It's been a couple months since its release, but the double-disc Rocky Mountain Low
compilation--an exhaustive overview
of the Front Range punk scene of the late '70s, including a rare pre-Dead Kennedys track by a young Jello Biafra, back when he was a long-haired Boulder kid named Eric Boucher--is getting an official launch party. On Sunday, August 16, the comp's creators, Dalton Lawrence Rasmussen and Joseph Pope, will throw a listening party at Wax Trax at 3 p.m. Both Rasmussen and Pope will be on hand to answer questions about their vital, compelling, and thoroughly kick-ass document of Denver punk's largely forgotten founding fathers (and mothers). Look for a chat with the comp's creators in Backbeat closer to the 16th.
