Red Rocks 2019

Recommended Posts

I would happily pay the outrageous `service fees' directly to bands through fanclubs or something in exchange for real beautiful custom tickets, mailed or willcall.

As it stands, I just get to complain while unnecessary 3rd parties make bank doing literally nothing.

Just more of the already rich using their power to stay/get richer...the only way this changes is through evolution of consciousness, down to the micro level of you and me.

As long as people covet the 'reward' of wealth and power, they have no incentive to evolve.  They evolve to try and protect the status-quo.

What’s nuts is that live nation is or at least was bleeding money because of venue acquisition and licensing rights. So us paying $19 on a $25 ticket doesn’t even make them break even. Expand at all costs, borrow, suck the money out, file bankruptcy, then sell off the pieces. The principals already sucked out their money while small investors take the hit.

Rude is a private-equity savant with lead-pipe cruelty and ruthlessness.  How do you think he affords tour?  He's fueled by the blood of his adversaries....

Just because I see bargains and borrow against the equity, then pay myself a huge salary after I slowly sell off the profitable parts of the company, doesn’t make me cruel. It means I’m smart. Geeze. I’m helping these employees move on to better pastures. 

 

Unfortunately to be a corporate raider, you need to work a lot, and that doesn’t seem fun so my spurs have been hung up.

So I’ve never been to a legal state before and so I figured I’d try to gather some intel as to what to expect security wise. 

 

Is it just a Free for all? 

 

Still gotta go thru metal wands or scanners? 

 

Best to just go edibles? 

 

My little cuz went to Folsom Field Dead and co and said it was the most strict security he’s ever been thru. Made you take lighters or cigarette packs back to your car. Which makes zero since to me at an outdoor stadium in a legal state. Any input is much appreciated

Vape pens often fly. Smoking cigarettes should be made illegal in all public places.

Now there’s a slippery slope as in

smoking AND vaping are inseparably banned in most cases including RR.

I can’t agree with that statement mango. We need less regulation and more understanding The guy standing alone in the park. No one within 50 feet of him shouldn’t be banned from smoking anything. Crack included. We are over regulated and under educated. The nature of unnecessary laws makes people want to break them with reckless disregard for others. Teaching and educating people to be kind and courteous allows us to live in harmony. Your law also unnecessarily prejudices the poorest of the poor as they are always in the public space. They sleep in a public space. I don’t want you smoking around my kids but I don’t want to control what you do in your own space whether it’s public or private.

I agree that we need less regulation and better education and understanding but I'm concerned about those things that can quickly become an harmful habit. Is there a way to semi-protect the young that don't yet know better but yet allow freedom of choice for those that can control their own life without doing harmful things to others? I don't have an answer but all of society should take a look at the situation in a better light.

 

And in the next few years if we don't turn our government around we will not be allowed to drink coffee in the office. There will be a small shed out back of the building where the drinkers of java will have to hide out. Essentially all of the coffee beans come from overseas where the workers are different from the powers at the top. A 75% tariff is planned to be announced in 2021. Only people between the ages of 23 to 55 will be allowed to have a hot cup...and then only if you have a productive job where the extra kick can up your output.  Meanwhile, I think I'll go into the kitchen, grind some good freshly roasted Costa Rican La Mintaita beans that I get from Grant at the Kaffeeklatsch, and brew up a cup in the French Press.

 

Peace and Love,

Doc

The more time I spend on this planet, the more the saying ‘live and let live’ makes sense to me. Exceptions to that are if someone is harming themselves or others. 

At that point, compassion and knowledge work wonders for positive growth. Life is an ongoing beautification process. The change, if needed, starts with the world within our reach. 

   That, along with going back to the moon, mounting speakers facing the Earth, and blaring Grateful Dead music, nonstop,  24/7 would make this world such a better place.

 Let there be songs, to fill the air....

I agree that consideration for others is way better than law. It is severely lacking though, and as a consequence i have to breath in smoke. It's a terrible scam- this cigarette business- it's one thing to make the choice to poison yourself but super uncool to smoke in close proximity to others.

I’m a non(tobacco) smoker. I hardly ever find myself annoyed by cigarette smoke outdoors. However there was a dude behind me at Black Mountain with a big ass stogie that smelled like rotten butthole that knocked me out of my happy place a couple times.

I think many people who smoke tobacco just don't realize how offensive tobacco smoke is to non smokers in an outdoor environment. As an ex smoker, I used to light up whenever and wherever outdoors, now realize how gross and offensive it was to many innocent bystanders. On the up side, excited for these shows coming up!!!

I believe that it’s still no smoking in public. 

 

Redrocks allows all smoking as long as you do it on the steps. It’s a free for all. Just don’t sit on a bench in retail areas and fire it up but u can do what you want pretty much. Worst thing that happens is you get warned. 

 

Oh and doc, outside is free air.if I wanna smoke a cig peeps can deal. I won’t blow it in their face but sorry if you can smell it 10 feet away. I don’t want to smell McDonald’s burgers, car smoke, BO either.

Let me elaborate. I believe that the new Colorado marahooch laws state that it is illegal to smoke weed in public. If that’s the law, they can arrest you for it, if they so desire. That’s all.

    • That Lucky ‘ol Sun
      By: gr8fulpair · 06/23/2019
      A song that for me totally embodies the relationship between two incredible talents that speak to one another thru their instruments. They both really shine in this one. Heard Jeff do it last year, I think Atlanta, and he fucking killed it.  Makes me emotional to hear Jerry sing it during this era. He was awesome.
    • Deal 9/5/89
      By: Ammagamalin Crew · 05/01/2019
      I did both those jgb merriweather shows, alpine and poplar creek. Horn hat AKG 460's > dbx224(battery converted) >d5. The dixie at merriweather, the lonesome at Alpine and the let's spend at poplar were choice. Heading to Louisville this weekend for Uli jon roth , closest thing to hendrix I've ever seen. My first deal was when jg opened for fz August 1984 in Chicago. the studio version is a good listen.

      By: LangeradoSoul · 05/01/2019
      I love this song. I love the record version, and I love how it changed over the years. There were more than a few hot ones in 1983-1984, then while always good, it seems that 1989 brought out extra hot ones again. I love this one with JGB, its a toss up between this one and the Alpine Valley shows from the summer which I like best from that year.

    • The Motorcycle Song -- Arlo Guthrie
      By: goganious · 02/09/2019
      I once bought a kitten and he just kept meowing and meowing. He talked quite a bit. Then I started stringing up my guitar that evening, and he came over and started pawing at the frets, meowing meowing meowing. I looked at this overly talkative creature who was now trying to play his dad's guitar, and the name was obvious at once: Arlo.  12 years later, he still talks a lot. Love Arlo Guthrie. Such a unique and funny personality. Have seen him a few times. He always puts on a great show.
