Here's What a Massive Thunderstorm at Red Rocks Looks Like

On Friday, the summer's funkiest Red Rocks concert featured an unexpected intermission. After opening sets from DJ Jazzy Jeff and Exmag, the skies opened, the stairwells became waterfalls and the venue advised fans to take cover. Fifteen minutes later, the worst of it had passed and people emerged from their cars and the bowels of the venue for a pair of headlining sets from Lettuce and the Motet. 

You can see the whole narrative unfold via Brandon Marshall's excellent photos in our slideshow (Happy funk fans in the sun! Water everywhere! Happy, wet funk fans in ponchos!). But let's take a moment to appreciate Brandon's recklessness in the form of some spectacular shots of lightning crackling over/around the world's most iconic music venue.
