The blog shortcut, September 22 edition

The Purple Fluid.

Westword's other blogs are pipin' hot.

Backbeat Online features an on-site report from Wax Trax's 30th anniversary celebration, complete with a reunion of the Fluid and a set by the Purple Fluid, co-starring the sons of Fluid guitarist Rick Kulwicki. The next generation appears to be in good shape. Also on tap: Dave Herrera's rave about the latest from Margot and the Nuclear So and So's.

The Cat's Pajamas quizzes student Zed Ireland for a Secondhand Sartorialism report. And Cafe Society offers a full menu. Column A contains news of the Solar Vegetarian Cafe's impending launch and the grand opening at Seven Cups tea house. And in column B, look for info about Duy Pham's new project in Pueblo and a Milking It review of Barbie as The Island Princess cereal. It's closer to enchanting than you'd think. -- Michael Roberts
