From the sounds of it, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Wheel isn't the only Denver outfit wowing folks in New York. We just received the link to this clip of Jim McTurnan and the Kids That Killed the Man's performance last night at the Alphabet Lounge. Evidently, McTurnan really digs Gotham, likens it to the time he spent in London as a kid. Don't get any big ideas, Mr. McTurnan. You're a Denver kid now, buddy. Don't go moving! Catch the band this Saturday night at the Bluebird as it warms of the stage along with the Knew for the farewell appearance of Everything Absent or Distorted (a love story).
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.
