Snobcast: For Fans Of Monolith Music Festival
Behind This Month’s Snobcast:
The time is approaching for the greatest music festival in the Southwest region. Yeah that’s right, Monolith returns to Red Rocks Sept. 13th & 14th. Monolith is the biggest festival to take place at what has been called the “Best Live Music Venue in North America” (Pollstar). Monolith features 60+ bands on 5 stages over 2 days.
For year number two the festival has amped-up in every way. Better hip-hop (Del tha Funky Homosapien, The Hood Internet, Dan le Sac vs Scroobius Pip), better electronica (Justice headlines Sunday), better dance music (The Presets, The Kills, CSS), plus Vampire Weekend and TV on the Radio. Better yet, no Cake. Instead we get local legends DeVotchka headlining Saturdays show. Of course one of the best things about this festival is that it’s curators abound in local love, so instead of shoving all the local bands on to one stage like some other festivals, you can catch some of Denver’s best mixed in with the national acts. Look-out for Denverites such as Hearts of Palm, Moonspeed and many more.
