Friday Part II

Blue Öyster Cult

I'll admit, I still listen to FM radio. A lot. Like when I'm driving around town or trying to get some shut-eye at five in the morning. And whenever “(Don't Fear) the Reaper” by Blue Öyster Cult slithers out of the loudspeakers in my car or home office, I change the channel. I like the song fine, but because it's been so overplayed in the last hundred thousand years, I reckon that I just can't take the tune's cow bell-laced, thanatos-loving proclamations anymore. On the other hand, on the very rare occasions when I'm graced with a broadcast version of “Black Blade” by the same band, I crank it up to 11 and sit back to listen to one of the best metal songs ever. It's no surprise that legendary sci-fi writer Michael Moorcock helped write the lyrics to this and a couple of other of BÖC's finest tunes. Burqueños will get a chance to decide which side of the band's proclivities—radio friendly or obscurantist—they fall upon when BÖC invades Isleta Resort and Casino (11000 Broadway SE) on Friday, Jan. 20. Tickets range in price from $20-25 for this 21+ rock recital. What the hell, for that kinda price you might as well be there when the dudes in the band break out freakin' “Godzilla” while admonishing you not to fear death because it's so damn cool.
