Red Rocks Amphitheatre has a big weekend of dance music with Savoy starting things off on Friday night. Supported by Krewella, Dirty South, SOFI, Heather Bright, Dirt Monkey, Lt. Dan and Robotic Pirate Monkey, the rocks will find themselves yet again painted with glow sticks and neon, as well as whatever insanely appealing light show that Savoy brings. Known for its heavy laser show, which Red Rocks has been no stranger to this summer, the fame-by-way-of-Boulder electronic trio will paint the night sky. (6 p.m., all-ages, $50)
For the second consecutive night of electronic Red Rocks nights, Lotus comes on their headlining tour through the best venue in the world. Backed by Eoto, the live-tronic duo who plays a completely unrehearsed set of house, dubstep, electro and anything under the umbrella of EDM, as well as Emancipator, this night will certainly be one that fans won't forget. (6 p.m., $50 on TicketMaster, $40 at box office)
A pre-party for the Lotus show is going down on Saturday at the Grassroots California flagship store at 2209 Larimer Street. Catch the sounds of Freddy Todd, as well as your weekend double dose of Fisk (who also happens to be releasing his custom GRC hat at this party) starting at 4:20 p.m. with free beer and free BBQ. The pre-party ends at 7:10 p.m. with a party bus driving people to Red Rocks.
