"The thing I'm looking forward to the most is the Fucked Up seven-inch single," Davis says, referring to the infamous Canadian hardcore band that played a riotous set at Wax Trax last year. "They're releasing ten different covers for the same record, and they asked a number of record stores to send in photos to use. So I sent a photo of a little girl with spiky hair that I took at Kennedy's Warehouse [a Denver punk venue in the 80s]."
In addition, Davis and crew are hosting a live show featuring local punk, metal and indie-rock bands, including Tauntaun, Accordion Crimes, Speedwolf and Ideal Fathers; Tauntaun will even release a seven-inch of its own, The Murderauder Rides, to commemorate the celebration.
The Wax Trax Record Store Day party goes down today from 2 to 6 p.m. at the shop's corner location, 638 East 13th Avenue. The all-ages event is free; for info, call 303-831-7246 or visit www.myspace.com/waxtraxdenver.
