So who’s coming to Colorado to Monolith festivate with me?

monolithblogpromo

The lineup announcements started yesterday for the 3rd annual Monolith Festival, coming to Red Rocks September 12th and 13th. This year, the acts are being released incrementally through Facebook updates and Tweets (we are SO hip to the jive here in the Colorado) — whetting our appetites a little at a time, rather than unleashing all the artists on the world at once.

Since yesterday morning, they have announced Starfucker (such a fun show at SXSW), Girl Talk, Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, Denver’s Speakeasy Tiger, Method Man & Redman, The Pains of Being Pure At Heart, and Health. More announcements will follow in the days to come, and by mid-June we’ll know exactly what choices we will have come September.

I’m in! Come play.

Pop Song – Starfucker
Play Your Part (Pt. 1) – Girl Talk
Bag of Hammers – Thao and the Get Down Stay Down
Story – Speakeasy Tiger
Broken Language – Method Man & Redman
Young Adult Friction – The Pains of Being Pure At Heart
Crimewave – Health

    That stage is now actually the SOUTHERN COMFORT stage. Which promises to be even a better time…

  • Doesn’t look like I’ll be able to squeeze this fest in what with Lolla and ACL on my schedule already. Shame!

"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.
