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

Leave it to the often brilliant, overstimulated, complicated mind of Yonnas Abraham to come up with something completely creative on the fly that nobody else would even remotely have thought of -- much less be able to facilitate -- to turn what might otherwise be just another show for any other act into something of a one-of-a-kind, must-see sort of spectacle.

BLKHRTS are getting ready to hit the road for a short trip out west, and as a tour kick off, the crew is hosting a sacrificial ceremony at Old Curtis Street on Saturday, August 6. But this invocation isn't in name only: Turner Jackson has been tapped to officiate, 1984 is serving as the drum corp, and Isis Speaks is handling execution duties. A program has been drawn up and everything, and wearing black is encouraged. Have a look below and listen to a brand new remix of "SX DRGS VLNC MN DTH."

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.
