Winter On the Rocks 2013: There's a very good chance you'll be braving frigid temperatures to see this year's bill, which, of course, is being headlined by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis -- who crushed it last week at the Ogden -- and features Major Lazer and the Grouch & Eligh. On the other hand, this is Colorado, so it could very well be in the seventies or something on that day. Smart money's on the former, and you're going to need a place to unthaw. Lucky for you, Diplo will be heating things up (er, make that setting it off -- aw, crap, here we go mixing metaphors again) at the Gothic Theatre for the official after-party. Tickets for that little shindig are $25 and go on sale this Saturday, December 15, at 10 a.m.
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.
