Things will be just a tad more festive, one hopes, on Saturday night, Oct. 22, when Launchpad (618 Central SW) welcomes the Night of the Living Cover Bands. And who the hell doesn’t want to hear some of Burque’s best bang out heroically recognizable tunes? Even in my current state of grief and shocked disbelief at the fragility of life on Earth, I’m, like, totally psyched. For instance, who can resist the fun implicit in watching heavy psych-superheroes SuperGiant performing as Twisted Sister, The Big Spank paying homage to Al Hurricane, or Anesthesia aping Metallica? Sorry Güero adds cultural cache to such sonic indulgences by literally becoming Cypress Hill, live and on stage, while Votives do their utmost to come off as American Football. (Note: the previous night, Friday, Oct. 21, Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) features a similar conceit and theme, with Little Bobby Tucker and Shoulder Voices doing a damn fine David Bowie knockoff, Lady Uranium as the Cocteau Twins and Clark Andrew Libbey donning black eye shadow in the manner of Robert Smith—enough said). Tickets for a Saturday night vision of superb simulacra and vasty verisimilitude cost but five bones in advance and eight at the door. The 21+ action gets going at 8pm.
