Info on the Dolores River Brewery where the late night show will happen at this link:

"The Dolores River Festival is a community celebration of the Dolores River and the many ways it connects us to each other, the environment, and our resources."

An annual highlight of all river lovers and festivarians, the Dolores River Festival, brought to you by Greater Dolores Action, the Dolores Water Conservancy, and generous sponsors, will take place Saturday, June 7th at Joe Rowell Park and other locations around Dolores. Bigger and better than ever this year’s festival will feature six bands of local, regional and national repute, as well as, activities like the Fun Race, free raft rides on the Dolores River from Riverside Park to the take-out at Lost Canyon, children’s activities and guided river walks, a kayak race, the much anticipated Zuke’s River Dog Contest, and the always zany River Parade. This family oriented event features numerous vendors with food, beverages, merchandise and more. Gates open at 10:00 a.m. and admission will be $5 for 21 and over but as always free for everyone under 21. Don’t want the fun to end? This year bring your camping gear and spend the night in Joe Rowell Park, an additional $5 per person fee for camping can be paid at the Festival or campground entrance.
Superb music by national and local acts will be performing all day and into the evening on the Main Stage in Joe Rowell Park . Beer from Dolores River Brewery will be available for purchase throughout the day along with great food from various vendors. Many of the area’s not-for-profits will be at the Festival providing information and educational programs about the Dolores River watershed, recycling, energy conservation, and more. For a detailed schedule of the day’s music and other activities please visit the Dolores River Festival website, Dolores River Festival.

More about the Music...
The music begins at 10:30 a.m., so come early to enjoy a local favorite, The Galloping Gooses. This band of three covers a wide range of material on numerous instruments, with roots in country western, old time, bluegrass and folk music. Next to take the stage will be Formula 151 offering a sound unique in today's contemporary music. Formula 151 takes its listeners on a melodic and lyrical journey, incorporating dynamic arrangements, and including the resonance, passion and depth brought by the band’s cellist. The Porchlights will play next, performing original songs from any of their four primarily acoustic albums and from their fifth release titled Peace Pipe Dream, which will be complete this summer.
Next, welcome to the main stage the jazz-infused funk and groove of three of Denver's most talented musicians in the band BiggaDigga. Concentrating on original material, plus a handful of unconventional covers, BiggaDigga reaches out to groove, funk and jazz lovers, with an impressive set exploring multiple genres, textures and dynamics.
Finally, the band we’ve all been waiting for, Euforquestra, is an eclectic world-beat ensemble from Iowa City. With interests in different cultural and traditional musics from all over the globe, the band has made a mission statement out of preserving different traditions. The self-proclaimed "Afro-Caribbean-Barnyard-Funk" touches on such genres as Afrobeat, Afro-Cuban, Samba, Soca, Calypso, Funk, Reggae, and Bluegrass. Wrapping up the music scene for the night will be Fall Baby, playing a set at the Dolores River Brewery beginning at 9 pm.

Last I noticed gas was a tiny bit cheaper over here, so drive over on fumes and fill up in Dolores. Better yet, car pool and get the other folks to buy!!
Seriously the festival will be worth the trip!!
