Monday Part II

Meanwhile over at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. NW), prepare to rock, albeit in a decidedly, hypnotically alternative fashion. Built to Spill headlines a fantastically rocked out bill that also features Ed Harcourt and Prism Bitch. Just so you know, Built to Spill is one of those seminal indie rock bands that helped define the term back in the ’90s and like other singular outfits of that age—notably The Shins—are really just one dude with a rotating selection of sidemen in tow. In the case of Built to Spill, that overarching spirit of the band is embodied by vocalist and guitarist Doug Martsch. He’s the one responsible for rock masterpieces like Ultimate Alternative Wavers and Ancient Melodies of the Future. Singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt ain’t no slouch, either. His influence on the indie music community is diffuse and on-going; masterworks like The Beautiful Lie really do have a gravitas that transcends time. Oh, and these two rock giants happen to be sharing the stage with Prism Bitch, one of the most exciting, singularly sick and sublime rock ensembles to come outta Burque in a while. 9pm • $25 • 21+.
