On Saturday, Mar. 24 Rejoice: Best of Burque Music Showcase is Go

More awesome local bands than ever!

Driving home while thinking about the cultural profoundity of events like Weekly Alibi’s upcoming Best of Burque Music Showcase—which is happening on Saturday evening, March 24, downtown, in case you did not know that fact—led me to the shores of ghetto Smith’s where I repaired to the produce section for some fresh fruit to calm my florid mind.

Standing amongst the apples and oranges two youthful humans dialoged. This is what they said:

—Do you like parties?

—Yeah …

—We can invite all our friends and have soda and pie!

—Nah, let’s just go Downtown Saturday! The Alibi gots that Best of Burk music fest. There’s, like, 24 bands playing at five different clubs and shizz.

—OMG, check out this ad, Spaceblnkt, The Despots, The Riddims and Moonshine Blind are headlining! Didn’t you tweet everyone on our friends list about how you had a crush on the bass player? …

—I did swipe right, but ever mind, dude … I’m only thinking about what cool club we should start partying at that night!

You heard it here first. The best local music showcase ever—in the known universe probably—available for your kind and conscientious consumption. And it’s on Saturday night, for Crissakes!

Sister Bar (407 Central NW) (Ages: 21+)
