Over the Weekend: Atmosphere on the Rocks, Auction Hunters, Descendents, meat stadiums!
No need to check your calendar: There really was a concert at Red Rocks this weekend -- one of many notable events covered by Westword's intrepid journalists and photographers for our slide-show page plus Backbeat Online, Show and Tell and Cafe Society blogs. Page down to check out samples featuring Atmosphere, the Descendents, Auction Hunters and some astonishing meat stadiums to get you salivating for Super Bowl Sunday.
"Brrr! Atmosphere headlined the first-ever winter concert at the outdoor Red Rocks Amphitheater, on Friday night, January 27, 2012. Also on the bill were Common, Grieves and Budo. Photos by Aaron Thackeray."

"Holy Super Bowl! Someone in the football universe obviously takes his deli platter damn seriously, as evidenced by this snap, a dazzling stadium display of cold cuts, crudites, chips and cheese squares."

"Denver is chock-full of storage facilities, which in turn are stuffed to the brim with things for which Denverites just can't find room. Most of the time those things are as mundane as macaroni jewelry boxes and old recliners, but in a few of those storage units are hidden treasures waiting to be appreciated. Allen Haff and Clinton "Ton" Jones, Spike TV's Auction Hunters, were in town last week, trying to find those treasures and turn them into cash."

"The Descendents were built with the inability to disappoint -- the seminal proprietors of pop punk brought a tried-and-true energy to the Fillmore Auditorium last night, for a appropriately short, two-encore set. Even if the massive venue was far from capacity, the multi-generational blanket of fans was there to sing with Milo, and sing with him they did."
