Headbangers Ball

You know Burque is a metal town, right? It’s not just this burg, either. From New Mexico to Norway, travel a few hundred miles in any direction, and you’ll probably run into a gang of long-haired youths banging their heads and grinding axes in community centers and rural roadhouses—growling portentously over the calamity that awaits us in this life or the next. This stark brand of rock and roll deviltry favors extreme climates and grows abundantly out here in the Southwest.

When the Under the Mountain Tour crashes into Launchpad (618 Central SW) tonight at 9pm, a new crop of regionally grown metal explodes onstage in seizure-inducing quantities. OKC death metal legend Dischordia headlines the aural onslaught, with local heavies End to End and Echoes of Fallen adding thunderous support. Laguna, N.M.-based rock heroes Defleshment open the proceedings. Tickets are only five clams, and if you survive, you can tell folks at work what “headbangers ball” really means, if they don't already know.
