The Grawlix Episode 32 at The Bug Theatre (Friday, $10)
When the members of the Grawlix aren't out doing comedy all over the country, they come home to host one of Denver's most notoriously entertaining nights. This special episode of the live show sees all three comedians on stage together for the first time in a long time, along with special guests Nathan Lund from The Fine Gentleman's Club, David Huntsberger from the Professor Blastoff podcast and comedian Ian Douglas Terry from Omaha. Plus, they've got a special guest up their collective sleeve, and knowing these guys, it is someone worth a trip to the charming Bug Theatre in the Navajo Art District.
Holy Underground Block Party at Larimer Lounge and various venues (Friday, $10)
Tonight for just ten bucks, you can catch some of Denver's best and brightest acts -- like Shady Elders, Men In Burka, DJ Musa and more. Enjoy music at multiple venues along the newly revived strip while checking out everything Larimer Street has to offer -- like the recently established but already very popular Cold Crush lounge and venue -- in a block-party atmosphere. As an added bonus, a portion of the ticket sales go to helping Colorado acts get to the annual CMJ Music Marathon in New York this October.
This monthly event always brings something unexpected to the museum, with a host of late-night guest stars and activities. Tonight local chefs prepare food for a communal meal on the plaza while the museum celebrates the closing of its summer exhibition, Spun. In keeping with the harvest theme, Untitled guests also get to take home a piece of the massive, coral reef crochet project that, thanks to the Ladies Fancywork Society and local crafters, has been growing all summer long.
Handmade in Colorado Expo at Skyline Park (Friday and through the weekend, free)
Catch some sun (we hope) at Skyline Park this weekend while checking out the work of Colorado's best crafters. Find wearable art, pottery, woven items and more at this outdoor showcase while enjoying food and drinks from local eateries and food trucks, and meet the people behind the pieces.
The 2nd Annual Spirits of Colorado Paranormal Convention at the Hotel St. Nicholas in Cripple Creek (Saturday, $10 pre-registration)
If getting deep into the spirit world is your thing, this day-long event is for you. With psychic readings, lectures on near=death and out-of-body experiences and even a midnight morgue séance, the gathering of like-minded ghost hunters and spirit experts is a great way to experience a new dimension. Activities run through the day at various prices, and those brave enough are invited to rent a room at the hotel for a ghost-friendly slumber party.
