Are you ready to rock, Albuquerque? Although we pretty much know the answer to that age-old question, here’s a show that’s bound to keep you all bouncing off the walls and digging the infinite pleasures to be obtained when you mix an electric guitar and a throbbing rhythm section with a cold winter night in the Burkes. This headbangers’ ball on Saturday, Jan. 11 at Launchpad (618 Central Ave. SW), features noted Albuquerque indie rock duo, The Talking Hours (Karie and Maurico Paez), as well as the brutally metallic musical constructions of Darken the Day—with Drew “Drucifer” Lucero and Tony Tencza on dreamy/screamy lead vocals—as well as the loud and lascivious punk rock soundings created by Illum, Distances and Departer. Who could ask for more in the face of all the chaos coming down the pike? Rock out while you can, kids! 9pm • $5 • 21+.
