Seventy of Denver's best hometown bands will play the Westword Music Showcase along with national acts Shakey Graves, the Revivalists, Cut Copy, Bob Moses, COIN and A R I Z O N A, on Saturday, June 24. We reached out to the local outfits to learn more about their music and their relationship to Denver.
Here's what Ghost Tapes had to say:
Westword: How would you describe your sound?
Ghost Tapes: Modern soul music.
How has Denver influenced your sound?
A couple of our members grew up here, but being inspired by other bands and performers around Denver as well as networking and building a stronger music community has influenced us.
What could Denver do to better support musicians?
