King Tuff’s Spooky Rock and Roll Stylings

By

King Tuff is the alias and band of Brattleboro, Vt. native and L.A. resident Kyle Thomas. His music varies from mellow psychedelia to blazing power pop. Imbued with Mr. Tuff’s righteous guitar parts, every bit of it is worthy of earnest Bic salutations or fully engaged fist pumps. You can see King Tuff play live on Monday at the Launchpad with similarly amazing L.A. band Audacity. In the meantime, eavesdrop on the telephone conversation King Tuff and I had about jock jams and the magic of music. And I totally was not the stoned one.

Vintage Burque Band Photos

By
From the Alibi vaults: In 2005 Laura Marrich and Jessica Cassyle Carr rescued a bunch of old local band promo photos from the trash. In the years since, Laura has been their guardian (... or, at least, she kept them in a pile in the back of her filing cabinet). Sure, nostalgia isn’t what it used to be, but here are some of the best shots:

Eternal Recurrence

Holly Rebelle's High School Reunion • Tito Bonito • Mr. Valdez • Mustang Monroe • burlesque, boylesque, variety

By Joshua Lee
That nightmare, again: You're in biology class, trying not to nod off while the teacher drones, and suddenly you notice everyone's gaze focus squarely on you. You're naked, it's test day and you forgot to study. But that's not what's freaking you out. No—it's the plastic jelly bracelets, stirrup pants and side ponytails that cause you to sit up in bed, heart thumping like a '90s boom bap beat. This Saturday, May 26, your dreams are becoming a dayglo-blooded reality at Holly Rebelle's High School Reunion: A Burlesque Tribute to the '90s. The dreaded time machine takes off from the Launchpad at 8pm. Admission is $15 for adults over 21 (anyone younger probably wouldn't get it anyway).
