Last Thursday was like Christmas in July for all of us ShipFam that traveled to Colorado for Hard Red Rocks. The stunning view, incredible lineup and turned up crowd were the recipe for a perfect evening, taking place just outside of the Mile High City. Option 4, Branchez and Destructo got the party started well before sundown, gearing the sold-out crowd up for a varied night of bass drops and feels from the likes of Porter Robinson who brought his live “Worlds” set to the scenic venue, Dog Blood, the Skrillex Boys Noize side project that’s rarely scene outside of a full-blown festival setting, and finally The Glitch Mob, whose new EP only fueled the fire behind their always incredible live stage show which featured the return of “The Blade”.
While arriving in a party bus full of shippers seemed the best idea ever, I was sorely mistaken when I realized that the will call stop had been by-passed completely. Red Rocks First Timer PRO TIP: Will Call is two miles away at the F*CKING BOTTOM OF THE MOUNTAIN. Somehow by the grace of God, I was able to grab a cab in my persistent altitude induced drunken state (like two beers and you are hella screwed in the Rockies seriously) and snagged my ticket in a matter of moments. Sure I was pissed about the $20 cab fee, but once I let it go, the universe took care of me when I managed to ground score $16. God Bless.
