This will be the second year for the Monolith Festival, last year Cake and The Flaming Lips headlined. They set up 4 stages at Red Rocks, which was kinda cool, but I must say the place was about 1/2 full both days (around 4,000 people). I am not sure that this lineup will draw more people out, but i'm not a promoter, I just party and dance at shows.
The best thing about this festival? The Avett Brothers, of course. The tickets are a little pricey, but so is gas these days. Plus, its sponsored by esurance, so there will be lots of racy images of Erin Esurance, my personal favorite cartoon spokesmodel that I may or may not have masterbated to. But enough about that, back to the music:
