HT: How did you decide what artists would be on the bill at Bisco Inferno?
MB: Well, we wanted to slather it on and just make it a party that couldn’t be missed. Instead of only getting two openers, we wanted two openers and four set break DJs so that the music would roll continuously through the night. Lotus has gotten really big in the last few years, the New Deal are always a treat for our fans, RJD2 worked really well in Chicago, and we figured ‘let’s give it a chance’.
Z-trip is really popular in Colorado and was suggested by a few friends. Orchard Lounge always throws down a huge party and the last few times we played with them the shows were huge. And Oakenfold – well that was a no brainer. When we heard he wanted to play at this show, we invited him immediately. I mean, the guy has sold out red rocks himself (twice!).
HT: What other shows have you seen at Red Rocks?
MB: I went to see STS9 there last year. When I saw it with my own eyes, a band contemporary to ours, raging the rocks, I knew it wouldn’t be long until we had a shot. And nine months later here we are!
HT: Now that you can cross Red Rocks off of the list of headlined venues. What’s next on your list of places you’d love to play?
MB: The moon.
