Pancakes and punk

How about some bacon with that mohawk? This Sat., Aug 24, one of Durango’s beloved but alas short-lived underground traditions of yore returns. Punk Rock Breakfast moshes into J. Bo’s starting at 9 a.m.

The event, which old schoolers may recall from its Storyville and Thirteens heyday, was resurrected by local woman, Ann Potter. This will be the third PRB (not to be confused with PBR, of which many will likely be consumed) she has put on.

Bands include Molly Nixons, Profetic Calaveras, Hardly Cant’s, Timothy Hallow and Q&A.

Leave it to the folks in Aspen to elevate even the lowliest of mountain wear to new fashion heights. Take the humble jort, a staple on local trails since, well, at least Chad Cheeney moved here in the ’90s. Introducing the world’s first “action sport jort,” made with technical fabric to bring that “I-give-zero-effs” attitude to any outdoor adventure while supplying that all important stretch and secret anti-chafing properties to the underside.
