Tomorrow night at 3 Kings Tavern, a cavalcade of current and bygone Denver acts and musicians will be on hand to celebrate the life of Wendi Wikstrand, aka Grandma Dynamite, a very dear friend of mine and the scene, who passed away at the end of October. Slated to appear on the bill are Hellafied Funk Crew, Blister 66, Hippie Werewolves, Rocket Ajax, Sick, Horse, Lola Black, Death Valley Pom Squad, Digg, Throbbing Pink Jesus, Sloan Valve and Assault. Doors are at 5 p.m. Cover is $10, with all proceeds going to benefit the Brain Injury Association of Colorado. -- Dave Herrera
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.
