Your may notice that it’s August and Westword Music Showcase happened in June. I hate it when people make excuses for late posts, but hopefully I can get a pass after the year I have had? Pretty please?
Either way, my lateness is no reflection on the awesomeness of WMS. The style of headliners shifted a bit this year – whereas the end of the night has usually been full of pumping beats and lights… and for 2017, Shakey Graves torn down the house (err, parking lot) with just his voice and a guitar.
Personally, I welcome the change – particularly with The Revivalists romping around just as the sun was setting on a gorgeous Denver day.
It’s impossible for one person to see all the bands at all the venues, so I had to pick and choose – I missed so many great acts. I loved everyone I saw, especially all the local talent who play early in the festival.
I’m already looking forward to next June… and scheduling time to get the photos up much faster!
