Danksgiving 2015 • Mondo Vibrations • Dre Z • Pocket Full Of Dub
By Maggie Grimason
Work up some post-Thanksgiving munchies or dance off your food guilt this week at Danksgiving 2015. Captaining the musically mind-expanding adventure will be the blazing reggae-rock of Mondo Vibrations. The talented pack of Burquenos is well-known in the downtown circuit of music venues and consists of Kenny Cernius (vocals/guitar), Shea Longi (bass), Kevin Sanchez (drums), James Sanchez (percussion), Mike Gerdes (guitar/synths) and Rick “Smirie” Gonzales (vocals/guitar/keys/melodica). Also on deck for the night will be the chill melodies of Dre Z, the stylings of Burque Sol and Pocket Full of Dub, to boot. Take your Friday night to a higher level for just $5 at Launchpad, where things will get lit at 9pm.

Vampires Everywhere! • rock • Consider Me Dead • Set to Stun
By August March
Metalcore masters Vampires Everywhere! will be rising from their decrepit coffins for a gig at The Co-Op on Tuesday, Dec. 1. The project of Michael Orlando, VE! are proponents of a sick sound that craftily combines aspects of goth, industrial and horror punk into a smotheringly propulsive sonic experience that can be freaky and frightening or acutely alluring depending on the internal chemical composition of each of their millions of stunned listeners. Check out the video for “Drug of Choice” for further evidence of the outfit's crepuscular commitments. Arizona electro-popsters Consider Me Dead and “post-sci-fi hardcore” trio Set To Stun (from El Lay of course) open. This all ages show at an alcohol- and drug-free venue costs $13 and begins at 6pm.
