The mission of the Albuquerque Indian Center is to “Empower the Albuquerque urban Native American Community and others through provisions of wrap-around services designed to promote wellness, education, self-sufficiency and tradition.” On Wednesday, Feb. 3, Launchpad (618 Central SW) hosts a concert whose proceeds will benefit the continuing goals of the 26-year-old nonprofit. A plethora of local rockers will rep Burque’s music community for the event. Ranging in tone from powerfully punk-rock derived declamations of Weedrat, through the elusive slow-wave metal shoegaze of Lilith and onto the aggressively engaged, socially enraged grindcore—or old town grid as its known around here—of Laughing Dog. Okay. So I am going to stop typing for a moment, turn to my wife and say, “This sounds like a helluva show!” And it shall be too. Weedrat has gotten a lot of press on these pages of late, and for good reason, because of the band’s authenticity. Lilith, comprised of Allen Augustine and Heather Price, is a relatively new project that draws upon multiple referents and musical identities to delicately churn out some of the most complexly def tuneage available here and now. As for Laughing Dog, the dudes have been righteously rocking the body politik through seminal, hard-core style stuff like “Atomic Groove” and “Terrorized Perceptions” for years, adding heady heights to their corner of the metal universe. This 21+ confluence of community and chordal cacophony begins at 9:30pm. The price of admission is $5.
