Backbeat Online introduces "Scratch and Dent," a new column by acclaimed singer-songwriter John Common. For his first effort, he looks back on his stint in the KISS Army. Gene Simmons wants you -- but that's no surprise. Also new: "Saving Grace," which finds the one nugget on an otherwise exercrable album -- in this case, Bob Dylan's Self-Portrait. And there's a live review of The Ideal Fathers, too.

The Cat's Pajamas invites you to a Sweet Summer Sample Sale, eyeballs some trendy Colfaxers and catches participants in this week's Henry awards looking particularly fetching. In Cafe Society, the Candy Girls share their innermost thoughts about a chocolate therapist. And in Demver, confessed Obama supporter Sean Cronin finds something to like about a John McCain ad. See -- we can all get along. -- 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.
