VuHaus, non-profit music video aggregator and music discovery platform, premiered Elephant Revival's 2016 Red Rocks performance of "The Garden" in the launch of their VuHaus Colorado page, two weeks ago. "The Garden" was also featured as the VuHaus Song of the Day, last Tuesday, March 14th. See the video on VuHaus here.
This video captures Elephant Revival's performance of “The Garden” during their very first time headlining the nationally infamous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in 2016. The band is thrilled to share this experience with the world—an experience that every Colorado band dreams of and only some have the very special opportunity to achieve. For this concert, Elephant Revival was pleased to bring Josh Ritter and Rising Appalachia on as support at the Morrison venue. Accompanying Elephant Revival in this performance are spectacular aerialists and fire dancers from Colorado-based theatrical circus group Fractal Tribe. Guest musicians include Leah Song and Chloe Smith of Rising Appalachia and Laurie Shook of the Shook Twins. “The Garden” was written by Daniel Rodriguez and has only previously been released as a live recording on Elephant Revival’s 2015 CD/DVD Sands of Now.

Playing ‘The Garden’ live invites an exhilarating atmosphere, uninhibited, mysterious, with no looking back. And what a place to play it—at Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre. ‘The Garden’ beholds one of my favorite lyrics that has fallen upon the pages: ‘The leaves become the soil, and then become the garden. In death how men do toil, a flower for the departed.’ Thanks for listening!" --Daniel Rodriquez
Fractal Tribe’s talents, kindness, and aesthetic awareness is amazing! They work as a team to combine the best of all their skills, and they all shine so bright! They are such a pleasure to collaborate with; always open to ideas while contributing their tricks in uniquely gorgeous ways. They express joy in performing with us and a special connection to the music, which has supported them both as a tribe and as individuals. Within this mutual curiosity, each show we share dives deeper in connection between their art and ours. Big thanks to Lunar Fire for sharing the display of the Dreamcatcher for this performance!” --Bridget Law
