Trampled By Turtles announces two-night stand at the Ogden Theatre

The first concert announcements of 2013 are beginning to trickle in — a notoriously slow time in the Rocky Mountain region wherein drivers of lurching buses and ominous white vans face a legitimate fear of Colorado’s slippery mountain passes.

Luckily, a few notable acts brave the elements in the January-February valley before the market picks back up in late March after the South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. One such band in early 2013 will be the Minnesota-based, Colorado-adored Trampled By Turtles, which announced a slew of new dates Tuesday morning.

TBT will set up shop for two nights at the Ogden Theatre Jan. 10-11 before heading west to the Belly Up in Aspen on Jan. 12, according to the band’s publicist.

The winter tour finds the band still on the road in support of its 2012 release “Stars and Satellites.” TBT last played Colorado with a memorable set at the 2012 RockyGrass Festival, one of the long weekend’s strongest performances.

Tickets for the Ogden dates, $27.50 per show, go on sale 10 a.m. Saturday through axs.com.
