Our friends over at The Westword have unveiled the schedule for their Westword Music Showcase and we’ve got it below for you. Headlined by Chromeo and Yo La Tengo, the day is chock full of national touring acts and some of Denver’s best local bands. It sold out last year so don’t miss your chance to get tickets before they are gone!
Music has always been a part of my life. It probably all started listening to old Grateful Dead, Peter Paul & Mary, and Simon & Garfunkel records that my parents had, but it wasn't long before they were taking me to concerts like Starship, Crosby, Stills & Nash, and Huey Lewis & The News. I got the bug to write about music after reviewing an Eric Clapton concert for a creative writing project in high school but didn't really take it up seriously until 2002. Since then I have published countless articles in The Marquee Magazine and done some work for Jambase.com, SPIN Magazine, and various other outlets. I started Listen Up Denver! as a way to share the music information that is constantly spilling out of my head with people who care. Please enjoy!
