Mark your calendars: We've just heard that the Avett Brothers are due at Red Rocks on Saturday, July 9, with Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. Presale begins on Tuesday, March 8. Tickets officially on sale next Saturday. Don't snooze. How quickly do you think that bad boy is going to sell out? Um, given their recent exposure on the Grammys and their rapidly growing fan base in Colorado, we're going to go with "almost immediately" for a $100, Alex.
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.
