This past weekend, the Solution crew kicked off #TheSolution7 at the Meadowlark, commemorating the seventh year of the long-running, award-winning hip-hop night. The celebration continues this Friday, February 14, with a special Valentine's Day edition at the Meadowlark with a playlist of slow jams at the end of the evening, followed by some themed parties later in the month, a beat workshop and beat battle, culminating with a beat swap and fashion show. Continue on for the full schedule, and check out the full slideshow from this past Friday's party.
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.
