On Broadway

There's no place else to be today but the Westword Music Showcase — even if we do say so ourselves. We started by assembling what is arguably our best lineup of headlining talent ever, including Ghostland Observatory, Superchunk, Dirty Projectors, Neon Indian, BoomBox, Single File, Tickle Me Pink, Oh My Stars and Jonathan Tyler and the Northern Lights. Then we carefully selected nearly 100 of the best local acts in every genre, including just about every imaginable strain of rock, Denver hip-hop's finest, local dance-music titans and a healthy selection of folk, country, Americana and world music.

Now we're serving it up in more than a dozen great venues in the Golden Triangle neighborhood, all yours for the unbelievably low price of $15 — or $30, if you're a slacker who waits until the day of the show to pick yours up. Not only is it an incredible deal, it's also the best single-day primer on the state of our excellent local music scene a fan could ever ask for. For the full lineup, list of venues and other info, or to purchase tickets, visit westword.com/musicshowcase.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
