Welcome to a new Latest Word feature: The Westword.com Best of the Blogs. As the latest edition of Westword is hitting the streets and the web, we wanted to provide an easy way for you to catch up with the top bloggery from the past week. And here it is.
At Backbeat Online, find live reviews of concerts big and small, complete with killer photographs -- including those that adorn critiques of Nine Inch Nails and the Foo Fighters, both of which headlined at Red Rocks. And don't miss our roster of the summer's top ten concerts, complete with a slideshow that illustrates our choices.
In Cafe Society, we told you about an off-kilter campaign by Marczyk Fine Foods and an encounter with spitting bachelorettes at Cuba Cuba. And The Cat's Pajamas shares a Crocs diss from the New Yorker and a style salute to Michelle Obama. Oh mama.

And The Latest Word? Look over the official explanation for the demise of beloved radio station KCUV, the Denver Post's insertion of a Sarah Palin photo into a spread about a tragic ice-cream store crash, Adam Cayton-Holland's ribald blogging advice for former first daughter Monica Owens and two sports-related video fests from Joe Tone -- and roundup of footage featuring terrifying Oakland Raiders fans prior to their stomping by the Broncos and his choice for winners in the drunkest NFL fans playoffs. You'll learn who will sip from the Lombardi Trophy -- until they're blotto. -- Michael Roberts
