Westword Music Showcase

Westword Music Showcase

September 9-10, 2022

Denver, CO

RiNo Art District & Mission Ballroom

Tickets available here

In 1995 Westword Weekly started the Westword Music Showcase. As it approaches 30 years, it has gone through changes. Originally staged in LoDo it moved to the Golden Triangle and now is in two Denver hotspots: RiNo Arts District & The Mission Ballroom. It has gone from a one day experience to 2 days. It has gone from July to September. This year’s showcase features over 60 acts, on 12 stages…a third of them women.

FEMMUSIC has covered Westword Music Showcase since 2015 in previews, features and galleries. Through Westword Music Showcase we have found many acts we would have never heard of: both local and national. This year, we are looking forward to:

Wet Leg –  Wet Leg released their debut album in 2021 and have skyrocketed ever since. Rhian Teasdale & Hester Chambers’ have seen their US tour need bigger venues.

Cannons –  Cannons’ released their 3rd album Fever Dream earlier this year. Michelle Joy leads this band that has a sound between lounge and indie rock. They are always a fun show. See our photos here.

Big Richard – This an all women, all acoustic band with Bonnie Sims, Joy Adams, Emma Rose, and Eve Panning. We first heard of them in the Spring at E-Town. They have a headlining show at the Gothic in October.

Bluebook – Julie Davis’ supergroup continues to amaze us. We last saw them open for Marissa Nadler. Whether as a 4 piece or a 3 piece, Bluebook is a sunshine haze of fun. See our live photos here.

Cleaner – This is new group with old friends from Muscle Beach, Fast Eddy, Dirty Few, Keef Duster and Colfax Speed Queen.

Same Cloth –  Same Cloth is a versatile group led by JoFoKe and Soloman J Chapman. They caught our attention with their long residency at Dazzle.

Sophie Gray – Gray is a new singer-songwriter with a lot of buzz.

We’re also looking forward to seeing old friends: Ramhakdandra, Bellhoss, Claire Heywood, Julian St. Nightmare, Kayla Marque, Neoma, Plasma Canvas & Pink Fuzz

Pay attention to Brighton Stage Saturday at 12:15 for the local band who won the opportunity to be on the big stage care of HUDL Music Presents.
