Turn an ear -- and an eye -- to the fresh content available from Westword's blog quintet.
Demver reveals the connection between a local activist and Crosby, Stills & Nash. It's a new take on conventional wisdom. Backbeat Online offers a Beyond Playlist post with extended reviews of recordings by artists ranging from BLK JKS to Clay Aiken -- and that's a mighty wide range. Cafe Society invites you to sample some frozen yogurt with the Candy Girls. And The Cat's Pajamas gets to the bottom of an in-ground septic tank that liquefies pet waste in an environmentally friendly way. That's one way of turning brown into green. -- 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.
