Well, you can’t find out from their ad in the Alibi this week because we (I) screwed up and lost the ad for Sister in the shuffle. But most notably at Sister, this week:
Friday, May 31, catch an ear-crunching, face-melting stoner-rock assault from Albuquerque’s super-heavy SuperGiant, teaming up with rockabilly favorite Cowboys and Indian. The show starts at 10 p.m. and tickets are $5.
The following night, Saturday June 1, Sister invites you to pull out your fancy dance moves, drink some delicious Beat Sauce and spend an evening wiggling and jiggling to the spinning of DJ Nicolatron, Brendangerous, Dirt Girl, Ben Bitten and a special visual dessert from Benji Geary.
I heard all of your friends are going to both shows.
