Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Last night on I-25 as Del the Funky Homosapien (aka Teren Delvon Jones) and his crew were making their way up from Colorado Springs to Denver for a scheduled show tonight at the Larimer Lounge, an Escalade reportedly driven by a drunk driver, rear-ended the crew. Although Del and company escaped major injuries, Del, who was sleeping at the time of impact, suffered whiplash, as did another member of his crew. Understandably, Del will not be appearing tonight, but will return to Denver for a make-up date on Friday, November 6. No word yet on whether Opio and Bukue 1 will perform this evening as scheduled, but rest of the bill is still intact, with ManeLine, Whygee, Gyp Da Hi, Chou Tanoshii, DJs Klaw and Mu$a still appearing as scheduled. Tonight's show is free and the bar will have PBRs for a buck.
