In 2008, a woman was brutally raped by two men. But the case remained unsolved for years, until a DNA hit led to the arrest of Connie Liphford for the crime.

New Year's Eve is packed full of amazing shows and events, but few will compare to the party that is in store at City Hall with Amon Tobin.

Toudji is originally from Kpalimé in Togo, West Africa, and he's putting on the Koffi Togo fundraiser this Saturday, ... More >>
Colorado has a rich film history. Nearly 400 movies have been shot here in more than 100 years. But, as explained in this week's cover story "The Reel West," Colorado is experiencing a bit of a film drought lately, something that lawmakers and industry folks hope to reverse. Instead of shooting in t ... More >>
Late last year,Tony Pasquini was making changes to his 25-year-old chain of pizzerias, building out a Cherry Creek address, which opened in late January, and getting ready to ink a deal for a new spot on East Colfax. At the same time, he was quietly buying back his franchises, bringing all restaura ... More >>
Correction: Bop Skizzum performs at Moe's BBQ & Bowling on New Year's Eve. An earlier version of this story included an incorrect venue. While there's plenty of action in the clubs over New Year's weekend, there are also a ton of bands playing in Denver and Boulder, and a lot of them playing multip ... More >>
In 2001, Matt Robinette sat with his wife, Roberta, brother Jonathan and sister-in-law Cristina in a Tahoe cafe, where they pondered selling Roberta's Pueblo-style green chile in California, an area of the country that wasn't familiar with the stuff. It took nearly a decade -- as well as a move back ... More >>
Yes he was.Jack Kerouac was here. He came here and wrote about it in On the Road, his most enduring work, and fell in love with Denver to the extent that, at one point, he actually bought a house in Lakewood. Yes, Kerouac was indeed here, but one thing that will not be here, apparently, is Fr ... More >>
Our bikini models don't have to wear snow boots and mittens. Because it's July.

The Suffocation piece running in this week's paper was culled from Phil Freeman's recent conversation with Terrance Hobbs of Suffocation. As with many of our other Rough Mixes features, there's far more to the story of this stalwart New York-based death metal band than there was space. As such, afte ... More >>
Breathe Carolina, a band that tours so often these days that it almost doesn't seem like a Denver band anymore (seriously, with the exception of April and May, the act is going to be on the road from now until at least the end of August; check out the list of tour dates on the next page), recently p ...

Male fulfillment, and lack thereof, is on full display in The Promotion.
The Avalanche have been very good to us. When the team arrived from Quebec in 1996, they showed up with a pair of first ballot hall-of-famers, almost immediately traded for another, won us our first major sports championship and galvanized a latent hockey base that has since become one of the most v ...
