Best one yet! 2011 edition of Westword Music Showcase attracts over 13,000 fans this year

Man, what a day we had yesterday at the seventeenth annual Westword Music Showcase! The music was exceptional, the weather was beyond agreeable and everywhere you looked in every direction it was a sea of smiling faces. With over 13,000 people in attendance this year, this was certainly the biggest Showcase yet -- and having been to nearly every one of them since the beginning, including the past nine editions, which I've had the distinct privilege of helping put together, I'm going to go ahead and say this was the best one yet. Hands down. From that massive dance party that Chromeo conducted to close out the evening to the bow-breaking set Murder By Death turned in to the Sword covering ZZ Top to the unbelievably strong local showing, there was no shortage memorable moments. Click through to see some of the highlights.

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

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.
