Every year, the Westword Music Showcase brings some of the city's best acts to venues throughout the Golden Triangle neighborhood. To find out more about some of the acts that will be performing at the Showcase on Saturday, June 23, we sent them a questionnaire that includes questions about the local music scene.
Here's what MLIMA had to say:
Westword: What do you want readers to know about your music?
MLIMA: We want readers to know that we try everything. Our music is always groovy, but ever-changing.
How has Denver influenced your sound?
Denver has influenced our sound through the massive jam and funk scene we experience.
What are the biggest issues Denver musicians face in 2018 — good and bad?
The biggest issues we face as musicians in the Denver scene of 2018 is the struggle to get paid. There are so many bands, and we’re a seven-piece group trying to make a living wage. Just know that we throw a party, and you feel our energy when we perform!
What has you most excited about playing the 2018 Westword Music Showcase?
We’re very excited to be playing at Stoney’s for Showcase. Our friends in Tivoli Brass play right before us. Expect surprises!
MLIMA will perform at the Westword Music Showcase at 4:20 p.m. Saturday, June 23, at Stoney's Main, 1111 Lincoln Street. Get more information and tickets at westwordshowcase.com.
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.
