Last Friday night was a special night for the select bunch of drunks at Old Curtis Street in Denver. It marked the reunion of The Blackout Pact, after breaking up more than 2 years ago. The line-up that night was Scooter James, Anchor Down, Esprit de Corps and The Blackout Pact.

Fronted by the gravely vocals of Mike Herrera (Sleeper Horse, Tin Horn Prayer), the entire place exploded on the first song. Mike sang most of the songs either in or on the crowd. The tiny stage was packed with friends and people singing along with fists in the air. All in all, it was a great night and reminded me of going to house parties and basement punk shows. Stay tuned for upcoming news about The Pact.

Mike, doing what he does best... singing his heart out.

Casey Yunko (Only Thunder) says "You're #1 guys!"

Josh Friedman with the deranged super-fan look of a 12 year old girl.

Friends for life... that's what it's all about.

Scooter James... with some bad-ass new jams.
