Bowie Weekend Labyrinth Screening
Friday, April 6, 7 p.m.
Gunbarrel Brewing Company

Pay some hunky-dory homage to the dearly departed Goblin King as Boulder's Gunbarrel brewery kicks off its Bowie Weekend festivities with a screening of Jim Henson's 1986 fantasy classic, Labyrinth. Among the genre's funkiest baddies, David Bowie's portrayal of the villainous, baby-snatching Goblin King is complete with iconic costume design and a couple of stone-cold jams. Watch a big-screen presentation soundtracked by a top-notch PA system while enjoying Gunbarrel's full array of tasty brews. Admission is free, but guests must register on Gunbarrel's Eventbrite page.

The Detroit Institute of Music Education's westward expansion has been a boon to the local music scene, and DIME Denver is ready to share the results with the public. One street over from the First Friday bustle of the Art District on Santa Fe, DIME is welcoming artsy onlookers to an open-house concert featuring students and local musicians. April's pop-punk infused lineup includes Tonguebite, Dust of the Decade, Baloo and more. Visit DIME Denver's Facebook events page to learn more.
