Lay Down Your Jackson and You Will See

Punk rock surfaced in the late '70s after fermenting for a few halcyon years on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean while bands like 38 Special and ELO did their best to destroy the overarching genre known as rocanrol. Thanks to early adherents, like Television and the Damned, a radical re-interpretation of rock music did indeed provide a mechanism of salvation ­or escape—depending on your point of view—for a long-running musical format. In microcosm, Burque saw a similar evolution, as overwrought outfits like the Soxx and The Planets were replaced with the likes of Jerry's Kidz and Cracks in the Sidewalk. Listeners can take in the huge scope of today's punk sound by visiting the Launchpad on Thursday, April 12 for a concert by formidable Los Angelenos The Bronx and No Parents. They're headlining a fine gig that also features Albuquerque's truest punks evah, Russian Girlfriends. So shine up your Docs, dig your own DIY countenance and join the rest of those who know who the heck D. Boon really was by attending this damn fine show; a Jackson gets you in, and the action starts at 8pm. This is a 21+ event. (August March)
