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.

Have a great time! Especially with BRMC. I interviewed Peter a few days ago and he was lovely. Can't wait to read your upcoming posts!
