On Saturday, Dec. 21 at 8pm, the legendary Launchpad presents a hang-out style concert that has become a holiday legend in Burque. Tom Waits for Christmas is a total seasonal party with libations, piped-in Christmas music to reminisce over and covers of tunes by musical madman and major dude Tom Waits. The covers part of the show features performances by the likes of Billy Crooze, the Silver String Band with special guest Los Bebes, Carlos Jose Rafael Garcia, JD Dame, Avenge Apollo, William Sunday and Darlin' & the Rodeo Runners. Basement films, a local legend in its own right, is there to screen old-timey holiday movies too, so you oughta go. As a heads up, this 21-plus event does not feature the real Tom Waits, but we can remember when he'd perform monthly at Rafael's Silver Cloud on the road to Santa Fe in the early '70s. Take part in it all for a $10 cover. (August March)
