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

Evidently, Nathaniel Rateliff's trip to the Big Apple for CMJ has proven to be very fruitful. According to Brooklyn Vegan, who covered the show, Rateliff wowed the crowd last night at the Music Hall of Williamsburg. The showing should give Rateliff and his Wheel bandmates, who have reportedly inked a deal with Rounder Records, a great deal of momentum as they return to Denver and prepare to release their self-titled national debut next spring. About time the rest of the country gets a taste of the sheer goodness we've enjoyed for years. Nathaniel Rateliff and the Wheel is slated to perform three more times at CMJ before return home for a pair of dates at the Fox Theater in Boulder on Thursday, November 12, and at the Bluebird on Friday, November 13.

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.
