​The local super-indie label Destroyio Records made it all the way to the finals of Miami New Times' recent Mastermind Awards contest this past winter. That was not a small feat, considering the artsy-fartsy, more "establishment"-type entries in the pool. The one-man operation deserves plenty of credit for keeping proper punk rock alive, the way it's meant to be. That's raw, real, and loud, more about hand-drawn flyers, cheap shows wherever people will have them, and a participatory, communal spirit - not the super-slickness of latter-day, overly groomed bands who try to pass for "punk."

Destroyio Records Hosts Baker Acted CD Release Party at Churchill's This Thurdsay


Destroyio's latest showcase is this Thursday at, of course, Churchill's, and celebrates the label's release of a CD by Baker Acted, a politically conscious, five-member, coed group that, as its name promises, is a little unhinged. A million other bands are on the bill, of course, but particularly worth checking out are sludgy heavyweights Consular, and the old school pogo-worthy, bilingual trio Guerrilleros de Nadie.

Baker Acted. With the Ticks, Consular, Guerrilleros de Nadie, and others. 9 p.m. Thursday, April 29. Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE 2nd Ave., Miami. Admission is $5; age 21 and up; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com
