Dubstep duo um.. are headed to Denver in a couple of quick days for Dead Rocks 2018. For the primary time, this years occasion will span the course of two days. um.. is among the many 10 supporting acts (that’s proper, 10) set to carry out. Their new single ‘Nothing To Say‘ launched on Deadbeats is a futuristic & virtually trippy spin down a dub crammed rabbit gap. My recommendation? Be sure you give that monitor a hear. I received an opportunity to meet up with the duo earlier than heading out west. Try the unabridged interview under:
We’re lower than every week away from Dead Rocks, & this 12 months marks the fifth installment of the annual occasion. To commemorate the milestone, this years festivities will span the course of two days. Twice the pregaming. Twice the hike up from the parking zone. Twice the period of time with your folks upon the steep steps of Red Rocks Amphitheater. Twice the joy. Twice the supporting acts (if no more). Twice the Zeds. And twice the sunsets. Feeling overwhelmed? Don’t be. Happily for you, I’ve put collectively a complete information that will help you out in Denver – tickets, pregaming, sustenance, venue security, cash saving, timing, & artist familiarity.
Tickets – At the start is taking good care of enterprise outdoors of the venue. For tickets, y’all are in luck as a result of each Monday & Tuesday exhibits nonetheless have tickets on the market from the venue retailer. The secondary market isn’t but wanted, but when it does come all the way down to it, I like to recommend utilizing Stub Hub or Seat Geek. Don’t danger getting scammed by attempting to save lots of a couple of dollars. You’ll be able to’t put a value on the ache you’ll really feel once you’re caught standing outdoors since you acquired bought bogus tickets.
Pregaming – Colorado is particular as a result of it provides sure inexperienced occasion provides that aren’t out there for buy in most US States. If that is one thing that’s up your alley, I extremely (lol) suggest taking full benefit of your environment. Weedmaps is a superb locations to begin. Remember that alot of venues don’t permit consumption on property, so preserve it to at house for earlier than and after the present.
Sustenance – With fairly a excessive inhabitants of younger individuals, Denver is a metropolis bursting with inventive concepts. This particularly applies within the meals enviornment. My suggestion for the right restoration meal is undoubtedly with Denver Biscuit Co. This place tends to get jam full of a line out the door and an hour or extra wait time. Don’t let that deter you. Moderately, let it encourage you to plan forward so that you and yours can facilitate what is certain to be a not quickly forgotten culinary journey.
Venue Security – Since that’s squared away, let’s discuss what’s goin’ down in between these big, stunning, crimson rocks. First up is the apparent, security. Be careful for eachother, ya know? Don’t go overboard on the expertise enhancers (consuming, smoking, and so on). When you cowl that, then be sure you cowl sunscreen. That is actually vital y’all, and I’m not saying this simply because I’m a ginj. Pores and skin most cancers is actual and sunburns suck, royally. Keep in mind, you’re up at a literal mile of elevation the place the solar is alot extra intense. You’ll burn more durable and quicker.
Cash Saving – Now that private security is taken care of, lets maintain that pockets. This one’s apparent of us, meals is all the time dearer within the venue! Get an excellent meal in earlier than heading up, so you may rage the evening away and save the munching for after the present.
Timing – Talking of this pre Lifeless Rocks meal, I’d get it early since you’re gonna wish to get to the venue early. This 12 months is boasting 5 openers every evening. None of whom carry out each nights. With names resembling Mad Zach, DNMO, Rusko, & um.., it’s gonna be nothing however straight fuego kind open to shut, mark my phrases.
Artist Familiarity – Not aware of all of the openers? Then now’s the time to do some homework! My suggestion is to take a look at this interview with DNMO performed by none apart from Day by day Beat’s very personal Ashlyn Fulton. Hungry for extra? Take a look at my fast interview with um.. to listen to their ideas in regards to the upcoming occasion.
Secure travels everybody, I’ll see you within the mile excessive metropolis quickly sufficient.
