I've heard 3 nights at Cuthbert (fri/sat/sun) the weekend of Sept 23/24/25.
I don't see any tickets on sale yet, (but I made a rez at the LaQuinta and the guy confirmed a "three-night-concert").

Yep, a friend of mine who works for Kesey Enterprises told me this is pretty much a done deal.

Pete, maybe I could talk you into a lesson or two while you're in town??

Yeah Man, I'll be in town Fri afternoon-Sun afternoon that weekend, and will be staying at the laQuinta by Alton Baker park.
I brought an acoustic along last time and jammed with a guy from Alaska at the hotel, and some other guys in the lot.
Give a ring anytime.

Awesome! I plan to take Fri off, or at least cut out early for some pre-show festivities, and will be around all weekend. I live about 5 miles from the Cuthbert, an easy bike ride. We should definitely try to connect. I'll PM you my info, it's always good to have a local contact just in case.

Awesome! Glad to hear this is actually happening. I just PM'd Pete about hookin' up in PDX. Didn't realize you also taught Pete. Love to hook up & Jam in Eugene too. I'll tell my wife we need nights at the LaQuinta. Gonna be awesome...especially if they mic the background singers down a bit. Whoops...that was a dig..

Hmm..I figured those would be the RR dates. The weekend after would be too dicey weather wise, so that leaves the weekend of 9/16. Works for me.

Do you know what La Quinta means in English? The Quinta. True.

It is sold out for that weekend! Guess it is legit.

Red rocks?

Postby vwjodyme » Tue Jun 07, 2011 8:42 am

I haven't been to red rocks in around 15 yrs and never officially got in so i am thinking this is my chance.
two questions:
1. Anyone have any info on hotels or camping? i dont remember much there except a little strip of town, and most trip sites take you back into denver.

2. Anyone ever make the drive from the northeast? how long did it take and is it scenic at all? i don't think i've ever taken I-80, but the times i did 70 i remember thinking kansas would never end...just long and flat forever.

Take your pick......Nebraska, miles and miles of corn, or Kansas, miles and miles of nothing.

It's been forever since I've driven it...Montana to Jersey...and Colorado to Jersey. Grueling drives...no matter how you slice it there is one great big chunk of nothing out there. The drive will really take it out of you. Listen to David Bromberg's New Lee Highway Blues...sums it up..."eatin' carbonated crap and churning up inside...with nowhere to go from here but up or down that road...and nothin' over there but the same goddamn town"...great tune...tough drive.
Good Luck!
