It's all about the image. This week's flier sports a warped, neo-psychedelic visual that takes us back to the days of drawing out our drug-inspired visions on our high-school math notebooks. Except, we weren't nearly this good, and we drew a lot more dragons and shit. In any case, the guitar (or ukelele?) spewing out flowers and stars, the singing, winged amplifier and the sardonic, slightly evil sun are definitely eye-catching and groovy. Design wise, this flier is hurt a bit by the rude intrusion of the text at the bottom, but hey, I guess you gotta tell us somehow that in addition to Box Elders, we'll get the Fresh & Onlys, Pacific Pride and Bluebelle at Bender's on October 13, so we forgive you. Especially because we're still staring intently at that sun, waiting for it to melt. Click on the image for a bigger version and join us in our intense staring.
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.
