How much is that blog in the window? Absolutely free.
Backbeat Online has been action-packed today. Read live reviews of Shearwater and Wye Oak as well as Triclops and The Nod. In addition, peruse items about two Denver bands getting their vinyl on, an update about the Denver Message Board and an unintended moment of RNC-related hilarity involving (sort of) the Dixie Chicks, courtesy of Dave Herrera. Confused? He was, too.
Meanwhile, The Cat's Pajamas previews the new Bravo series Top Design and helps style-conscious students get back to basics. And Cafe Society serves up a taste of the French bistro Indulge and takes a bite out of the Spicy Pickle's Yard Bird. That takes a lot of pluck. -- Michael Roberts

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.
