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

Black Flag, Fugazi, Descendents, Sunny Day Real Estate and the Misfits? On the same bill on the same night? Uh, no. Not in this lifetime, even if you've got Warren Buffet money and you're on some Looper shit. Sorry. But, alas, here's the next best thing, Denver, some of your town's finest musicians pooling their vast creative resources for a night to pay homage to all of the above icons, plus Andrew WK, Dethklok and Weezer at Ian ODougherty's admirably named Flattery Festival on Saturday, February 2. That last group will be channeled by some School of Rock students for an early all-ages show. We'll post more info on this as it becomes available. In the meantime, remember: Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

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.
