Doom metal is alive and well in Denver. And what better time to bask in the realm of doom as we enter into the thick of holiday season than to have an entire evening devoted to downtuned guitars? Precisely. Needless to say, our little hearts were brimming with inextinguishable glee this morning when we caught wind of the upcoming Denver Doomfest, slated for Saturday, December 3 at the Larimer Lounge. Make plans now to see the Flight of Sleipnir, Royal Talons, Black Sleep of Kali, the Xiphoid Process, Keep, Stoic Dissention and Blighter.
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.
