We've got so damn much new content today that as soon as I finish writing this blog, I'm taking the rest of the day off.
Backbeat Online brings you live reviews of Nick Warren at Beta, as well as a Rhinoceropolis gig featuring BDRMPPL and Pictureplane, joined by Josephine and the Mousepeople, Gangi and Rainbow Arabia; a Q&A with Deerhoof's Satomi Matsuzaki; and our regular Friday Rap-Up. Put your hands in the air, and wave 'em like you want to share.
Cafe Society is fully loaded, too. Read a Candy Girls review about Halloween munchables; details about the Bagali's Italian Kitchen opening in Broomfield; a Finlandia search for Denver's best bartenders; a report from the Great American Beer Festival; and cooking tips from James Carville. As far as we can tell, they're bipartisan. -- 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.
