Make like Columbus and discover some blogs -- but without committing genocide, please.
Backbeat Online ponies up live reviews featuring former Talking Heads frontman David Byrne at the Temple Buell Theater, Unearth at the Gothic Theatre, and Deerhoof at the Bluebird Theatre. How theatrical. There's also news about a reunion of The Captain and the Red Hot Flames, a Denver favorite from the '80s. Hot stuff.
Cafe Society has a lot of serving choices, too, bidding a not-so-fond farewell to Gallagher's Steak House and a much more melancholy goodbye to Valente's Italian Restaurant. You can also glance over an item about the opening of White Chocolate Grill at Park Meadows, tear into a Milking It review of Kellogg's Smorz cereal, and suck down the foamy goodness represented by the best of the Great American Beer Festival. It's intoxicating. -- Michael Roberts
