Westword Music Showcase headliners revealed

It's that time again. This year's edition of Westword Music Showcase is quickly approaching...okay, so it's not actually taking place until Saturday, June 23, so maybe it's not approaching that quickly. But still, it's time to start getting amped: For one, tickets go sale on Monday, March 5, so you'll want to be sure to get the drop, and two, we've just revealed a few of our headliners this year -- or we're about to, rather. Right now. Page down.

As you've no doubt deduced by the artwork above, Girl Talk (aka Greg Gillis) will be closing out what is sure to be the most killer party of the summer. And before he gets down to business, Macklemore with Ryan Lewis and Battles will tear it up, along with more than 150 of the best local acts.

Keep an eye on Backbeat as we reveal more mainstage acts in the coming weeks, along with this year's ballot. Oh and we've got some room on our nominating committee for some readers if you'd like to take part in helping us pick those acts. Interested? Shoot us an email with "Nominating Committee" in the subject line and tell us how big a local fan you are and why you should be included. Better get on it, though, we're polling folks now all the way through next week.
