NEW CARBONDALE MUSIC EVENT OPENS

The new carbondale music concert is all set to entertain its followers once again by going live. The Performing Arts Center at Third Street Center Carbondale, or PAC3, joins more than 30 other nonprofits and for-profit business in the community-based facility with an eye toward sustainability.

Josh Behrman, founder and president of Mountain Groove Productions — which produces the Snowmass Chili Pepper and Brewfest, the Snowmass Culinary Arts Festivals, concerts at the Wheeler Opera House, and other events — has had the idea for for a large downvalley events space for some time.

But plans for PAC3, which is run by Behrman’s new nonprofit Music for the Mountains, emerged last year when Carbondale Council for Arts and Humanities events coordinator Amy Kimberly showed Behrman the old, dilapidated former school gymnasium being used mostly for storage space.
