Take it as a given that you’ll have to spend Sunday in repose, feigning unconsciousness, laying about the house or something similarly relaxing. That means the next available concert interface will occur on Monday, Sept. 11. For that day, may I recommend OG crossover thrashers D.R.I. They’ll be gigging at Launchpad (618 Central NW) in what promises to be a raucous, rocking and altogether satisfying show—if you don’t bust an arm or leg trying to survive the mosh pit that will invariably rise up when these fellows from H-Town jam the fuck out. D.R.I., if rocanrol enthusiasts recall, were among the first hardcore outfits to bridge the gap between the aforementioned genre and thrash-metal. In fact, their 1987 opus, Crossover is still the definitive record in a sea of sea-changes that overtook heavy metal and punk rock in the late ‘80s. The dudes can still bring it, too as their 2016 EP, But Wait... There’s More proved with sick and solid tuneage like “Couch Slouch” and “As Seen on TV.” So, metalheads, skate punks and anyone else who digs the loud, louche and thrashy, please do use your post-crawl appreciation of rocanrol music to visit with these awesome avatars of antic anthems. It’ll only cost ya $13. This rock recital is designed for 13+ humans with an ID proving such; the ritual begins at 7:30pm.
