The Westword Music Showcase will return to over a dozen stages in the Golden Triangle neighborhood on June 20, 2015. This year's headliners include Flume, the Black Angels and Misterwives, and we've got plenty more planned!
Tickets don't go on sale until next Friday (although you can get access to an exclusive pre-sale by signing up for our Music Newsletter today). However! You can win a pair of VIP tickets right now through Westword Music. Here's what you have to do:
Over 100 Colorado bands and artists will also play this year's Showcase. Tell us who you'd like to see on the lineup using the #westwordshow hashtag on Twitter, and tell us why you think they should be included.
We'll choose one tweet (or really tweeter) to win two VIP tickets to the Showcase. It will probably be random, unless your argument is especially moving or funny.
It's worth noting that we select bands for the Showcase lineup based on our annual Westword Music Awards ballot. The finalists there are determined by a panel of experts, and we'll be announcing it shortly. So we can't make any guarantees about actually booking your favorite band. But we'd love to consider it!
And we're off! Here are a few of our favorite entrants:
Filthy T should play #WestwordShow any band that can sing about broccoli and get the house dancing should be included. And they rock it— ben doolittle (@bend813) February 26, 2015
I want to see @FameThrowa at #WestwordShow because Denver needs more avant performances. #denvermusic— Michael John McKee (@micjohmck) February 26, 2015
I'd love to see @BetsyLay at #WestwordShow because her music asks you to think about life but you feel good doing it! http://t.co/o11LeBy10U— alisonwisneski (@alisonwisneski) February 27, 2015
