Music News

We're number ten! Denver music makes top ten on two separate lists.

So hot on the heels of StubHub listing Denver at number ten on its list of twenty most rockin' cities, comes word that the Society of American Travel Writers -- evidently the largest consortium of traveling journos and photographers -- have also deigned the Mile High City as the tenth most appealing city for live music. There we are right behind New York, New Orleans, Nashville, Austin (ahem, natch) and ... wait a minute ... unlike the StubHub list, that is presumably based on gross ticket sales, on the SATW list, Denver beat out San Francisco, Dallas and Los Angeles, who didn't even make the cut. Yay us! Oh, and thanks to Phish and Red Rocks, which apparently helped us make both lists, respectively.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
