Backbeat Online doubles your pleasure with two blogs about the Foo Fighters -- a review of Dave Grohl's band at Red Rocks last night (the group is on the Rocks tonight as well) plus the first online appearance of Westword's original Foo review, dating to an April 1995 gig at the Mercury Cafe featuring Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder. The stars were aligned.

The Cat's Pajamas counters with Secondhand Sartorialism tips and a visit to the dark side of teen fashion. And in Cafe Society, Jason Sheehan offers a taste of his forthcoming take on Masterpiece Delicatessen and Adam Cayton-Holland saunters into a newish sandwich shop called Parsley. Garnish as necessary. -- Michael Roberts
