Monolith -- Friday pictures

Gearing up for another day of awesome music, but a short report... So far all of the bands have started on time (!), the bathroom lines are reasonable (!), and the sound is amazing. I've seen Ghostland and the Decemberists at other festivals, and both bands benefited yesterday from the amazing sound quality at Red Rocks.

Red Rocks, Monolith 2007
We arrived rather early, allowing plenty of time to meander and strategerize and watch Colin Meloy take some photos of Red Rocks.

Everything Absent or Distorted, Monolith 2007
With energy to burn, a killer horn section and a shoutout to Cheyenne, local faves Everything Absent or Distorted were one of the day's favorites.

Ghostland Observatory, Monolith 2007
Ghostland always brings full energy to a performance. They never fail to make the cool kids dance. And again my mind wandered to Aaron's pants. Where does a person buy such tight, perfectly fit jeans? Amazing.

Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Monolith 2007
To Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, I said "meh".

Kings of Leon, Monolith 2007
The Kings of Leon offered a tight LOUD show. This drummer amazed me by blowing bubbles and drumming at the same time. My mother likes to point out that I can't walk and chew gum.

More pics and reports from Saturday to come!
