In an effort to get prepared for Showcase, we proved that Thursday really is the new Friday

The lineup for this weekend's Westword Music Showcase is pretty extensive. In fact, if you're unprepared it can be overwhelming. With this notion in mind, we put ourselves through a practice run for Showcase and hit every show we could last night. From Funky Buddha, where the work-out started, to the Bluebird Theatre where it finished (click through for a full photo rundown), we got quite a workout and now feel sufficiently prepared to get our Showcase on.

Turns out, Thursday really is the new Friday.

As mentioned, the evening started out at Funky Buddha , where Franky Groove was spinning some dance tracks in the upstairs bar and B Money was getting his set prepped for the entire night. Since we started the night so early, the crowds hadn't really started to pile in yet. Just the same, B Money and Groove were spinning some good hip-hop and dance.

Rockstar Lounge didn't have a soul in it at 9:30 p.m., and since Denver apparently hits the town way after that, we weren't able to photograph any talent or crowds at this venue.

Sutra was getting rocked by the Recon Crew and DJ Soleil, who happened to have a birthday last night and was planning to celebrate, apparently, by spinning with everyone and their mother. Disorder was priming the front room and Soleil was playing around on the tables in the back with Cory Scott.
