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

Boba Fett & the Americans, the fifteen-piece guerrilla-style marching band, will be heading to New York City to play all over Manhattan for three days during the CMJ Music Marathon, which runs from Tuesday October 18 to Saturday, October 22. The band, which includes DeVotchKa's drummer/trumpeter Shawn King, recently reached its goal of close to $6,000 on Kickstarter to set up everyone in the group up with flights and somewhere to sleep.

Last week, we wrote that another Denver band, Gauntlet Hair, is also playing CMJ.

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.
