Tickets are still available for next week’s Denver Press Club Gridiron Show.
Who’ll be on stage? Gov. John Hickenlooper and his band will make their annual appearance. Longtime DPC member and new Denver City Council member Kevin Flynn has written a song to the tune of Canned Heat’s “Let’s Work Together” that he’ll perform.
Rep. Jonathan Singer and other state legislators will perform one song. And the core cast: Edie Sonn, Cynthia Rose, Ruth Darling-Goldberg, Cynthia Hessin, Bruce Goldberg, Tom Corona and newcomer Phil James. Plus Hank Troy on piano and Julia Hays on violin. Fred Brown will serve as emcee.
The songs will skewer such topics as Donald Trump, Tom Brady, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, the Animas River spill, Hillary Clinton, presidential candidates, RTD’s train to DIA and more.
It’s been a bad week for the Olympics. Boston bailed on them, China and Kazakstan are the only two countries that want the 2022 Winter Olympics, and now the Associated Press reports:
“Athletes in next year’s Summer Olympics (in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil) will be swimming and boating in waters so contaminated with human feces that they risk becoming violently ill and unable to compete in the games.”
