Make Music Denver clangs through downtown

Tourists who hit downtown yesterday will leave the Mile High City with a slightly exaggerated impression of the role music plays in the workaday lives of Denverites. During the first-ever Make Music Denver -- an all-day, outdoor showcase of local music that builds on a global movement to celebrate music as a public art at least one day each year -- the 16th Street Mall was recast as an artist friendly thoroughfare with more than 21 pop-up venues scattered from tip to tail.
