Westword Music Showcase returned last Saturday to Denver's Golden Triangle neighborhood. The event hosted more than 75 bands at a dozen venues -- including two outdoor main stages.
This year featured blistering rock from Boulder trio The Velveteers, experimental R&B from Sur Ellz and a memorable solo set from Joe Sampson. Headliners Shakey Graves and Cut Copy drew large crowds on a cool summer night in Colorado.
CPR's OpenAir staff was on-site at this year's Showcase. Below, browse our photos from last weekend's festivities.
