The first ten seconds of 'Fleece,' the opening track on Shade Perennial, Bottomless Pit's mesmerizing third long player, sets the tone for the rest of the album. A carefully considered series of notes are picked on baritone guitar, deliberately unfolding the melody, only to be interrupted by a staccato burst. The guitars wrap around one another over a propulsive and elegantly understated rhythm section. Space opens in the music for a voice to emerge. It is enveloping and hypnotic, and you may play it over from the beginning a few times before moving on.

On June 6, 7, and 8, 2014, the Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities will host Rocky Flats Then and Now: 25 Years After the Raid, a multifaceted event marking the 25th Anniversary of the historic raid on the nation's only factory making the plutonium cores for nuclear bombs. For the first time ever, on June 6, 1989 two federal government agencies -- the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Environmental Protection Agency ( EPA) - raided a third - the Department of Energy (DOE). This extraordinary action symbolized a change in U.S. national government priorities to an emphasis on environmental protection at a time when the Cold War nuclear arms race was ending. But the raid on this top-secret weapons plant located just northwest of Arvada also had real, and sometimes disputed, effects on the community and on the thousands of area men and women who worked there. In 1992 President George H.W. Bush ended the Rocky Flats bomb-building mission and a years-long $7 billion environmental clean-up began. Today, most of the 6,400-acre site has been designated the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge, an environmentally protected area.
