Scrams!

Pile onto the Marble Brewery patio (First Street and Marble NW, 21+) for garage punk supreme by The Scrams. 8 p.m. and free, but bring cash for the band’s brand-new, rumpus-ready 7-inch. (Laura Marrich)

Sonic Reducer

Arctic Monkeys Humbug · Felix da Housecat He Was King

British pseudo-punk quartet Arctic Monkeys established a sound with its first album and solidified that sound with a second. Now begins the tricky business of gradual modification. The chunky, line-drive curvature of the Monkeys' first two releases is replaced with a roomy echo chamber. The band is less concerned with racing through verses to get to hooks and more worried about atmospherics and reverb. Besides "Crying Lightening," it's hard to pick out an especially apt radio hit. But a change had to come, and this one's for the better.

The Last Leaf Falls

So if one is to believe the truth and beauty inherently found on the interwebz through the agency of social media, then it is very possible the last show ever at Low Spirits will be happening on Tuesday…

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Apr 28)

Make Your Own Rock 'n' Roll

Nizhoni Girls • The Flossies • indie, rock • Midnight Stew • Nite Kidz • Lilith • shoegaze • Litter Brain

The poster for the concert happening at Moonlight Lounge on Friday, April 28, depicts a lonesome hogan placed in the midst of a black and white desolation. Flying out from a chimney on the traditional Diné dwelling is a plume of colorful smoke that names some of the bands that make that large sacred expanse to Burque’s west much more than a monochromatic desert. The smoky color of music pervades that realm, and now it’s drifting our way. With music by rez rebels Nizhóní Girls, The Flossies, Midnight Stew, Nite Kidz, Lilith and Burque’s own DIY punk powerhouse Litter Brain, this is going to be a concert guaranteed to give listeners a solid and soulfully sonic indication of how powerful the voices—and electric guitars and synths and drums—from our Native American neighbors and fellow punk rockers can be. The bands will be performing during this year’s Gathering of Nations Pow Wow to raise funds for the upcoming Asdzaa Warrior Fest. Join in on this rocking revelation for only $5 and a valid 21+ ID. Doors are at 8pm; the righteous ritual begins at 9pm.
