Denver punk reunion (1978 - 1988) changes venues

If you were a punk between the years of 1978 and 1988 in Denver, you're an OG. We all owe you a tremdous debt of gratitude and respect. You helped build this here scene that is so thriving today. Hell, many of us weren't even a twinkle in our daddy's eye back then. For those who were around back then, the old gang's getting back together for old time's sake this weekend, on Saturday, August 15. Of course, you already know that. What you may not have heard, however, is that the venue has changed to Bender's Tavern for the evening's festivities, while the afternoon barbecue will be taking place at Jen Ghioldi's place in Englewood. Reach out to her for all the details and directions. Last year's reunion, which took place at the Continental Club (now One Eyed Jack's), was, from the looks of it, very well attended. So we're assuming this one will be equally as packed and just as good a time.
