Okay, just a real quick plug for our people at BoxStateMusic -- and by people, we really mean our dude Big Joe Thunder. Cat's a one-man wrecking machine, a seemingly omnipresent figure when it comes to hip-hop in Denver. Joey T's got his ear to the streets, which is why we tapped him to co-host our hip-hop stage at Showcase. Not content to just hype the crowd, though, he also captured it in living color. Hop on over to BoxStateMusic for fresh set of flix from Showcase and stacks of stacks of killer graf shots like the one above.
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.
