Things to do in Denver Aug. 11: Talk, laugh, dance and show off your smarts

Have you never been wrong? Did you used to work at the record store? Did you have everything before anyone?

Have you never been wrong? Did you used to work at the record store? Did you have everything before anyone?

Sounds like you ought to be at music trivia tonight. It’s returning to Fort Greene, 321 E. 45th Ave. in Globeville.

And it sounds right up your alley. I heard you have a compilation of every good song ever done by anybody. Every great song by the Beach Boys. All the underground hits. All the Modern Lovers tracks.

So gather your a team of your most relevant friends and get there before it starts at 8 p.m., if you want. (But you don’t know what you really want.)


Over at Mutiny Information Café, 2 S. Broadway, Kayvan Khalatbari will be talking shop.

A founder of Sexpot Comedy, weed advocate and activist, Khalatbari will be the focus of the Talkin’ Shop Q&A at 7 p.m. 


And back up on the roof at the Museum of Contemporary Art, B-Side Thursdays continue with Male Blonding and Plume Varia.

The post-punk and dream-pop bands (respectively) will perform at 6 p.m. It’s free with the price of admission, which is $5 after 5 p.m.
