If you haven't yet scored tickets for the Monolith Festival, which is just over a week off, now might be the ideal time to get them and save a few bucks. Esurance, one of the festivals sponsors, just released a block of 400 $99 two-day passes (no service fees) that are only available for the next 48 hours. Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Of Montreal, Girl Talk, Dandy Warhols and Phoenix are just a few of the stellar acts that will be at Red Rocks Saturday and Sunday, September 12 and 13.
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.
