Our flier of the week is a doozy this time around. It's for the Get Down party, which is moving to Beta this Friday, July 3, bringing a whole slew of talent including Whygee & Brikabrak, Input, 1984 and a bunch more. But most importantly, for FotW purposes, it gives us this incredible, candy-colored, tangerine-flake monstrosity of a show flier. What you see here is just a tiny part of the whole thing -- it was simply too big to fit in the blog, even in a reduced size/fidelity. The tiny slice you see here is full of pill bombs, graffiti-styled text, psychedelic sneakers ... it's like a hip-hop party on The Yellow Submarine! And lower down, you get AT-AT silhouettes, teddy-bear ghosts, pot leaves, and a dinosaur, among other fun stuff. That's good time in my book. To see the whole thing, click through to the jump -- but be warned, it's frigging huge and may take a while to load.
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.
