Two bands have been added to the lineups for the main stages at the 2016 Westword Music Showcase on Saturday, June 25, 2016: Chef'Special and Denver's own 888

Chef’Special, a Dutch alternative folk-pop band from Haarlem, Netherlands, will join Dillon Francis, Matt and Kim, Health, and Black Pistol Fire on the Coors Light Stage.

888 is the Denver-based alternative pop-rock band that won Channel 93.3’s Hometown for the Holidays 2015 competition; local music fans may recognize bandmembers from their previous popular metalcore project, Drop Dead, Gorgeous. 888 will perform on the Bannock Street Stage, joining other KTCL favorites Cold War Kids, New Politics, Brick + Mortar and Grizfolk.
