The blog shortcut, October 1 edition

David Berman of Silver Jews.

A new month; a new shortcut.

Backbeat Online offers music for your eyes: a Q&A with Silver Jews' David Berman, a This Just In concert update, word of a new locally oriented show on Alice/105.9 FM, and a slideshow of Horse the Band at the Marquis. Say "neigh," not "nay."

Cafe Society is ready to serve, too. Read about Jason Sheehan's bad night at Boulder's Tahona, a colorful piece about Denver's green chile, a taste from Cook's Fresh Market, and the closing of Larimer Square's Open Bar. If it hadn't already been shuttered, they'd have to change its name... -- Michael Roberts
