Icelantic's Winter on the Rocks survival guide

Categories: Things To Do


Eric Gruneisen

Macklemore and Ryan Lewis appeared at Red Rocks once before as direct support for Big Gigantic's sold out "Rowdytown" concert, closing out the 2012 concert season. And now, hot on the heels of its sold out show at the Ogden in December, the industrious indie sensation from Seattle returns to Colorado to headline this second annual edition of Icelantic's Winter on the Rocks.

Major Lazer, who also graced the Red Rocks stage in 2011 at Global Dance Festival, will surely warm things up nicely with fresh reggaeton beats to instigate the most feverish booty dancing. Count on Diplo and his crew to provide the illest of dancehall tunes suitable for a sweaty Jamaican night club but also totally appropriate for the precipitating bodies that will fill the steps of Colorado's most prized venue.

Grouch and Eligh, who also witnessed the mayhem that is Red Rocks' rabid crowd by opening for Pretty Lights last year, will spit original rhymes and undoubtedly pitch nods to their crew, the Living Legends.

I love red rocks, and major lazer, but its going to be like 20 degrees outside in Morrison tomorrow night. That's pretty cold to go see a band without a fire for heat.
