Kathryn Dove of the Grateful Web recently had the opportunity to see Boulder's own Rose Hill Drive open up for Big Head Todd and the Monsters at Red Rocks. A couple of days later we caught up with the band on tour and interviewed Jake Sproul, lead singer and bass guitarist.
The first night (8/10) was really nice. We had outstanding weather, and the crowd was mellow. As always there was lots of fun to be had in the parking lot and on the lawn.

In an effort to overturn the current administration and restore democracy to the White House, members of the entertainment industry are going on tour. Stars like Bruce Springteen will be joining the Dixie Chicks, the Dave Matthews Band, R.E.M., Pearl Jam and other pop stars for MoveOn PAC's Vote for Change Tour.

But the Sunday-program was great as well.
