My first Red Rocks show of the summer, Ghostland Observatory with Mimosa and Zion I as special guests – an energetic, dancey, fun filled evening – to think I almost didn’t go, I had tickets for STS9 the next night and thought how could this match their performance from Snowball? Not only was it matched, it was TOPPED, call it the Red Rocks magic, call it the crowd vibe, call it our “FukYah FukYah Krew” (which funny enough started at Snowball), the amazing weather, front row experience, new tracks, lasers, or once again Aaron Behrens crazy yet amazing dance moves. I left wanting more and this definitely set the precedent for all Red Rocks shows this summer.
I didn’t know what to expect from Zion I or Mimosa but was presently surprised – even though we got to the venue around 7 and Ghostland didn’t get on until around 11:30 they kept us entertained – Zion I are a hip hop duo from Oakland and Mimosa is a dubstep/glitch hop/grime DJ and producer from the Bay Area – I haven’t been into that type of music lately but Mimosa’s production and mixes really worked for me – I’d go so far as seeing him as a headliner in his own, it really set the stage (no pun intended) for the rest of the night:
I decided to experiment with video for this show and ended up putting together the below based on a few clips I took with my iPhone 4 – I’ve been wanting to explore the world of video editing so this was a good opportunity and experience and is by no means perfect, however I hope it summarizes the night and gives you all a good feel of our experience:
And because I’m obsessed with this song, here’s a cool remix:
