Welcome to the debut of our random midweek contest in which we give you a bunch of you a bunch of random things from our office for answering a bunch of random questions every week. Kind of random, eh? Anyhow, for the inaugural edition of our humpday hoedown, we thought we'd take it kind of easy on you. So here's the challenge: the photo above is the background image of of someone we just started following this morning on Twitter. If you can figure out who it is, drop us a private message on Twitter @westword_music (feel free to follow us while you're there) or hit us up on e-mail and later this afternoon, we'll hook up some random winners with a prize pack of random goodies. Hint: the artist in question has generated a huge local buzz recently and is responsible for one of our favorite records of the moment. Oh, and the most prominent thing in the photo should give you another big clue in case you need one. Good luck. Off you go.
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.
