Westword Music Showcase

The (Illustrated) Westword Music Showcase map

Editor: This Saturday's Westword Music Showcase features over 150 bands on 17 stages. That's a lot to navigate -- you can see the full schedule here. But while the venues aren't completely divided by genre, there is a certain type of music you can generally expect in some of these places. To help you get the lay of the land, we've tasked illustrator Noah Van Sciver with creating the map you see here.

There will be a larger version of this map in this week's print edition of Westword, where Vinyl has also drifted back across the street where it belongs. You'll also find an interactive map that's designed to be more functional on the Showcase app.

And here's a bunch more information about the Westword Music Showcase: -Eight reasons it's great to be a musician in Colorado, according to the bands -Build your own schedule with the Showcase app. -The 36 best songs you might hear on the main stage at this year's Westword Music Showcase -The 2014 Westword Music Awards nominees -The people of Westword Music Showcase 2013 -Ticket page for this year's Showcase
