Westword: Talkin Shop w/ Ben Roy A Best Free Event This Week

Free for All: The Five Best Free Events in Denver This Week

BY BYRON GRAHAM OF DENVER WESTWORD

Between the Biennial of the AmericasCRUSH and the city’s already vibrant cultural life, Denver is so loaded with festivals, concerts, screenings, openings and shows that it would be impossible for even the busiest bees to catch more than a fraction of them. But what good is a busy calendar when your pocketbook is still recovering from the monthly onslaught of bills? Once again, Denver’s creatives feel your pain — many of them are broke, too — so they’re hosting a number of delightfully free events all week along. Hit the streets for the CRUSH Denver street-art festival, talk shop with a local comedy legend, or boogie the weekend away to Cuban music, all without having to come up with cover charges. Keep reading for the five best free events in Denver this week, listed in chronological order.

Talkin’ Shop with Ben Roy
Thursday, September 14, 7 p.m.
Mutiny Information Cafe

While Anthony Crawford of the Talkin’ Shop podcast doesn’t typically double down on guest appearances, he’s making a wholly justifiable exception this week as inaugural shop-talker Ben Roy returns to Mutiny Information Cafe for another wide-ranging discussion of his experiences navigating the entertainment industry. Since Crawford and Roy first sat down a couple years ago, Roy has toured with his band SPELLS, co-created and starred in two more seasons of Those Who Can’t for TruTV, and appeared on @Midnight and Talk Show the Game Show, all while enduring tremendous private struggles. The loquacious Roy is as reliably honest and fearless in the lower key of an interview as he is on stage in full madman mode. Tweet your questions to @TalkinShopPod or show up to Mutiny at 7 p.m. on Thursday, September 14, and grill him yourself. Visit Sexpot Comedy online to learn more and browse the podcast archives.
