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

To see Space Team Electra live is to see Myshel Prasad summon spirits. In the band's moody, melancholy moments, the singer channels the high priestess of poetic punk drama, Patti Smith; during harder numbers, her guitar-laden grind recalls Inger Lorre, leader of the late, great Nymphs. But Prasad's personal spirit shines brighter than any of those from the past: She is on stage to purge her soul, and, fortunately, it's a pleasing soul to listen to. With Space Team's latest release, The Intergalactic Torch Song, Prasad and company construct a wall of sound so huge, thick and fuzzy it could hold Phil Spector captive -- not to mention, you. In what is becoming something of a Denver tradition, the band will perform with fellow dream merchants the Czars on Friday, March 7, at Cervantes' Master Ballroom; the show is a benefit for the Colorado AIDS Project. Expected highlights include a couple of Space Team collaborations with the stoic six-piece which, after coming off a recent overseas tour, sounds as tight, confident and vibrant as ever.

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.
