We all lost an hour of sleep on Sunday, and it's going to take a while to get used all the extra sunshine in our days. But you should be able to adjust quickly to all the free fun available this week, when you can welcome the Month of Photography, watch something new and meet a brilliant writer, filmmaker and comic. Check out the Westword calendar for more entertainment options, if drop a comment if we forgot a great free opportunity.
Heads of Hydra Underground Art-Film Nights at DADA Art Bar (7 p.m. Monday, free)
March is Month of Photography in Denver, with hundreds of events celebrating all things chrotochrome-related. At DADA tonight, not only can you see a rad photo exhibit organized by Richard Alden Peterson, but check out underground art films curated by Kim Shively, Chris Graves and others. Turn yourself on to a new visual experience at this film series happening every Monday.
Mile High Writers Series with Sherman Alexie at Regis University (7:30 p.m. Tuesday, free)
You have to RSVP to this event, but that's a small price to pay in order to hang out with Sherman Alexie, author of Reservation Blues and Blasphemy, just to name a few of the many. Hear one of the New Yorker’s top twenty writers of the 21st century tell stories and discuss his work with the audience. He does like basketball and comedy a lot— so let's hope he doesn't bring up the Nuggets. RSVP here.
Analog Opening Reception at Mike Wright Gallery (6 p.m. Thursday, free)
Another Month of Photography event, this opening reception is the ideal opportunity to socialize while seeing photographs captured in the classic method.
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.
