We've got a brief in-house update for you: Tickets for Artopia, which is Westword's annual event celebrating the city's art, culture and fashion, get a little more expensive starting tomorrow. Right now, you can get them for $25.
What you're getting, specifically, is admission to City Hall, where we'll have four rooms (including one new gallery space) filled with artists, performers and general insanity as curated by the expert hand of Jolt from Guerrilla Garden. The evening will also feature our Whiteout fashion show, and of particular interest to you, the readers of Backbeat, there will also be plenty of music.
This year's lineup includes more than fifteen local bands and artists, including headliners the Reminders, Wheelchair Sports Camp and plenty more.
You can find plenty more information about this year's Artopia, including useful logistical advice and additional programming, on the event's web site.
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.
