The Joy Formidable
Here comes happiness
By Summer Olsson
The Joy Formidable transforms the Welsh landscape into sonic form with fuzzy guitar riffs layered over fast, heavy drum lines, with synth melodies and Ritzy Bryan’s vocals soaring over the chaos. The Joy Formidable’s U.S. tour includes a stop in New Mexico after swinging by Coachella—bringing aural Wales to the Launchpad on Wednesday, April 20.

Flyer on the Wall
Bow Down to the Dutch Hercules
Tesco Vee is the loudmouthed wiseacre who co-founded Touch and Go magazine and the subsequent record label. He’s also front sleazoid for The Meatmen, a band formed in Lansing, Mich., at the dawn of hardcore punk. He and his meaty minions will be making costume changes and dirty jokes at the Moonlight Lounge on Tuesday, April 19, at 8:30 p.m. Against The Grain opens the adults-only show, and $10 gets your degenerate form through the door.

The perfect music for a break-ups and dark nights comes from California-based rock band She Wants Revenge. They were recently featured in "American Horror Story: Hotel" in a tantalizing scene with Lady Gaga. Don't break your own heart by not seeing their 10 year anniversary show at the El Rey Theater on Oct. 29. The band's dark hypnotic sound can be heard for only $20 starting at 7pm for all ages.
