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

It's becoming more and more evident: Not only is the Mile High City blessed with an abundance of outstanding musician folk, but there's a wealth of talented creative types out there bolstering their efforts, people like Rod Blackhurst, the Locker Partners and Eric Heights.

For his part, Heights continues to impress with his work behind the lens. Adding to his growing reel of videos for acts like the Pirate Signal, Deca, Mane Rok and 3 the Hardway, Height's latest production for "Lights," a cut by Ichiban, proves no exception. Filmed on location around the city at places like the Denver Center for the Performing Arts and the Colorado History Museum, the clip centers on high contrast daytime shots of the MC interspersed with filtered colorized night shots. Another good look for Heights, and by extension, Ichiban and the Colorado hip-hop scene.

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.
