You might have caught Young the Giant during its daytime slot at this year's Westword Music Showcase, but you still have a chance to catch the band during its headlining slot on Monday, October 3 at the Bluebird. Even though the show's sold out. (Really!) We will pick two winners at random from our Facebook fans on Thursday, October 29. To "like" Backbeat on Facebook, simply click the button in our very goth Facebook widget below and then leave us a comment below with your email (so we can reach you if you win) in the appropriate field (not in the body of your comment, lest you be spammed to death by spambots). That's all there is to it! Check your Facebook inbox on Thursday at 5 p.m. to see if you're the winner.
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.
