Indie rock ambassadors Rainbow Kitten Surprise made a stop at Red Rocks to a packed house on Monday evening. We fell in love with the band the last two times they came out to the Mile High and what better way to welcome them back than have them at the musical magic kingdom known as Red Rocks. Those who couldn’t score a coveted ticket were still able to catch the performance live via Facebook and YouTube (something we wish more bands would do). Their performance was nothing short of brilliant as frontman Sam Melo directed the pace of the night. The band is well known for their amazing live sets and Monday was no different as the band fed of each others energy to put on one of the better sets we have seen this year. Favorites included “Cocaine Jesus”, “Devil Like Me”, as well as an impressive opening cover of The Eagles “Take It Easy” who were joined by opening act Caamp. Speaking of Caamp they managed to get the party started right with an impressive set fueling the crowd for the headliners. We can see a headlining set for the band in the future judged by this performance. All in all a great night of music under the rocks.
