This weekend, one of Colorado's most celebrated dance clubs will celebrate seven years of operation. In that time, Beta has won accolades both locally and nationally for its impressive roster of talent and its exceptional Funktion One sound system. The creator of that system, Tony Andrews, was in town this week to fine-tune Beta's sound. In honor of the occasion, we've dug through the Westword archives to bring you a few photos that capture the parties over the years.
The festivities kicked off last night and continue each night this weekend, culminating in a Memorial Day BBQ on Monday. Tickets for each show start at $10 and can be purchased here. The full lineup follows, along with a few of our best Beta photos.
