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

Can you believe it -- a blog shortcut published on the day that's in its headline?

If Demver was any more stuffed with content, it'd be Mr. Creosote before that wafer-thin mint. Cruise over for a DNC day-two slideshow, tips about getting into ritzy parties by posing as a member of the paparazzi, a live blog from Tent State University's Music Festival to End the War, a report about the 9/11 truth-movement believers in town, and more.

Cafe Society leads off with Jason Sheehan's jeremiad against the New York Post's Cindy Adams. Over at Backbeat Online, peruse live reviews of Willie Nelson's Red Rocks concert and an Etown bash with James Taylor, Ani DiFranco and others, plus Q&As with the great Al Green and Evan Mast of Ratatat. And The Cat's Pajamas? Nothing new as of this writing -- but that just gives you the chance to catch up on all the old stuff. -- 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.
