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

Hey! Only five more days to the weekend! Yes!

As for the one that just ended, it was a busy one for Westword, which canvassed the city to bring you continuing coverage of Weird and Colorful Stuff.

The journey began Friday, at the grand opening of Wish nightclub (above), the new club from local promoter Kevin Larsons, heretofore known for his lavish fetish balls. Kim Berkey crashed the party, and took her camera with her.

Also Friday, Tom Murphy ventured to the Brooks Arts Center to bask in the soundscape of Microphones and some wonderfully weird Japanese music. He reviews the show on the Backbeat blog.

Saturday, Murphy shook the anime-cobwebs from his head and cruised to Larimer Lounge, for Mourning Sickness and The Silver Cord. His mind was sufficiently blown.

And, because she loves hot pink so much, Kim Berky infiltrated Saturday's Punk Rock Fashion Show at Benders Tavern.

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.
