Film on the Rocks has become a rite of summer at this point for fans and a milestone in the careers of the lucky musicians who get to perform each year on the hallowed stage of Red Rocks. After a fake version reportedly made the rounds this past weekend, the actual 2011 Film On the Rocks schedule has been posted, and from the looks of it, there's going to be some odd bedfellows this year as in year's past (our favorite: Candy Claws before Top Gun). There's also a number of national acts on the docket, including Marc Broussard and Scars on 45. The season kicks off on May 31 with the Big Lebowski and the Informants (back in business, apparently). See the full schedule below.
