Twenty-five years ago today, on a unseasonably dreary June day presumably a lot like the one we're experiencing right now in the Mile High City, a marginally known band from Ireland played a now legendary set at Red Rocks.

In honor of that historical moment, local tribute actUnder a Blood Red Sky
will recreate the show tonight at theGothic

Update/Irony Alert: Tonight's sold out Rush show at Red Rocks has been postponed due to...wait for it... the weather.
