Death Vessel Nothing is Precious Enough for Us · Jamey Johnson That Lonesome Song · Trapt Only Through The Pain...

Contrary to what you might assume given its moniker, Death Vessel is actually quite cheery. Acoustic folk set to a slow gallop and held together by the pitter-patter of guitar strings is a wee bit eerie but hardly the stuff of nightmares. Lead singer Joel Thibodeau's falsetto beckons you, and there's something quaint and old-timey about the band's approach. Perhaps it's the frequent influx of banjo, mandolin and lap steel, which are put to use without overpowering the mostly quiet aesthetic. Relaxing, but not at all bland, Nothing is Precious Enough for Us is a luminous and altogether charming record that acknowledges melancholy without letting it win. (SM)

Eternal Recurrence

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

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).
