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

With a new release set to drop from the A-Oks at Moe's Original BBQ this weekend and another issued in past month from the Dendrites, the ska scene in Denver is off to a great start heading into the new year. And the momentum continues next month with the Denver Ska Fest, set for Friday, February 22, at the Gothic Theatre. The aforementioned pair of bands will be joined by other longtime lauded members of the scene, including P-Nuckle, Synthetic Elements, Judge Roughneck and Alpha Schoolmarm. Tickets for the show are $10 and go on sale this Saturday, January 11, at 10 a.m.

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.
