Furthur at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, 9/22/12


All signs pointed to go before the doors to the venue even opened. It was the first day of fall, a beautiful day, and all four of Red Rocks' main parking lots were filled up by 5:30 p.m. Deadheads were parked out on Highway 93 and trekking their way up to the party scene going on closer to the venue. Shakedown Street was packed in with pipe vendors, hippies burning sage, people selling beer behind the backs of the not-so-watchful cops. Dozens of people milled around with their fingers in the air or holding up wads of cash in hopes of finding an elusive extra ticket for the show.
