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

Thanks to the magic of MySpace friendship, I was recently hipped to Rowboat, the beautifully melancholy project from Sam McNitt of Blue Million Miles. I haven't had the chance to catch the act live yet, but if the tracks currently streaming on the MySpace profile are any indication, very tasty things are to come. Built around McNitt's sorrow-hardened voice, confessional lyrics and understated strumming, Rowboat's songs surge and swell with sad and resolute grandeur. Since sad music often makes me happy, I'm unreasonably excited about this outfit. Rowboat will play at the Meadowlark this Friday, February 20, and again on Saturday, March 14.

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.
