At the 2014 awards luncheon of the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts, Governor John Hickenlooper repeated a claim that he's been making since he was mayor: Metro Denver has more music venues than Austin, a city that has a much bigger reputation as a music mecca and even bills itself as "The Live Music Capital of the World." Could that be true? We set out to do a count, and discovered that not only does Denver have more live-music venues than Austin, but it also hosts more concerts every year. At the 2015 CBCA awards luncheon, Hickenlooper again repeated the claim — this time noting that it now had the Westword seal of approval. Rock on!
