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

A-blogging we shall go...

Backbeat Online features an interview with Circle Jerks frontman Keith Morris, who reveals that his band won't be at an August 22 Red Rocks show because he's recovering after falling into a near-fatal diabetic coma. Also on tap: The Flobots' response to an unsympathetic critic, as well as live reviews of the Shuffletones and an Adventure Records release party, featuring thoroughly uncommon Backbeat blogger John Common.

Meanwhile, The Cat's Pajamas lauds thrifting at Lorraine's house (read it and you'll understand), and Cafe Society gets ready for a new Tony's Market and dives into Cap'n Crunch Treasure Hunt Crunch cereal. It turns your milk the color of Windex: mmmmmmm.

And over at Demver? More grumbling (from yours truly) about Obama ticketing, not to mention DIA preparing for its DNC close-up. Smile pretty. -- 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.
