Deadheads Take The Rox

Robert Hunter and The Radiators on the Rox

I moved back to colorful Colorado last month and rented a place at Red Rocks Apartments in Lakewood, just minutes from Red Rocks. Last night, on the seven year anniversary of Jerry’s passing, Denver Deadhead bar, Quixote’s brought Robert Hunter to town for their second annual Quixote’s on the Rox phest. The sweet spot of his show was the four song run, New Speedway>Liberty>Loose Lucy>Terrapin. Now that’s what I’m talking about! Then the Rads came out to kick it phunky swampy style. “River Run” was their best song of the night. Surely written about the mighty Mississippi, it works equally well as a reference to the Colorado high country–headwaters for the Platte, Arkansas, and Colorado.
