It’s that time of year in Colorado when snow enthusiasts gets stoked for another season on the slopes, and one of the best ways to gear up for that fresh pow is to hit up the First Chair Festival in Denver on Oct. 7 at the Denver Performing Arts Complex & Sculpture Park. 

The all-day event (1:00 p.m. 10:00 p.m.) will feature a pre-season gear sale; film premieres from Matchstick Productions, This Is Home, The Big Picture, HG Skis and Good Company; and musical performances by Air Traffic Controller and The Moth & The Flame. Tickets are on sale now and you can find them here. Be sure to check out the preview video embedded below.

As music is our forte here at AXS, we thought we’d take a look at the bands performing at First Chair Festival. Air Traffic Controller is an indie pop outfit out of Boston. Lead vocalist and singer-songwriter Dave Munro served in the U.S. Navy and crafted many of the band’s early demos during his time as an air traffic controller. Check out our interview with Dave Munro here.

The Moth & The Flame are an alt-rock band based in Los Angeles. But originally coming from Provo, Utah the The Moth & The Flame are no strangers to ski and snowboard culture. The band has performed at the Sundance Film Festival and toured with the likes of Imagine Dragons and The Naked and Famous.

But the music is just one part of what will make this event so special. Click here to get your tickets and we'll send those prayers up for a long and snow-filled winter.
