Bozeman's favorite hay maze returns this September 28th! The Bozeman Maze enters their eighth year of providing adventure for the Gallatin Valley. The maze will run weekends through October, so make sure you and your family make it! Last year was a 3500-straw bale tractor, I wonder what this year will be!
80's Halloween Dance Party at the Realto - Featuring New Wave Time Trippers
At a small venue in San Bernardino, California in 1985, The New Wave Time Trippers mysteriously disappeared into a time tunnel. They return this October to the Realto in Bozeman for an 80's-themed dance party!
Fascination with the band's promising career and disappearance fueled one of the most enduring legacies in music history. Where did they go? When will they return?
In recent years, many sightings of the band have been reported. From corporate events, to high-profile weddings and concert venues, The New Wave Time Trippers appear to be emerging from the soup of spacetime to "rock the casbah" with new wave favorites and near-lost alternative gems.
As a side-effect of their time-tunneling, the band's songs are often jumbled into mash-ups with other musical genres, and mysteriously synced to the original MTV music videos, resulting in a totally immersive, interactive tour de force of all the hits you love to remember, and a few that you'll hate you forgot.
