    I spent all my money getting my brains blown out by Overkill at the Sunshine Theater a few hours ago (my ears are still ringing).

    4. Considering that the City of Albuquerque hasn’t been in the business of providing firearms to the general public in the 25 years that I’ve lived here, the use of the word “buyback” is an error at best, and a duplicitious lie at worst (I’m betting on worst-case at this point).

Concert Review — Overkill at the Sunshine Theater

For what it’s worth, I bought my ticket online over two months ago —

As late as 2006, I had to drive around Albuquerque, looking for Ticketmaster sellers [1]. HoldMyTicket is so, so much BETTER than Ticketmaster.

Here’s the event poster (had to convert it from .webp format, as WordPress doesn’t like that one [2]) from the Sunshine Theater’s site [3]

Leading up to Overkill, Exhorder put out a good effort. Here’s their official site, Facebook Page, and YouTube channel.

Here’s Overkill’s set list from last night:

In the middle of “Rotten to the Core,” Mike Trujillo, former host of Zero Hour Squared on the now-defunct (?) Channel 27, stopped by, said “Hi,” and we shook hands. Nothing like meeting old friends at these shows.

This was the fourth time I’ve seen Overkill live [4], and as on the previous occasions, they didn’t disappoint. I am hoping for fifth, sixth, and seventh times, wherever I might end up.


NOTES

  1. Ticketmaster Wikipedia page
  2. Nor does WordPress like the Scalable Vector Graphics (.svg) format that seems so much better than JPEG or PNG. Whatever.
  3. Sunshine Theater event page, Facebook event page
  4. First time — Friday, 23 September 2005 at the Launchpad [618 Central SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico]

    Second time — Monday, 17 November 2013 at the Sunshine Theater [120 Central SW, Albuquerque, New Mexico]
