Swedish dance bands: Your pre-vacation time waster has arrived

The day is almost over, which means your Thanksgiving vacation has almost started. All you have to do is get through these last few hours without doing any work and blessed release will have arrived. Don't worry, I'm here to help with this link to photos of Swedish dance bands from the '70s. Marvel at the hair, the beards, the costumes. Ask yourself, how did they ever get so ridiculous? Is it the times? The fact they are dance bands? Their Swedishness? I don't know. But I do know that when I sit in front of the turkey tomorrow, one of the things I will be thankful for is that they existed and the evidence still exists for my edification and immesnse delight. -- Cory Casciato

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.
