Oh, man! Maybe the Mayans are right after all, and we really are doomed. Here we are, a mere four days into the New Year, and already we have the first sign of the pending apocalypse: We've just learned that on Saturday, May 19, Creed is coming to the Paramount Theatre, where the band will perform its magnum opus, Human Clay (which, of course, gave the world the odious ode "With Arms Wide Open"), in its entirety -- whereupon we will all surely fly into the sun. Tickets ($39.50-$79.50, plus fees) for this brodeo go on sale this Friday, January 6, at 10 a.m. via Ticket Horse.
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.
