Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Last year, as you might recall, the Swayback landed a gig at Rock 'N Rev, the largest shindig at Sturgis. Just before Christmas, we posted one of the videos from that trip featuring some rad footage the dudes shot to go along with a tune called "St. Francis" that they jammed in the wee hours of the morning -- and the whole thing was reportedly done on two iPhones.

Now, for your viewing pleasure, we've just got our hands on some live footage of the Rock 'N Rev performance, plus a bonus clip of the band playing an in-store in Los Angeles Origami Vinyl, with special guest Sara T drumming on the spindles of the banister. The beloved Dance-o-tron DJ, now living in Los Angeles, came down to show some love and ended up augmenting the drum loops, which were filling in for Martijn Bolster, who didn't make the trip. And as you'll see, she does a mighty fine job.

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.
