High Elevation Festival @ Fiddler’s Green / Denver, CO / 2016

MusicLeave a Comment

I have been kinda jealous over the years of places like Ohio and Oklahoma. They have these full weekend rock shows every summer and attract a lot of good bands. We don’t have that. Finally, something we don’t do better here in Colorado. Some folks put on a single day event called High Elevation Festival this year. Let’s see if it continues in the years to come. We had soccer games all day but Sydney and I made it to the main stage in time for the 3 big headliners. All of which happen to be favorites of mine and some of Sydney’s.

Chevelle was up first. Real excited to see these guys again. I have been more into them over the past few years. New album has been on repeat on my bike rides.

Avenged Sevenfold has been MIA the last few years. And here we go again seeing them at a festival show once again. Do they ever play anything but festivals? I get tired of the abbreviated set. They acted like this was the first show back — even though they played that big one with Metallica just a few weeks ago. So they were playing a few different songs out of the catalog. They even went over curfew by about 7 minutes. I wonder how much that cost them?
