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

Okay, so this might be the coolest Westword Music Showcase-related item we've ever come across. It's getting to be that time of year again where we start gearing up for another edition of the annual summertime local music extravaganza, which probably accounts for how our colleague Jared Jacang Maher came across this cool YouTube video. The clip, put together by area resident Kim Sidwell, whose living space is adjacent to the lot on 12th and Acoma where the Showcase's mainstage is located, was shot from the rooftop over the course of the day. It's pretty neat. Take a gander after the jump.

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.
