Music to Your Ears

We Will, We Will Mock U

Seeing how the topic is fake bands, and Keller Williams and the WMDs are coming through town this week, it's pretty serendipitous that Electric Apricot: Quest for Festeroo just happens to be debuting in Albuquerque on Tuesday. Primus bass-master Les Claypool wrote, directed and stars in this mock rockumentary chronicling the highs (cough) and lows of a jam band reaching for cult status in the jam circuit.

Fake It ’Til You Make It

If these guys became rockstars, you sure as hell can

There are a multitude of phony-baloney "bands" that have made the jump from fiction to radio. Bands that blurred the line between fantasy and reality so effectively that even Stephen Hawking’s sexy Speak and Spell voice can’t explain the phenomenon.

Monterey Jazz Festival 50th Anniversary All-Stars Live at the 2007 Monterey Jazz Festival · Magnetic Fields Distortion · The Helio Sequence Keep Your Eyes Ahead

Pulled together to celebrate the last 50 and the next 50 years of jazz at the Monterey Jazz Festival, the MJF All-Stars— James Moody (sax, flute), Terence Blanchard (trumpet), Nnenna Freelon (vocals), Benny Green (piano, musical director), Derrick Hodge (bass), and Kendrick Scott (drums)—bring their A games, covering mainstream ground from bebop to post-bop. High points include the charming Moody/Freelon duet on Ellington’s “Just Squeeze Me,” Moody’s swing on Milt Jackson’s “Monterey Mist” and Blanchard’s blistering solo on Lionel Loueke’s “Benny’s Tune” (the most modern composition). The set is relaxed, playful and occasionally intense, with everyone letting down their hair. (MM)

EVENT HORIZON (Monday, Aug 1)

Vans Used to be for Skaters, Now They Just Mean You Like to Rock

2016 Vans Warped Tour • Atreyu • Good Charlotte • pop punk • New Found Glory • rock • Mayday Parade • Motionless in White • metal • Waka Flocka Flame • rap

Good news, everybody! This year's Van's Warped Tour is coming through Burque—albeit the festival's given up its lauded positioning at the big amphitheater south of town for the slightly more placid, arcadian and sometimes floaty atmosphere at Balloon Fiesta Park. So, just in case you want to know, the whole schmear goes off on Monday, August 1. The Albuquerque iteration of this ultra-famous yearly event will feature preeminent 'Merican musical acts like Against The Current, Chelsea Grin, Ice Nine Kills, Less Than Jake, Mother Feather, Teenage Bottlerocket and We The Kings. These performances are in addition to a host of other winsome activities designed to lure the youth of the vicinity into the devilish servitude associated with rocanrol music, including a comp ticket for parents (if you're under the age of 18), a hydration station and a totally awesome sponsor and vendor village. Tickets range in price from $37.50-$47.50 and are available through Ticketmaster.
