They may not enjoy bleeding publicly as much as Edward Norton's character did in Fight Club, but the brave souls who enter into the Central Wrestling Organization matches at the Aztlan Theater still seem to derive a rush from delivering -- and receiving -- exhibition-style ass-kickings. Contenders with names like Extreme Machine, Jenocide and Psycho Sarge expertly drop-kick, jack up and put the smack down on their opponents, all to the delight of increasingly sizable crowds. Inspired by the success of the CWO events, concert promoter Dan Steinberg has recently begun incorporating more gore into the Aztlan calendar by implementing punk-rock fight nights and female oil-wrestling matches.

DJs Adict and Resonant (aka Mike Merriman and Nate Harvey) are hip-hop heads of the most serious kind -- and that's to the benefit of anyone who tunes in to their weekly radio show on Radio 1190. In addition to spinning the most up-and-coming underground hip-hop artists from the local and national scenes, the crew hosts artists in the studio for interview and instructional sessions as well as for live performances. Adict and Resonant are students -- of the University of Colorado at Boulder and of the history of rap and hip-hop. Judging by the success of their program, they're definitely making the grade in the latter.

Host Kai Turner makes Sundays especially holy, with three hours of choice three-chord music from 7 to 10 p.m. each Sabbath. Turner has taste and does his homework, bringing both established blues stars and unsung heroes to local ears. And he's not afraid to spin a few things that stretch his show's handle by a few bars.
