts teamed up through B. Kliban Comics, Frank Zappa, Captain Beefheart. The Shaggs, Lord Buckley and other art out of the norm. They treated listening as an art.

“We got into really old, obscure, crazy, almost twisted things. … The more we heard The Shaggs, the more we realized that as bad as it was, absolutely bad. “

But on stage, their music and friendship were deeply rooted.

“He was a stand-up guy,” said Swing. “He was as honest as the day was long. Good times, bad times, he was there. “

He added: “The level of Danny, his excellent musicality, his humility and who he was as a person were inextricably linked.”

Counts’ always flowing bass lines, which only needed the bare essentials – delivered with archetypal, electric sound – also brought him the Bromberg appearance. This band nicknamed him “The Fuzzy Pumper” after the Play Doh toy that radiated “hair” made of clay.
