Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW) proprietor and local impressario Joe Anderson has got to be smiling this week as his venue is carrying the weight of the more than decent Albuquerque shows this week. It all starts with wide, conversationally nuanced awakening on Friday, Jan. 26, when The Coma Recovery and The Talking Hours headline a gloriously local show at Burque’s legendary gateway to the rocanrol stars. As you may recall, the former sonic ensemble makes thunderously epic excusions into the dark heart of musical expression, with tuneage like “Red Lightning Child, Great Emptiness” and “Beneath One Silent Orchestra.” I wanna say they have a complex, fast-beating post-rock heart made from one of the heavier metals on the periodic table, but that might get me in trouble because of their propulsive beats. I’ve already told you about The Talking Hours; they’re golden, dude. Shoe-gazy drifters and ear-damagers Soliloquist and Pacenotes open this trip into guitar-glazed eternity. $5 • 9pm • 21+.
