PHOTOS / VIDEO / SETLIST: Lotus, EOTO and Emancipator @ Red Rocks 9/8/12

After countless shows either at Red Rocks Amphitheatre or seeing Lotus live, I can confidently say that neither one have ever disappointed me. And the holy combination of the two is a mixture nearly worthy of divinity. Last Saturday nightWith two world class openers this show achieved the rare feat of keeping me on my toes for the whole duration. Beginning with a set at dusk, Emancipator set the stage for the evening. I really enjoyed this set but I wasn’t surprised at all by it. I was already amped up and waiting for the EOTO set, with their “lotus stage” already set up and waiting for its moment to shine. Bassnectar fans may remember a project that Bassnectar was running called the “AmBASSadors”. Die hard EOTO (End Of Time Observatory) fans can now be a part of the “Observers.” As an inagural event, the Observers launched a coordinated glow-copter frenzy over the crowd during the band’s set in celebration of their first time playing at Red Rocks as EOTO (Travis and Hann have performed many times at the venue as String Cheese Incident). We were there on site to capture highlights of this milestone performance for EOTO so be sure to stay on the lookout for that special video treat.

And finally, Saturday night was for me one of the best Lotus performances I’ve ever seen. They played a spectacular setlist playing a lot of fan favorites. They debuted a new track, the remix “Cannon in the Heavens” and no mile-high performance is complete without “Colorado,” as it is a very sentimental track for many C-O fans. We’ve got photos, Lotus’ setlist and a dope video too.
