Talent Needed|

By Emily Ferguson, Westword | Local musicians can submit their entries to the competition now through TOMORROW, May 31st. Musicians around the world dream of performing at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, particularly if the venue is in their backyard.

Now local acts have a chance to play the iconic amphitheater ahead of the final Film on the Rocks screening on August 19, thanks to a new competition called Sundown Throwdown, presented by Colorado Native (of AC Golden Brewing Company), Red Rocks and Denver Film.

From now through May 31, bands can enter the competition by submitting a YouTube video of up to five minutes to coloradonative.com/sundownthrowdown. Fans will then vote for ten acts via Colorado Native’s social media, and the final three will compete in a Battle of the Bands at Number Thirty Eight on July 26 to determine who gets the Red Rocks gig.
