Saturday's release party for Bob Rob Medina's illustrated memoir chronicling the '80s Denver punk scene, Denvoid and the Cowtown Punks, packed Mutiny Information Cafe — and that was before most attendees found out that the Frantix were going to play.

The Frantix, who played their last show in 1983, said they got in a mere two practices before Saturday's mini-reunion. But you'd never know it by the reaction of the 100-strong crowd packed into the tiny coffee shop/record store on Broadway. Medina signed copies of the book and sold original illustrations for a mere $50 each. In attendance was a who's who of the Denver punk elite, past and present. It was the place to be Saturday, but if you missed it, the books are still available at Mutiny and at Albums on the Hill in Boulder, among other places. Check out a few photo highlights below.
