Music to Your Ears

Launchpad Sets a Date!

... Sort of. The gospel according to Joe Anderson is the Launchpad will re-open in July, but he seemed hesitant (understandably) to make anything official at press time. A cursory glance at Anderson's website lists a Launchpad concert by Rooney, Locksley and The Bridges scheduled for Monday, July 7—but that's still as good as speculation at this point. If the show proceeds as planned, it'll be the first time the Launchpad's opened its doors to the public since the Golden West fire shut the venue down on Feb. 28 of this year. Until then, keep your eyes here, on RockSquawk.com and on alibi.com for the first word on the Launchpad's relaunch. You know we're good for it.

Hit By A Bus CD Release

The little engine that could

Hit By A Bus has been in existence, with one lineup or another, since 1998. That's a lifetime in a local scene where projects dissolve and new ones form every few months.

Sonic Reducer

Frisbee ReDISCOVERY · Mates of State Re-Arrange Us · N.E.R.D. Seeing Sounds

There just isn’t enough meat on the bones of this debut LP, though singer-songwriter Frisbee (first name: Aaron) has his heart in the right place. Nothing seems disingenuous about the piano, guitar and analog synthesizer-based love songs. The lyrics have an understated charm and don’t come across as preachy or uppity. But there’s a tendency to find a mini-groove and just sit there for what feels like days. The instrumentation doesn’t carry enough oomph, and when it’s just Frisbee and the faint sound of piano keys, the texture is hollow and small. Frisbee speaks like an adult, but his songs lack maturity. (SM)

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 on only $5 and a valid 21+ ID. Doors are at 8pm; the righteous ritual begins at 9pm.
