Say so long to June at a free event that will send you into July with plenty of positive vibes — or just go for some easy laughs. Either way, you've got options this week, and you'll find even more on the online Westword calendar. And if we missed any bargains, drop us a comment.
Yes to Love, Boulder 2015 at Glenn Miller Ballroom (6 p.m. Wednesday, free)
Could you use an extra dose of positivity in your life? The kick-off event for the Yes to Love festival will be an evening of live new-age music, chants and a public discourse by Brazilian spiritual master and humanitarian Sri Prem Baba. Activities continue through the week; click here for the full festival lineup.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit at Aspen Grove (7 p.m. Wednesday, free)
Aspen Grove, our Best Outdoor Mall, just keeps getting better with new stores like Tattered Cover and fun community activities. Tonight the center is hosting an outdoor showing of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, which will be particularly enjoyable because they'll be pouring Breckenridge Brewery beer, with the proceeds going to the Humane Society of the South Platte Valley. BYO folding chair.
Talkin SHOP with Sam Tallent at Mutiny Information Cafe (7 p.m. Thursday, free)
What a time to be a comedy nerd in this city! Denver is full of great comedy nights, including Anthony Crawford's Talkin Shop series, which features comedians who excel at their craft. Tonight's show will take you inside the mind of popular comic Sam Tallent, who will share how he comes up with all those jokes. You'll learn a lot and laugh even more.
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.
