Just a quick reminder in case you missed it in the paper or on the blog earlier this week: Tonight, the seventeenth annual Westword Music Showcase Awards are taking place at the Bluebird Theater. After months of voting and a stellar Showcase this past weekend, we reveal the winners in each of the forty categories on the ballot.
If you were nominated and you haven't received an email invite to the VIP reception, please drop us a line and we'll make sure you get one. Otherwise, we hope to see you tonight at the Bluebird at 7 p.m. for the award ceremony, which is free and open to the public. Oh and just for fun, since we're on the subject of Showcase, below is a behind the scenes look at the cover photo shoot for last week's issue featuring the Epilogues.
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.
