Chuck Potashner will always be awesome to us, even if he now calls San Diego his home. As you probably know, this past February, the mastermind behind teamAWESOME! picked up stakes and moved back to his native San Diego. Although he's been gone almost a year now, we miss Chuck, and he misses us, particularly since he hasn't been able to find many likeminded musicians to play with on the West Coast. "It's hard to find musicians in San Diego that want to play anything besides '80s throwback punk and Nirvana-esque reverb tunes," he reports. "Nothing against Nirvana... but it had it's time and place." Fortunately, he still has a stockpile of music recorded from his time in Denver, the one he's blessed us with called "The Point!" and three others that have yet to be released. A classic teamAWESOME! tune, dependably poppy and quirky in all the right places, "The Point!" was recorded by Mike Yach at a studio in Boulder and features an veritable all-star Denver lineup: Logan Corcoran (Bad Weather California) on drums, Anthea Osguthorpe (antz) on trumpet, Val (Night Of Joy) on bass, Cole Rudy (Wetlands) on guitar and Rachel Leber on vocals. Oh, Chuck, how we miss thee.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
