The Blog Shortcut, July 10 Edition

Allow us to help you navigate Westword's sector of the blogosphere.

Backbeat Online is led by another tragic story for local music fans -- the death in Las Vegas of former Angellic Rage frontman Paul Stitt, who was killed during a botched robbery in Las Vegas, where he was living. Another music story with a violent twist has a happier ending -- a Q&A with Marc Cohn, who is set to play the Denver Botanic Gardens just under three years after being shot in the face following a concert there. Also on tap: live reviews of Ulrich Schnauss and A Shoreline Dream, I Was Totally Destroying It and plenty more.

Elsewhere, The Cat's Pajamas explores Sarah boutique, Demver forecasts the options if Rocky Mountain thunder (or lightning, or rain, or whatever) strikes during Barack Obama's acceptance speech, and Cafe Society hips java junkies to a fundraiser at Fluid Coffee Bar. Have a jolt. -- Michael Roberts
