#LeafLife – Red Bull Sound Select
#LeafLife is a collection of stories from people who live progressive, active, successful and or interesting lives while enjoying cannabis responsibly.
For those who don’t know, the Red Bull Sound Select is insanely awesome. Across the country they curate shows featuring local artists and throw one helluva party. It was the obvious choice for a Saturday night with a few friends.
It’s an undeniable fact that marijuana and music go hand in hand. Well, it’s not a fact but I believe it. Needing no further justification, I burned down a Sweet Leaf cone with the dudes before we walked to the Moon Room for the show.
Walking in, we were completely stoked to get our cameras set up to shoot a few pictures and enjoy the night. I’m not typically the type to roll into a show on time. Usually I miss the first few openers. Luckily that wasn’t the case this time. I made sure to show up early.
The entire lineup was dope. Crl Crll was the first to christen the stage with his performance. If you enjoy The Weeknd, you’d love Crl Crll. His combination of undeniably groovy synth beats and smooth Frank Ocean esque vocals captured the audience. It’s the type of music that inspires late night drives through the city lights. Absolutely perfect music to enjoy a back porch joint with friends.
Not knowing the artists well myself, I was impressed with how well the audience knew the music. Everyone danced better than me AND knew the words…
F.L. aka F.lawless killed it. His heady lyrics and slow instrumental beats had the crowd vibing. It was cool seeing how amped everyone was, really throwing down and having a good time with this Colorado artist. Stream some here!
Towkio was another story. By the time he had come on, everyone had more than just their first free Red Bull vodka of the night and the room was charged. Dancing had not slowed by this point, it had just gotten soggier. As Towkio came on, the crowd lit up and it seemed like everyone in the crowd had been friends for years. We were totally in the moment with the sounds of Towkio. Completely charging.
The show was amazing. The crowd couldn’t have been more stoked. I’m definitely looking forward to the next Red Bull Sound Select here in Colorado.
