Photos: Zeds Dead Didn't Let the Rain (or Hail) Ruin the First Night of Deadrocks

Zeds Dead played about four songs before the show was paused because of torrential rain and even hail. But the show went on.

Night one of Zeds Dead's tenth-annual Deadrocks concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre turned into a soaking wet rave, nearly lasting until midnight.

What started out as a beautiful night with openers Torcha, Mary Droppinz, Levity, Vctre and Doctor P as openers quickly turned into an unplanned two-part rain set for the Canadian duo. Zeds Dead played about four songs before the show was paused because of torrential rain and even hail. After an hour-long delay, the show went on and the vibes were high.
