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)

EVENT HORIZON (Tuesday, Mar 7)

Bring a Tissue

Gaby Fuentes • Regulus • Tear Pressure • indie pop, punk

An up and coming local band I have been enjoying listening to is named Tear Pressure. I found out about them when I was wandering the local college campus and saw a flyer for a show they were doing at some apartment complex up on Copper, in the heights, yo. That was a decent show with an excellent barbeque and I felt like Tear Pressure was going to appear on the scene within the year. Now of course, they are playing their dirty and delicious, slithery and subtle no wave at Burt's Tiki Lounge on Monday, March 6, and as usual at Burt's there is no goddamn cover charge. Ever. I hear some daring lo-fi pop credentials being built on tunes from the band's latest recording, the Chill Ass EP—songs like “Quaaludes” and “All Moms Are Weirdos.” that build intensity as they roll through cray melodic and stylistic changes. They'll be opening for math mastermind and CRTTRZ guitarist Gabriel Angel Fuentes and Austin indie taco-rockers Regulus, so be there
