My, my, my, happy Monday, '90s alt-rock revivalists! The time to rejoice is now, for we've just learned that Afghan Whigs are coming back to Denver on Tuesday, October 30 at the Ogden Theatre! Tickets ($36.50-$40) to see the reconvened outfit, which is certainly no stranger to Denver (portions of What Jail Is Like were recorded live at the Mercury Cafe), go on sale this Saturday, July 14 -- to the general public, that is. There's a presale tomorrow at 10 a.m. (password: stepintothelight). Page down to download the song "See and Don't See."
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.
