The open arms of Red Rocks wait to embrace me as one of their own

Well kids, in just a bit here I’ll be heading out the door to the superb natural wonder of Red Rocks for the fabulousness of the first Monolith Festival, all day today and tomorrow. It’s a first for such a massive music festival here in Colorado, and it’s also the maiden voyage of this blogger to the natural stone arena, if you can believe it.

I’ll be interviewing Black Rebel Motorcycle Club this afternoon, and by Sunday I’ll try to have rocked my socks to the sounds of Cake, Kings of Leon, Spoon, The Broken West, The Flaming Lips, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, The Decemberists, Ghostland Observatory, Art Brut, Brian Jonestown Massacre, Earl Greyhound, Matt & Kim, Meese, Rocky Votolato, Born In The Flood, and Gregory Alan Isakov. At least.

I might not survive. But I will enjoy the effort and experience.
Stay tuned.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
