Albuquerque’s popular showcase of local bands covering their favorite musicians returns virtually on Oct. 30.
The “Night of the Living Cover Bands” will be a smaller showcase that can be enjoyed in the comfort and safety of your home.
“This year, it’s a virtual experience,” said Barney Lopez, Launchpad promoter. “What we’re doing this month is we’re having different local bands come in and film a cover set in the Launchpad for ‘Night of the Living Cover Bands.’ What we do is we film everything ahead of time with the bands. Everyone is wearing masks. When we set up we keep our distance. It’s just a skeleton crew. We just have a three-person crew filming audio and the band members.”
