Music

Hello, Saturday Night!

SOR All-Stars and Wavves are featured

Head on downtown to take advantage of the amazingly audacious variety of live music happening in clubs on Central between First Street and Sixth Street tonight!
There's plenty of action from rap to rock and beyond, but these are the two events that caught my attention.

The Co-Op (415 Central NW) presents a concert by students from the School of Rock. Albuquerque SOR operator Robert Montoya told Weekly Alibi this show features School of Rock students from all over the planet, saying, "There are seven different touring groups that are starting in different cities around the country. Team Five Touring Group had their dress rehearsal at the Co-Op on Friday and will play a full show along with our ABQ School of Rock House Band to kick off their tour! They play Denver and Red Rocks next, then Omaha, Neb. and DeKalb, Kansas before ending up at Lollapalooza in Chicago on July 28."

The SOR Tour kicks off at 6pm at the Co-Op, Tickets cost $10 online or at the door. All ages are welcome.

After you've caught a glimpse of the next generation, troop your rocked out form over to Launchpad (618 Central SW) to check out one of the premier, genre-defining bands of this age. In case you wanna know, they are called Wavves and they are from Califas. Totally worth it, totally talented and totally kings of the beach.

It will cost $17 to interact with this beachy slice of the California Republic and members of the public over the age of 13 are invited to do so. Doors are at 8pm; the gig's at 9pm.

The Daily Word in Drones, Democracy and Roach Milk

The Daily Word

The first government-approved drone delivery happened Friday. A 7-11 delivered a chicken sandwich, donuts and hot coffee by way of drone. That's one small step ...

Wikileaks has been releasing the controversial Clinton emails, and the newest batch seems to be evidence that the Democratic National Convention was already looking for ways to discredit Sanders before any votes had even come in. Democracy in action!

The only adolescent detox clinic in New Mexico is shutting down, showing once again just how little we care about the youth in this state.

My new favorite song, "Smarty Pants," by First Choice.

Apparently, cockroaches produce protein and nutrient-rich crystals to feed their young. And now we can eat it, too! Cockroach milk, here we come!
