Queen City Companion
Thursday, September 6, 8 to 10 p.m. Mutiny Information Cafe
Though the charm of its public-radio namesake has diminished considerably in the wake of the creepy allegations (and mealy-mouthed atonement) of Garrison Keillor, Mutiny Transmissions' Queen City Companion remains a steadfast sonic buffet of Denver's most engaging literary and comedic personalities. Delegated to relatively new co-hosts Jen Kolic and Brian Flynn (who took over for the show's perpetually over-committed progenitor, Christie Buchele), Queen City Companion continues its monthly celebration of oddball storytelling with guests Beth Davies-Stofka, Tara Shea Burke, Cody Spyker and a new feature called "Lord Humphrey Sliptickle's Victorian Erotica." Visit Mutiny Information Cafe's Facebook events page for more information.
