The Sword added as a headliner to this year's Westword Music Showcase on June 18!

The Sword! In case you weren't already completely stoked for this year's Westword Music Showcase on Saturday, June 18, brace yourself: The bill just became even stronger and more kick ass with the addition of these doom merchants from Austin. If you haven't experienced the Sword's corrosive brand of mayhem yet, boy are you in for a treat! Get your tickets now! Showcase is still the best value of the summer -- by a long shot!

For just $15, you'll see the Sword with Chromeo (fresh off a stint at Coachella), indie rock icons Yo La Tengo, Del the Funky Homosapien (with a full band), Murder By Death, Young the Giant, UME, plus local heroes the Epilogues and more than 150 of the best local acts. All that for just fifteen bucks! If you act now, that is. On May 2, price goes up to $20, which is still a helluva bargain, if you ask us. See you at the Showcase!
