Think of it as your cover charge for one local concert a month. We're aiming to bring you at least 4 a month. Plus you'll get to check out exclusive content, including band interviews, outtakes and extra songs. That's quite the bargain!

People like you make it possible for us to keep the music scene alive in Albuquerque.

About Launchpad

Launchpad has been a staple music venue in downtown Albuquerque for over 20 years. It is a home to local bands and a beloved stop for national and international touring acts. 
Launchpad has been closed to the public since early March. Live concerts have been canceled for the remainder of the year as we all do our best to defeat COVID-19. Now as we look forward towards an uncertain future, we need to adapt. That's why we've been streaming concerts from the Launchpad stage, bringing our followers live music from some of our favorite local bands. 

Thanks to our Patreon members we were able to bring back the beloved Night of the Living Cover Bands virtually this year for everyone to enjoy from their home for Halloween. Now we are continuing in our streaming concert series. Presenting new local bands every week.

We'll be filming and editing all of the concert footage together and adding a professionally mixed audio from our Launchpad sound engineer. All social distancing guidelines will be practices. Only band members, a sound tech and a film tech will be allowed in the building. Masks will be worn at all times possible. Our goal with this project is to deliver quality filmed concerts featuring some of New Mexico's top and most exciting bands. If that's something you'd like to see, then please support our Patreon.

We'd like to keep this going until we are able to gather for concerts again. So we have switched to this Patreon model. It's a monthly subscription deal. So think of it like the money you would normally spend each month seeing amazing concerts in the Launchpad. In exchange, you'll get some great local concerts to watch from the safety of your own house. (And no one is gonna cut you off at home!) In addition, we'll be sending you some exclusive content including extended band interviews, extra songs, behind the scenes videos, and more. So anything you can contribute on the regular would help immensely, even if all you can do is share this campaign.

Please help keep Launchpad and local music alive in Albuquerque!

Thanks for your support.
