Local music—and the pervasive community of creatives that form the sub-culture's center—is so important in defining our civic heritage that even local government types are keen on recognizing and affirming the power of homegrown sounds. That attitude will be in full effect on Saturday, May 13, when the City of Albuquerque presents a Local Band Showcase at Civic Plaza from noon to 5pm. This event—which also features local food trucks and brewers—aims to celebrate our burg's bright and brilliant musicos with a day dedicated to new and nascent bands. They'll be two stages filled to the brim with heady sounds. Featured performers include The Curious Few, The Tularosa Basin Musicians Union, Cynical Bird, Mountainhead, and Michael Moxey and the Easy Sinners, among many other notable and totally listenable ensembles and individuals. Check it out, pick a new favorite and even bang your head, if so inclined. It's free, and it will be fun, after all. (August March)Civic PlazaLocal Band Showcase 2017
