Attention bands: If you're hoping to perform at the 41st annual Capitol Hill People's Fair, you better get on the stick. The deadline to apply is this Friday, January 27, at 5 p.m. (Download the application on the CHUN website.) As always, auditions will then be held at the annual Ultimate Music Experience (UMX) at Bender's Tavern (314 E. 13th Ave) on March 24 and 25, with a parade of acts putting their best wares on display each day from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
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.
