Danger! High Voltage

Electric Six • Gabriel The Marine • Glitter Dick

Most everyone has heard Detroit sextet Electric Six's anthemic track “Gay Bar,” but not everyone realizes the band has continued to regularly release strong material throughout its 14-year career. Blurring arena rock, disco, glam and synth pop, Electric Six proves its mettle tonight at Launchpad, along with Long Island, New York-based alt.rock quintet Gabriel the Marine and local controversy-soaked blood-surfers Glitter Dick. The amps crank up at 9:30 p.m., and admission to the 21-and-over gig is $12. Abraham Lincoln beards and lamé pants are highly recommended. Launchpad • Wed Feb 20 • 9:30 pm • $12 • View on Alibi calendar

Yeehaw-goth meets full Rooster, control issues and battling the city

Blues Control
Blues Control
Morrissey's doctor has ordered him to rest a spell during treatment for a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus. So, the Pope of Mope's Tricky Falls gig is once again being rescheduled. Heaven knows super-fans are miserable now, so send some not happy/not sad recuperative vibes to Moz. I am reassured, 'cause weird old Wilde is on his side.

On the bright side, that frees up our collective schedule to catch Queens, New York duo Blues Control on Tuesday, Feb. 12, at Small Engine Gallery (1413 Fourth Street SW), along with Fando and Fort Hobo. On Sunday, Feb. 10, get your alt.country/gothabilly and gonzo-roots fix at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) with Slim Cessna's Auto Club and The Imperial Rooster. Be a battle participant/voyeur on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at Desert Banditz' Mic Club 7 at Launchpad (618 Central SW). Peruse the deets in this week's Music to Your Ears. Check out A/V from featured acts below. Small Engine Gallery • Blues Control • Fando • Fort Hobo • Tues Feb 12 • 9 pm • $5 • ALL-AGES! • smallenginegallery.com

Metal Nativity

End To End • Left To Rot • Torture Victim • Perverted Virtue • The Rot Inn

Left to Rot

Shake off the post-holiday, too-many-biscochitos blues at a cacophonous showcase on Wednesday. Left to Rot hail from Laguna Pueblo and deliver death metallurgy with precision and dexterity. Blackened grind foursome End to End, death punk/thrash four-piece Torture Victim, upstart Perverted Virtue and red corn syrup-doused The Rot Inn, of the New Mexico Thrash Zone, also shred. Don't spend so much time futzing with your coiffure or eyeliner that you neglect to bring some hearing protection. This show will get loud. The 21-and-over concert kicks off at 9:30 p.m. at Launchpad (618 Central SW). Admission is only $4. Launchpad • Wed Dec 26 • 9:30 pm • $4 • View on Alibi calendar

No Fake Astronauts Here

Alternative music and hip-hop rarely mesh well, but when done right, the combination is a praiseworthy feat. Linkin Park tried for years and—though mainstream America may disagree—they never quite pulled it off. Charles Andrew Bothwell’s brainchild, Austronautalis, excels for a couple of reasons. First, he’s an insightful songwriter (see “Measure the Globe”). Sure, there are many serious hip-hop artists, but not a lot of alt. ones. Another reason is that Austronautalis doesn’t travel the ironic road. At first, I thought his songs might be a joke, but soon saw that the subject matter is legit, which makes his work profound. And he adds just the right amount of fuzz to keep things interesting. Bothwell will drop his “indie-folk-historical-fiction-hip-hop” at this 13-and-over gig.

If you’ve read about The Gracchi, it probably wasn’t in the Alibi. Former Editor in Chief Laura Marrich has played in the band since its inception, so the paper was ethically unable to cover the act, but now we can. Read all about it in The Gracchi Reunite at Garage & Wax. The group’s original lineup performs at Captain America’s fourth Garage and Wax Night.
