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

Need more bloggery? We've got plenty.

Backbeat Online lends an ear to a gig co-starring Littles Paia, Slight Harp, Bird Names, Sic Alps and Milton Melvin Croissant III. Expect prose that melts in your mouth. Cafe Society dishes out dish about Mel's in Greenwood Village, and The Cat's Pajamas brushes up on a salon called Big Hairy Monster. It's a close shave. Finally, Demver reveals why Invesco Field at Mile High won out over Coors Field as a location for Barack Obama's acceptance speech and lists the items you won't see at the American Presidential Experience, an exhibit coming to town just in time for the DNC. It's bad news for folks hoping to eyeball the back-up set of George Washington’s false teeth with MO DOLLAZ spelled out in diamonds. -- 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.
