  • In stark contrast to the last time JRAD was supposed to play Red Rocks, the weather on Thursday as the show approached was a perfect late Summer Colorado day.  The lots were hopping early, and the show was very obviously the go-to pre-party for the annual "Phish Dicks" Labor Day celebration across town at Dick's Sporting Goods Park.  As Phishheads and Deadheads rubbed shoulders in the amphitheater, to say the energy and anticipation was high would be an understatement - the place was buzzing.

  • The Wheels of Soul rolled into Red Rocks last weekend and featured two nights of Tedeschi Trucks Band, The Wood Brothers, and Hot Tuna.  Despite some rain early on Sunday, the fans got a healthy helping of Roots, Soul, Rock and Blues that featured more collaborations and covers than anyone could have anticipated.  It was a memorable night on The Rocks and one that will likely go down in the lore of the storied venue.

  • Trey Anastasio, legendary guitarist for Phish, stopped into Red Rocks for the first time since 2009 (and first time with TAB since 2005) and there's no doubt he was happy to be back.  Anastasio's grin was a near permanent fixture from the first time he appeared on stage to sit in with Vulfpeck for a take on "Rango" early in the night, till the final notes of "Dazed and Confused" reverberated off the rocks and disappeared into the night air.

  • While most concert scenes can be relatively predictable in terms of who is going to show up, if there is one scene that has become as predictable as June Cleaver it's Phish at Dick's.  The energy in the air is palpable as the Vermont quartet has built up a long history of largely stellar performances at the soccer stadium and the Shakedown is a wild open air market offering up all kinds of lot goods from the most insane Mac & Cheese subs (yes, I said Mac & Cheese subs) courtesy of The Gouda Boys, to your standard lyric tees and heady glass.
