Last night Hot Congress took over the Gothic for Hot Congress 2011 Fest, with performances by Fingers Of The Sun, Lil Slugger, Kissing Party, Night of Joy (featuring our own Bree Davies) and Thee Goochi Boiz. Photographer Jonathan Shoup was there and brings back these photos from the show. See the full slideshow here: Hot Congress 2011 Fest at the Gothic. Here are few highlights from last night.

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.
