Pitch Invasion

Comprising veterans of Denver's punk-rock scene, the Pitch Invasion took its name from the phenomenon of a crowd at a soccer game getting unruly and invading the field, also known as "the pitch," and taking events into its own hands. Last year, the band — made up of Mike McCrory and Shane Henry of Front-side Five; Joey Chaos and Timmy Aldworth, formerly of Johnny Eager; and frontman Jim Yelenick, formerly of Jet Black Joy and Negative Man — released its debut, Live to Regret, which features songs that manage to make poppy punk rock seem relevant again. The tunes are melodic without losing the rawness, aggression and sense of mayhem aimed at the angst of the inner adolescent in all of us.
