Denver’s local music scene has a lot to offer. From noteworthy national names to big festivals like this year’s Grandoozy, there’s never a shortage of killer shows to attend. But as much as Denver loves touring national bands, there isn’t much that compares to the love we give to our local music scene. And for those who enjoy being part of the Denver scene, Red Rocks’ Local Set Series is the perfect way to show some love to the locals.
Red Rocks Amphitheatre kicked off it’s second annual Local Set Series last Saturday with locals Venture Still and Paul Frost & the Huffy Boys. Last weekend’s show was the first of nine Local Set Shows this season that includes a dining experience. While the full line up for these shows has not been announced just yet, the bands that have been announced are a sign of great things to come.
Over the course of the next few months, audiences will have a chance to see local bands such as Float Like A Buffalo, Many Mountains and all of the other bands yet to be announced, for intimate shows at Red Rocks’ much smaller indoor performance space. In addition to the local music fare, attendees will also get a full buffet dinner. Each show will feature a unique themed meal and drinks.
Attendees will also have an exclusive opportunity for a backstage tour of Red Rocks. For an additional $10 guests get access to all of the history behind the scenes at the world-famous amphitheater. This includes a once-in-a-lifetime look at the famous Red Rocks tunnel — an opportunity typically reserved for those performing at the legendary venue. Some of music’s biggest names have signed the walls of the tunnel, from Zac Brown Band to Grammy Award winner Bon Iver.
