[R197R, Keystone]'s Friday Night Lights Concert Series, running from November to early December, replaces the annual Keystone 36 day and a half skiing and party marathon for the season. The new bash will include three weekends of night skiing, free entertainment, and stellar introductory rates for lodging to kick off the season.

It all starts Nov. 21 with the official KSMT pre-party, from 4-6 p.m. at River Run, followed by a DJ, prize giveaways, and the free concert at 8 p.m.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah performs Nov. 21, DeVotchKa Nov. 28 and Girl Talk wraps up the series Dec. 5. The free concerts will be located adjacent to Keystone's new River Run Gondola in the Hunki Dori Parking Lot located in the heart of the River Run Village.

Concert-goers will be able to purchase food at River Run restaurants. Beverage sales will be sponsored by Bud Light. It all benefits SOS Outreach, a not-for-profit organization aimed at building character and self-esteem in youth through snow sports.

Lodging specials during Friday Night Lights include rooms at the Keystone Inn starting at $89. Purchase lodging on one of the Friday Nights and get free night skiing.  Your daytime ticket is valid for night skiing until 8:30 p.m. or you can purchase a separate night pass good from 4 p.m. to close.
