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

True story: I never used to use profanity. It made me uncomfortable, and every time I tried to utter "shitassdickface," it just came out an awkward mess of syllables that weighed the same on the grace scale as June Cleaver dropping a "fo' shizzle." But like a straight-edge kid selling out, after a few years I gave up my rigid linguistic morals in favor of getting crunk and slurring obscenities out the car window. And now dirty whisperers like me everywhere can come together over Fucking Orange, who, by the way, fucking kills. The four-piece has more in common with the sludge-metal likes of Orange Goblin than the punk manifesto of Agent Orange -- and if Orange 9mm wanted in, then Fucking Orange would slay that pop-punk sound, too. The boys of Fucking Orange are a goddamn blessing of evil rock and drop-D tuning. Cock out with the band on Friday, June 2, at the hi-dive, with the Tarmints and Machine Gun Blues. And bring some soap to wash out that filthy little mouth of yours. -- Tuyet Nguyen

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.
