Reminder: Today is the last day to get discounted tickets for the 2012 Westword Music Showcase. If you haven't noticed, this year's lineup is stacked. Thought Chromeo and Ghostland Observatory brought it before? When Girl Talk closes out the mainstage, we have no doubt he'll make past years seem like a quaint get little get together with a few friends. Confetti cannons, mass craziness, everybody getting down like it's the last night on earth -- if you've been to a Girl Talk show, you know exactly what we're talking about.
And that's to say nothing of all the dope music you'll experience beforehand from Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, Battles, Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears and Baywood -- and that's in addition to the best local acts! We'll be announcing those in a few weeks. And all of that is just $20! Still the best bargain of the summer! Were no mathletes, but we're pretty sure that works out to pennies per performer or something like that. Anyhow, don't sleep. Get your tickets now!
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.
