Lucky '13: Sara Century from Night Nurses, Baby Hair, and Ladybug Fest

This past year has been tough for many people, and we're eager to kiss 2012 goodbye. In hopes that 2013 will turn out to be much luckier for many, we invited some of the town's cultural tastemakers -- entrepreneurs and entertainers we're lucky to have in Denver -- to answer a trio of questions. We excerpted quotes from these Q&As in the New Year's Guide inserted in the December 13 issue of Westword, but we'll be featuring the complete interviews in a series of posts through the end of the year. Next up: Sara Century.

Sara Century does everything. Her resume from 2012 alone is unbelievably impressive: Century curated Ladybug Festival in Fort Collins, co-founded female-oriented spoken word night Baby Hair, released three comic books, played in a Hole cover band at the Denver County Fair (full disclosure: with me and fellow Westword scribe Bree Davies), toured the country as a solo artist and in her band Night Nurses, and booked numerous shows for out-of-state touring bands. This Renaissance lady is constantly on her grind, putting art and music into the world and helping create a safe, inclusive community for others to release their own art. We caught up with Century amidst her many creative endeavors to talk about her whirlwind 2012 and what she's looking forward to in the new year.
