No one can argue that Denver loves its outdoor events — or any excuse to imbibe outdoors in the daytime. Yet the Westword Music Showcase offered more than the chance to simply satiate such pleasures.

In its 17th year, it proved to be the perfect fusion of outdoors, drinking and, most importantly, live music — another Denver summer passion. A laundry list of bands performed throughout the day around the Golden Triangle neighborhood in more than a dozen venues, mostly indoors, just south of downtown. The tightly-packed celebration of diverse local music also featured national headliners, food trucks and a colorful crush of humanity.

Reverb photographer Quoleena Sbrocca caught up with the thousands who came down for the event, chronicling the mostly young, hip crowd trying to stay cool in the mid-June weather.
