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

It's that time again. Next Thursday night, the Denver Film Festival kicks off. Although the various films are clearly the main draw, by no means are they the only attraction. As in years past, the real excitement takes place after the screenings. For those who are unable to get their hands on an invite to the nightly VIP afterhours parties in LoDo, where the liquor flows freely and the tunes rage until dawn, here's the word on the other shindigs in town next week. On Thursday, November 19, the Gin Blossoms are slated to perform in the The Love Hope Strength Music Lounge at the Hard Rock Cafe. Tickets for that one are $35, with procedes benefiting the Love Hope Strength Foundation. And those who purchase their tickets in advance will get a pass to the closing night screening of The Young Victoria. Elsewhere, at the Walnut Room, Meadowlark and Forest Room 5, there's a number of local acts such as the Swayback, Jim McTurnan and the Kids Who Killed the Man, Rachael Pollard, Mike Marchant and Achille Lauro, among others, who are slated to perform. Membership, of course, has its privileges: Admission to these events, which, incidently, are open to the public, is free for badge holders. Otherwise, it's $3 for ticket holders and $5 for the general public. Follow the jump for a complete rundown.

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.
