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

It's rare to see a flier for a dance-music event that's this elegant and understated. Fliers for what used to be called raves relied heavily on abstract CGI imagery, eye-scorching color schemes and faux-clever drug/pop culture references to grab one's attention. None of that is on display here. Instead we get an almost classical image, repeated in mirrored symmetry, of a nude reclining on a couch. Backing that is some abstract trees and squiggles that put us in mind of Japanese art. The use of text is minimal and unintrusive, highlighting just the date and location of October 16 at b.side in Boulder and saving the lineup (that'd be Les Freres Courvoisier, Brandon Brown, Ivy and Papyrus) and other info for the back of the flier. Combined with a muted color scheme, what you have is an attractive flier that catches the eye and attention without resorting to cheap tricks or seizure-inducing imagery. Bravo, Libra, bravo.

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.
