Love + Hate Fest at Illegal Pete's (Tuesday) Celebrate the Denver Diatribe's 100th episode tonight with drinks, burritos and tons of entertainment and prizes. Comedians Nathan Lund, Kevin O'Brien and Adam Cayton-Holland will perform; there will also be music from Lizzie Huffman, Chella Negro, the Epilogues' Chris Heckman and more. Come to see the performances and record your own love or hate rant -- it could be featured on the podcast.
Bring Your Own Records Party at Lost Lake (Wednesday) Tired of lame DJs who never play the hits you wanna hear? Good news: Westword MasterMind Sarah Slater's BYO Records party is back. At this fun even, you -- and anyone else with records -- can step up to the turntables as the DJ. Just bring three to five songs on vinyl, sign up when you get there, and hear your favorites through the P.A. It's sure to be a DJ night full of all kinds of diverse music choices that you normally don't get to hear in a bar.
Together, Now at the Philip J. Steele Gallery (Thursday, free) Twice a year, the Rocky Mountain College of Art + Design's faculty members exhibit their own work in a show that is always full of interesting art. This season's, entitled Together, Now, will feature 32 faculty members from all over the college. Go to the opening reception tonight to see what they have to offer and -- and, with any luck, enjoy some free refreshments.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
