For a while I had hope that the local rock scene was expanding past its Downtown locus. Duke City Sound Stage (2013 Ridgecrest Dr SE), an all-ages venue at the southeast end of one of Burque’s most chief neighborhoods—that’s my hood, yo—had a whole bunch of rock shows catering to all-ages; they’re the joint where prolific but short-lived local wunderkinder Five Mile Float began their meteoric Albuquerque ascent. Then they stopped having shows there. Five Mile Float disappeared too. Though the latter hasn’t magically reappeared, the folks at DCSS are throwing hootenannies again. Good for them. On Thursday, Oct. 5, the emo-flavored, pop-punk band of the week is Life Lessons, outta OKC. Right On, Kid!, a local outfit with a similar sonic persuasion provide support. The Countdown and Call It Quits open. It’s $10 to get in to a gig that goes off at 7pm. If you go, just be respectful and quiet when you leave; I live right down the street. And whatever you do, stay off the grass, okay?
