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

Papa's got some brand new blogs.

Backbeat Online introduces you to Chain Gang of 1974, which has just been named the opening act of 3Oh!3's first-ever national headlining tour, and offers a live review of Eyedea & Abilities. It's good stuff no matter how you spell it. The Cat's Pajamas takes a shine to silver jeans, while Demver digs up audio implying that those no-obligation Barack Obama acceptance-speech tickets may have strings attached and unveils some bizarre Obama "art". Finally, Cafe Society muses about alcohol and other reasons to be happy on Larimer Street. The proof is in the bottle. -- Michael Roberts

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.
