SubRosa • Black Maria • The Ditch And The Delta • Chicharra

A Rose in the Garden of Doom

Stefan Raduta

Though the landscape has changed in recent years and metal is no longer a boy's club, the scene still isn't populated by all that many female musicians. So creep on down to Launchpad (618 Central SW) this Friday, Sept. 11, for what is going to be a female-heavy night of the region's best stoner rock, doom metal and sludge. SubRosa, arguably the kings of the Salt Lake City metal scene and fronted by a trio of women who share vocal duties—none of whom play the typically female role of bass player—have a uniquely beautiful and baroque doom sound, augmented by electric violinists Sarah Pendleton and Kim Pack, that is not to be missed. SubRosa brings their friends from Mormon country, The Ditch and The Delta, who sound like Neurosis meets old school Melvins and who released their first EP earlier in the year. Though you already have plans to hit Gordy Fest on Saturday, Friday's show gives you another opportunity to show your love and support for local musician Gordy Anderson by coming out to see his band Black Maria, Albuquerque's supra-puro stoner rock group. Chicharra, the “best triple bass band ever,” fronted by three ultra-talented badass chicks on bass and vocals, opens at 8pm. Eight bucks buys you entrance into this 21+ night of low-end sludge.
