The Westword.com blog shortcut, August 27 edition
"I declare a toe war."
Can you believe it -- a blog shortcut published on the day that's in its headline?
If Demver was any more stuffed with content, it'd be Mr. Creosote before that wafer-thin mint. Cruise over for a DNC day-two slideshow, tips about getting into ritzy parties by posing as a member of the paparazzi, a live blog from Tent State University's Music Festival to End the War, a report about the 9/11 truth-movement believers in town, and more.
Cafe Society leads off with Jason Sheehan's jeremiad against the New York Post's Cindy Adams. Over at Backbeat Online, peruse live reviews of Willie Nelson's Red Rocks concert and an Etown bash with James Taylor, Ani DiFranco and others, plus Q&As with the great Al Green and Evan Mast of Ratatat. And The Cat's Pajamas? Nothing new as of this writing -- but that just gives you the chance to catch up on all the old stuff. -- Michael Roberts
