Watch those allergies: CDs are in the air!

One Pin Short’s self-titled new album

Spring is officially here: The temperature is rising, pollen is all over our cars, and local CD releases are popping up like wildflowers.

The Mapes' new album

Local punk-rockers The Mapes might not appreciate being compared to flowers, seeing as how they usually don lucha libre masks and inappropriately short Boy Scout uniforms for performances ... if they opt for clothing at all. The quartet will celebrate its new album with a show at the Bunkhouse on April 10 with Monster Zero, The Black Jetts, The Bitters and Brant Bjork & The Bros. The Mapes’ 10-track self-titled disc boasts several song titles too intense to print, but look forward to hearing tracks like “Baby Ate My Dingo” and “I Hope You’re Just Getting Fat,” an ode to girlfriends who’d better not be pregnant.

One Pin Short

At the other end of the musical spectrum, local ska/reggae band One Pin Short releases its self-titled new album—featuring such fan favorites as “Waiting” and “Revolution”—April 11 at the Henderson Events Plaza, along with HighDro, Stereo High, Lydia Vance, Dyslexic Duo, The Donner’s Party and Boss City Sounds. Catch OPS now, because they’re headed out on an East Coast college tour later this month.

  • Among the handful of Nevada-based films screened at last week's shorts fest was a few music videos for local acts.

  • The group’s footprint here has included a Joint residency, Kiss by Monster Mini-Golf and Kiss-themed wedding packages.

  • It has become more political, with songs about the #MeToo movement and bias in the news. And its sound is noticeably more aggressive.
