Congrats to Katie Koivisto. She and a guest will be our guests this Sunday up at the way sold-out Rocky Mountain Folks Fest. While the prospect of seeing the Civil Wars alone would have our hearts racing and justify a trip up to Lyons just to see them, evidently Katie is going to be the total hero of her best friend, who evidently loves Carolina Chocolate Drops with "the love of a thousand Garrison Keilors," as she so eloquently put it. Have fun Katie!
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.
