Railroad Earth Heading Back to Red Rocks in August

Every artist, at some point in their career, has that defining, milestone performance- a moment that inspires the envy and white lies of those who failed to attend. For Railroad Earth, that moment was July 12th, 2013, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, outside of Denver.

For anyone who didn’t make it last year, short of rubbing your nose in it, here’s a bit of what you missed:

A light blanket of snow settled on the still-green trees around the amphitheater, thin layers of ice coated wooden planks and steps, and expertly positioned heaters scattered the stage.

Sound Tribe Sector Nine | Red Rocks Ampitheatre | Review & Photos

After covering some amazing STS9 shows over the years, I cannot say that I am surprised to report that this show was a dance party filled with beautiful scenery (in more ways than one), an upbeat git down fest, and a very unique combination of musical genres that can only define one band. The reason why I like them so much is because of their diversity and constant dance beats. They combine tribal, electronic, jazz, disco, and funk, which leaves their fans reeling and grinning.

After kicking off what some are calling the Fare Thee Well Tour with two nights at Red Rocks, it was clear walking up the ramps that there was a sustained energy ready to boil over on Saturday night.

Yonder Mountain String Band | Red Rocks | 8/10/2013 | Review

Yonder Mountain String Band is celebrating its 15th year as a bluegrass quartet and, as I awaited its tour closer at Red Rocks, I started reflecting on another 15-year anniversary: my own. The Music and I have been married for 15 years now.
