The days are long, the temperature is warming, sort of and the 2012/13 ski season is wrapping up. But before you put your skis away and get ready to bust out the trail running shoes or the mountain bike just know that there is still five plus weeks of skiing left, which also means five weeks of live music at the Sitzmark. Looking at the events calendar on thesitzmark.com the final five concerts are lined up to be some the most energetic shows yet.
Starting with Michal Menert on March 29 & 30. If you’ve never heard of Michal Menert maybe you’ve heard of Colorado based Pretty Lights. Menert is a founding member of the Electronic Dance Music band which has turned itself into a record label producing an entirely new genre of music.
