Last night at Red Rocks, Mastodon, the Deftones and Alice In Chains got it on for a one-of-a-kind mountain metal sandwich, the kind of awesome threesome you usually only hear about, rarely experience and talk about for years to come. We sent our resident shutterbug Aaron Thackeray up the hill to capture the whole thing for posterity -- well, and to allow us all to live vicariously through his lens. Check out some of his choicest live shots after the jump, and then head over to this slideshow "Deftones at Red Rocks" photos to see all of his pics.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
