If you haven't seen this yet, AP has an interactive to get you up to speed on what's been happening in Egypt and its neighbors. There's lots of content there (map, video, photos, first-person audio from journalists on what they've experienced), and the timeline is updated too.

Denver packed into the Marquis for The Get Up Kids show despite the snow and slush Saturday night. Get Up Kids have a new album, "There Are Rules," but it's the punk songs from yesterday that everyone wanted to hear.

The band obliged. They mixed new songs like "Automatic" and "Rememorable" in with old favorites like "Don't Hate Me" and "Woodson." The old stuff is what got the audience throwing fists in the air, crowd surfing and singing all the words. (At one point, lead singer Matt said, "Now shut up and let me sing it!")

There was a healthy chunk of encores, and at one point, the band broke into their version of Blur's "Girls and Boys" (with Jim singing lead)

Second leg of the tour starts next, with dates in the East.
