High Desert Queen (album release & costume party), Rickshaw Billie's Burger Patrol, Holy Death Trio, Goodeye

Only two years into their formation, High Desert Queen managed to nail a mature punk rock edge – the kind you want sittin’ on your shelf – packed tight with thoughtfully cohesive and gnarly sounds. Gracefully written, their debut Secrets of the Black Moon comes bearing eight repeat worthy tracks stocked with driving downbeats from Phil Hook, heavy bass from Matt Metzger, invigorating chords from Rusty Miller, and spellbinding words from Ryan Garney. Rickshaw Billie’s Burger Patrol, Holy Death Trio, and Goodeye join the party, kicking off the inevitably high-octane performance. Oh, and in the spirit of the holiday, wear your best action movie character fit – make sure it dooms! – Morgan-Taylor Thomas
