The Super Bowl will soak up most of the shine on Sunday, and to that, we say Go Broncos! But there are plenty of other ways to have fun as well that don't involve football. This weekend we're cheering on puppies, having some giggles and dancing to the beat of various drums. For even more events, smash that Westword calendar button.

Artist Discussion with Joel Swanson at Museum of Outdoor Arts (2 p.m. Saturday, free)
Technology grows by leaps and bounds every day, and art is always looking to do the same thing. Joel Swanson is keeping his feet in both worlds by using 3D printing technology.

The light rail will drop you right where you need to be, so go find out how he uses future tools for art today.    

Mile High Soul Club at Syntax Physic Opera (9 p.m. Saturday, $5)
They do this once a month because it keeps things funky. Call up the squad and then popcorn or mashed-potato your way down to south Broadway. Special guest DJ Reed Wolf, of SpeedWolf fame, will spin the vinyl just as good as he sings the rock-n-roll.

Green Druid at Goosetown Tavern (9 p.m. Saturday, free)
On the flip side of shimmying to the soul music, is all out head banging amp worship. Green DruidMatriarch and Earthen Tongue will crank the doom riffs up to eleven without you having to paying a cover. Grab a couple brews and rock on out.
