Best live music in Denver this weekend: The nineteenth annual Westword Music Showcase

The nineteenth annual Westword Music Showcase -- affectionately known otherwise as the hottest party of the summer -- is here! This year's Showcase features more than 150 artists performing on sixteen different stages. In addition to the usual must-see local acts, we've got a killer roster of headliners on the main stage, and we're also hosting the world premiere of the Colorado Symphony performing songs from Beck's Song Reader with some very special guests. Continue on for a rundown of the acts performing on the Miller Light Main Stage.
