After a few months renovating the former Triangle Denver space at 2036 Broadway, former 15th Street Tavern owners Myke Martinez and Kris Sieger, and 3 Kings Tavern owner Jim Norris are set to celebrate the Rockaway Tavern's grand opening on Friday, August 13. Supersuckers frontman Eddie Spaghetti will be performing with members of the Railbenders, and will be joined on the bill by Reno Divorce and Martinez's band, Grease Machine. On Saturday night, Git Some celebrates its new Alternative Tentacles release, Loose Control. Here's a sneak preview of what's in store. The first thing you'll see after coming in the door. The front room is an homage to the 15th Street Tavern. The tables are topped with fliers that date back to the '80s and include punk shows by the Dead Kennedys, Misfits, Minor Threat, All and Husker Du. The view from the sound booth. This Pontiac Firebird hood will be the backdrop for the DJ booth on the back patio.
