Presenting the 2010 Westword Music Showcase Schedule and Map

IMPORTANT SCHEDULING UPDATE: Due to circumstances beyond our control (and, more to the point, frontman Chris Fogal's) TAUNTAUN will not be performing in the 6:15 - 7 p.m. slot at Broadway's tomorrow. While Fogal is resting his aching back ("I would tough it out," he assures us, "but the problem is that I can't even sing quietly because of the pressure. It kills. If I try to yell at the top of my lungs I'm certain that I will die, which would make for a good show, yes, but I am not ready for that yet."), the almighty BLACK LAMB will be rocking in his (and TAUNTAUN's) stead.

All right, here it is, the moment you've all been waiting for: We present the 2010 Westword Music Showcase schedule. Here we are just a little more than a week away from the biggest and best Showcase we've ever hosted, and as you'll see from the lineup after the jump (look for a printable version to be posted on Monday), you're going to need that time to figure out your itinerary. We apologize in advance for the agonizing decisions you're going to faced with making.

Actually, though, come to think of it, the choices really shouldn't be all that agonizing. Apart from the hip-hop showcase at Vinyl, each of the sets are 45-minutes long, which means you'll have plenty of time to check out more than one act per hour if you choose. If you haven't already picked up your tickets, do so today. This is the last week they'll be on sale for $15, and today's the last day that you can have them mailed directly to you. Oh, and if you haven't taken advantage of the VIP package -- see the perks after the jump -- there's still a limited number of those left for $75.

VIP PACKAGE INCLUDES: Two private viewing areas at the outdoor festival area, complimentary catering from Moe's BBQ, two beers or cocktails, two red bulls, complimentary water, access to VIP restrooms, commemorative festival laminate, poster, and t-shirt. You also get a chance to win band meet and greets, as well as a chance to win poster signed by national talent. As part of the VIP experience, The Living Room, will provide hors d'oeuvres and private seating.
