Lorin Aston (aka Bassnectar) announced today that he’ll be headlining Red Rocks on June 18th. Opening the show will be Beats Antique and Eskmo. Should be one hell of an evening. Advance tickets will go onsale on Thursday March 10th at 9am MST here. The general onsale is Saturday March 12th at 10am MST through Ticketmaster.
From the announcement: “Our goal is to create the best sounding experience in the history of the venue: we are gonna paint these rocks with bass, we’re gonna let loose the hounds of madness, and hold hands as we dive headfirst into the experiment of participation that is a Bassnectar event. And Yes!! We’re bringing Beats Antique and Eskmo with us!”
Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
