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

In addition to the activity at the National Western Complex over the weekend, Riot Fest helped facilitate a series of after-shows, featuring some of the festival's biggest names playing in venues around town. Among the most successful (and compelling) of those was Thrice's Friday night appearance at Summit Music Hall. It was the band's first Colorado show since going on hiatus in 2012, and both the band and the crowd were ready for a comeback. Photographer Aaron Thackeray was there to capture Thrice in action in front of the sold-out crowd. A few of his shots are below: 

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.
