Come hang out with us tonight at the Westword Music Showcase Pre-Party
In the Whale's recent show at the hi-dive.
It is, as even casual observers of this section and/or billboards in the vicinity of the Golden Triangle will be aware, Westword Music Showcase season.
I say season because it's not just the festival itself (but: June 21 on that). It's also about the related Westword Music Awards, which give us an opportunity to ditch all semblance of critical distance and just tell you about a bunch of Denver bands we love. That's basically why we do all of this: The Showcase, the Awards and all the other things that go with them, including tonight's Showcase Pre-Party at Stoney's. There, we'll shut up and let some excellent bands -- In the Whale, A Band in Pictures and Science Partner -- just show you why they were nominated for an Award. It starts at 7 p.m. (no, really: bands will actually start playing then) and it costs zero dollars. Here's what you're in for:
