Concert Reviews

In an effort to get prepared for Showcase, we proved that Thursday really is the new Friday

The lineup for this weekend's Westword Music Showcase is pretty extensive. In fact, if you're unprepared it can be overwhelming. With this notion in mind, we put ourselves through a practice run for Showcase and hit every show we could last night. From Funky Buddha, where the work-out started, to the Bluebird Theatre where it finished (click through for a full photo rundown), we got quite a workout and now feel sufficiently prepared to get our Showcase on.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
