The Monolith Music Festival is a study in contrasts.

Day Two of the indie rock-centered party at Red Rocks Amphitheatre was drier, sunnier and overall friendlier than the Saturday installment, which found people fleeing inclement weather for packed, sweaty indoor areas.

The second day served up a more accessible blend of acts and, luckily, much better weather. Israeli rockers Monotonix presented perhaps the best and most energetic set of the day, starting their set from the front of the upstairs stage and working their way inexorably into the crowd.

Lead singer Ami Shalev writhed atop the audience’s hands as he pounded a similarly supported drum. It was nearly worth the admission price to watch fey hipsters in trendy sunglasses have deflated beach balls wrapped around their faces by Shalev as he bared his behind, cameras flashing.
