Denver's biggest one-day music festival is happening this weekend in and around the Golden Triangle neighborhood!
In my mind, the Westword Music Showcase kicks off summer and the season for outdoor music events. This year it will feature over 100 local bands playing in various venues including Bar Standard (1037 Broadway), City Hall (1144 Broadway) and Curious Theater (1080 Acoma). In addition, there is the Main Stage located at 12th and Acoma that will house the exciting national acts slated to perform. Chromeo, Yo La Tengo (I can't wait to see them!), The Sword and Del the Funky Homosapien are just a few of the bands that will play to the over 10,000 people expected to attend. Advance tickets are on sale now for $10 and go up to $15 on the day of the show.
Bonus! The weather report for Saturday looks great: mostly sunny and mild, afternoon highs 78-83 degrees. Perfect for walking around and getting an earful of the hardworking bands making music in Denver.
