Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

The city of Denver is known for its various breeds of beer geeks, outdoor enthusiasts and sports nuts, but the varied climate of the Denver music scene inspires a particularly diverse group of enthusiasts. Over on the Backbeat blog, our field guide to music fans offers some useful tips for spotting various species of arts lovers as well.

Our favorite part of the series? The illustrations by local cartoonist Noah Van Sciver.

But you can't please all the people all of the time. Says Hayley (succinctly, but several times -- don't hit twice if you're posting on Facebook):

The illustrations suck.

Check those illustrations out here, and then let us know below if you agree.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
