  • Saturday night, for only the second time in Coors Field’s history, a major concert rolled in, filling some forty thousand seats in the open air of downtown Denver. The massive stage sat in the center of the outfield, and fans blanketed the field, minus the precious infield. Even to a casual fan, the scale and setting alone was exciting. It had all the grandeur of a show at the Pepsi Center with the charm and comfort of a warm summer night in the open air. Zac Brown Band proceeded to rip through a long evening deep with covers and original hits.

  • It was a great afternoon for some Cheese on the Rocks.  The golden summer sun slanted down from the west with no hint of rain, and a cool breeze swept over the storied amphitheater.  The whole of Red Rocks had a backyard barbeque vibe; someone even brought potato salad.  Adding to the BBQ vibe, Colorado’s own bluegrass masters Hot Rize came out with SCI for what they dubbed “Hot Cheese Rizing.”

  • Outside eTown Hall on Saturday night there was none of the usual commotion of a String Cheese Incident show.  There were very few people outside on the street, there were no fingers in the air, and not a single person selling beers or grilled cheese.  In short it was a bit disorienting.  Though the event wasn't publicized in advance outside a select group of invitees, a few hardcore fans had made it in the door and were a welcomed sight up along the lip of the stage as they danced, sang and pumped their fists in the air all night.
