The Blog Shortcut, July 8 Edition

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
