Wow. Just wow. After last weekend’s supercharged, soulfully sublime Alibi Best of Burque Music Showcase, you may be plumb afeared that the entirety of the local scene has finished expressing itself—and so may be wont to shine with the same hep-toned resignation favored by Mercer and the gang over at Shins Central. Well, the song may rock, but I gotta change up its downtrodden expression here with some kinda bright optimism, a kind of new slang if you will: The scene doesn’t stop. Practically every night and especially on the weekends, the creative forces behind our local music community have a bevy of big sounds and ecstatic encounters available to keep you up and interested—so brighten up and be there while the squawking birds quit and the cold weather recedes into spring.
