Drug Church • alternative, hardcore punk • The Coma Recovery • metal • Boyfriend Armada
Hey man, do you, like, wanna go to drug church? How's does Coma Recovery suit you after a night out and is there a Boyfriend Armada awaiting you in the stormy waters of the Rio Grande? Ask yourself these and other relevant questions on Thursday, May 25, when the fine folks over at ye olde Launchpad bring some of the bestest rocanrol music—made by some of the most archly named musical units in Satan's legion—to our humble, though not quite innocent little town by the river. Get ready to mosh until you melt down when the aforementioned Drug Church, a hardcore quintet from Nueva York, hit the stage. They'll be joined in brutal, sonic ritual by two of this town's loudest and louchest acts, the Coma Recovery and Boyfriend Armada, of course. It'll be fun and maybe you'll even have a bruise or broken bone to show off afterwards … you know, after your parents trundle off to bed and Snapchat is getting hot. This 13+ show is only $8; that should hopefully help the Dark Lord's recruitment efforts for the evening—it begins at 8pm, by the way.
