It’s that time of year again! Use my promo code “GREEBLE” to get $20 off general admission tickets for Westword Music Showcase. The festival will be held June 29th in Golden Triangle, with local bands all day leading up to national headliners into the night. On the main stages, we’ll see CHVRCHES, Jai Wolf, Jauz, Bishop Briggs, Crooked Colours, LovelyTheBand, The Knocks, The Wrecks, Shaed and Denver’s own Slow Caves.
Check out all the rest of the locals playing, but I will give you some suggestions on who to see: Cheap Perfume, CITRA, Corsicana, Float Like A Buffalo, The Hollow, Joshua Trinidad Trio, Lady Gang, Liptruce, OptycNerd, Wes Watkins and The Velveteers. I am excited to find a bunch of new local bands because there are a bunch on the list I do not know yet.
Even more cool? It’s the 25th anniversary of WMS and Breckenridge Brewery is the presenting sponsor for 2019. 🍻
