Tonight, the Whigs are in town over at the Bluebird with the Features and the Dead Trees, and we've got a pair of tickets to the show up for grabs. If you'd like to be our guest at the gig this evening, drop us a line and tell us who or what the Flying Dorios are, and what, if anything, it has to do with the Whigs. (Hint: You'll find the answer by reading the Q&A we posted last year with drummer Julian Dorio.)
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.
