That's odd. I'm not really keeping up with things but why are they quitting Shpongle? Seems like a decent enough venture to pay the bills...

I think someone saw "last" as part of a reddit comment, but that just meant last-comment-was.

I'd be shocked if the Shpongle money machine was drying up

Yeah me too. The number of gigs they can do there is mental, and he just doesn't seem to like playing Hallucinogen sets anymore. He's looked half in to it for 2 of the last 3 I saw. Even the new tunes he has doesn't seem to have translated in to more of those sets.

That said, to the OP: red rocks is meant to be absolutely amazing as a venue. Not a bad move to go there, esp while Raja is still up and at it.

EDIT: Here is the link - found it. As per the comment below the video I suspect it's more a "we may not ever get everyone together again" warning, which is fair, rather than locking it in.

simon said because they play live every 5 or 6 years raj won't be up to shpongle in his 80's so this will be the last live show

the show is confirmed for may 4,5

Everything that starts with "Simon said" must be true.

Will be an epic show for sure man and may indeed be the last full band gig they get to do with the whole crew. 

Rajas health hasnt been great from what i know the last few years so yeah.. he will be slowing down.

Enjoy man and say hi to Michelle A for me, lol!

I was born and raised in Denver, and I currently live only 12 hours away. But I'll be on a military deployment and can't go :(

we just got v.i.p tix with all the bells and whistles back stage etc

so along with flights from australia and accomodation you get my drift

but very excited to say the least

still up to meet with any of you who do plan on coming

Red Rocks is in Morrison, so Dinosaur Ridge is worth seeing if you want to check out fossilized dino footprints. I saw them nearly 25 years ago and still distinctly remember what they look like, they left that much of an impression on me. The Denver Art Museum is pretty nice. The Natural History Museum (or whatever they call it these days) and the Denver Zoo are collocated and both worth seeing, and they're basically downtown so you can visit 16th street mall or the capitol afterwards. If you're downtown, D'Corazon Mexican Restaurant is really good. I'd recommend going to Twist and Shout Records if you're into indy, rock, classical, or metal music, but if you're mainly into electronic music it's not worth the trip. Denver's music scene is huge, so there might be concerts worth seeing besides Shpongle. Check listings for Ogdon Theater, Blue Bird Theater, Mammoth Event Center (nm, it closed). There might be new venues in addition to these, but these were the best back in the day.

If you're into the outdoors, I'd strongly recommend getting up into the mountains. Clear Creek Canyon is nearby and worth exploring. Mount Evans, one Colorado's 14kft peaks, is an hour and a half away and can be driven up (the highest paved road in North America). It's totally worth doing if you've never been up a mountain that high. Lots of the mountain stuff I like doing is up north closer to Boulder (Flatirons, El Dorado Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park, etc) which is a few hours away through dense traffic.

After reading my recommendations, I realize that I'm officially in "dad" status. I don't know any clubs or bars because I moved away when I was 19.

Oh, stay off east Colfax Ave. Unless you're into armed robberies, crackheads, thugs, rough prostitutes, and murder. The Ogden is there, and yeah it can be a little sketchy at night.

Got tix for the Saturday. Glad I stumbled across the pre sale code in my inbox - looks like the main sale was a shitfight.

we are looking at staying in kittredge, indian hills or lakeside air bnb's over the week we in the denver colarado area, on the friday night of the show we staying at the curtis hotel which we booked with the ticket, not being from there, and not a very seasoned traveller these days (yeah been a responsible parent for way to long) as well as being on a tight budget, any inside knowledge of the area as well as the travel to the venue would be much appreciated by anyone, seems uber is the way to go there,

thanks in advance
