When you think of places to find kick ass metal bands, Santa Clara may not spring to mind. That's where to go Saturday night though!

Saturday night, Archer Nation rock Santa Clara New Mexico, a couple of hours from El Paso. (Take I-10 west from Las Cruces to Deming. At Deming, exit and drive straight into Santa Clara.) The band are bringing their Summer Shred tour to the Brown Derby Nite Club, 411 N. Bayard St, 88026.

According to the bands Facebook page, they hail from Santa Cruz, California, and have toured through over 20 countries along with some of the biggest acts in rock. Their 2015 studio release "Culling The Weak" was produced and mixed by legendary rock producer Mike Clink (Megadeth, Guns N' Roses, UFO, etc). Archer Nation has also recorded with the likes of Sam Taylor (King’s X, ZZ Top) and Gilby Clarke of Guns N' Roses.

Krysis will open the show, doors open at 8. If you want to make a weekend of it, there are several nice hotels within minutes of the Brown Derby. For more info, call (575) 537-2782.
