The fifteen most eye-grabbing posters of the week in Denver, August 20 through August 27

082612_RISE.jpg

If you're up early, you've probably already noticed that we put the paddles to Heavy Rotation and brought that feature back to life. We've done the same with another dormant feature, Flier of the Week. Starting today, we'll once again be paying tribute to the tried and true, time-tested method of promoting shows. This past week, we made our way around town and captured the eye candy taped to windows and affixed to light posts across the city at places like 3 Kings Tavern, Sputnik, Twist & Shout, Wax Trax and Beauty Bar. If there's a flier you think merits inclusion, break out your camera phone, fire off a shot and send it us, along with a note of where you saw it, and we'll consider it for next week. In the meantime, continue reading to see this week's posters.

Okay, admittedly, this is a bit outside of the Backbeat wheelhouse, but we spied it at a music-related event (the Colorado Music Hall of Fame induction ceremonial dinner, which was fab, by the way, in case you haven't heard), and that sort of counts, right?

Every week, in an effort to pay tribute to those dedicated to the time tested way of promoting shows by hanging up posters, we make our way around the Mile High City to take a gander at all the eye candy affixed to light posts and such. Here are the fliers we spotted this week on our trip through the city. If there's a flier you think deserves to be included here, break out your camera phone, fire off a shot and send it to us -- and be sure to tell us where you saw it.

Don't tear yourself apart looking for a show this week.
Our weekly salute to promoters who keep their feet on the street and their fingers away (at least partially) from Facebook to promote their concerts, Flier of the Week has morphed into Fliers of the Week, a collection of fliers we spotted around town for live music this week. If you have a flier that caught your eye or if you created one that you'd like to submit for consideration, send a photograph of the real thing (phone photos are OK) to this e-mail with "Show Flier" as the subject line. Check out this week's fliers below.
