Friday

One of the best things about the local community is its mutual affinity for everyone that’s genuinely part of the scene. That makes the whole thing pretty big, considering the number of performers and listeners and other peripheral participants in the area. When All Chola—a puro local outlet for merch that glorifies urban Chicana pop fashion by taking back the power of pride, rebellion and folk feminism with def designs and local referent—had a load of their merch stolen recently, all sorts of citizens came forward to pledge their support. The main result: a benefit concert on Friday, Aug. 31 at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW). This big rock show, just in time to provide some forward momentum to some bitchin’ cholas as well as to bid summer hasta luego, Labor Day weekend style, yo, because it will totally rock! Featured bands include DJ Buddha Funk, hardened headbangers Sorry Guero, rustic and roguish singer songwriter Garry Blackchild and the always jamming like jambalaya Felix y Los Gatos. How can you go wrong with a ticket like that? It’s for a damn good cause. 8pm • $5 • 21+.
