Our blog inventory is going through the roof.
Backbeat Online is full to bursting with content, including a couple of live reviews that slipped past yesterday's Shortcut -- Smaug at PT's Club Inferno and a roundup from the Summit Jazz Weekend. These items are joined by fresh critiques of Sigur Rós at Red Rocks, The New Year at Larimer Lounge and James at the Ogden, details about Sharon Rawles' memorial service, and a 3Oh!3 sighting in the pages of Entertainment Weekly magazine. Looks like the boys have the music biz's number -- or vice versa.
Cafe Society has a full plate, too. Jason Sheehan talks to Jim Sullivan about the demise of Ocean and Nine75 -- plus there's scoop about Mateo's new co-owner and new look and the greening of Denver's restaurant scene. Apparently, these are the salad days. -- 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.
