Dudes! Do not forget about the ARISE Music and Coffee fundraiser coming up on Friday, July 20 at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. NW). We spoke to the very interesting and rocked out fellows that run this essentially Burqueño music shop a couple of weeks ago and it’s got our thumbs-up as one of the best local music emporiums and hangouts to ever rise out of the dry desert dust in El Duque. Join Mike Trujillo and Roman Barham as they welcome support and performances from local prog and metal masters like Suspended, Cobra vs. Mongoose, Anesthesia, Brother Strange and Patema. It’s going to be an awesomely head-banging night; support your local scene, ese! 8pm • $7 • 21+.
