Music to Your Ears

Poster Child

Riffing on this week's New Mexico Jazz Festival kick-off (see "Spotlight"), Santa Fe's Vintage Poster Gallery (901 Canyon, 505-577-7419) is mounting the largest exhibition of vintage Polish jazz concert posters in North America. The collection starts in the underground ’50s (jazz was condemned under Stalinist communism) and winds up through the European festivals of the ’90s; just about all of the posters are surreally eye-popping. The exhibition runs through Aug. 15 and opens with a reception this Saturday, July 19, from 2 to 5 p.m. Bert Dalton will perform, courtesy of Friends of Santa Fe Jazz. Regular gallery hours are noon to 5 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday. You can preview posters from the exhibition at mrposter.com; or add your own concert art to the Alibi Flyer on the Web database at alibi.com/FOTW.

Zoltán Székely

CD Release

Who is Zoltán Székely?

The self-proclaimed mad Hungarian opens up ... a little

You may have seen him walking down Central, head down, guitar on his back, handlebar mustache and long, blackened fingernails. He's not much of a talker, though he's liable to take off his shirt on stage, revealing a thick mat of curly black chest hair. Swirling around in the local Mythos of Zoltán is the fact that he was banned from the Golden West for getting naked. "I've been known to showcase my hairy body parts and such at other shows," he says.

Sonic Reducer

Unit 7 Drain LoveCraft · Fast Heart Mart Cheap & Sunny · The Dirty Hearts Pigs

Albuquerque’s new wave, post-punk fivesome Unit 7 Drain keeps catching lightning in a bottle. The band can do a catchy tune and give it a hint of dark bravado like no one else in the Duke City, but where LoveCraft is most pleasantly surprising is in its instrumental space-outs. The synths creep across the floor like organic ooze; drummer Chris Newman goes savage, beating his kit to a pulp; and the guitars fuss and fight like a hungry child. Harry Redus-Brown has been heavily praised for his marvelous voice, and rightly so, but just as important to the band’s aesthetic are the dual-lead vocals of Redus-Brown and Ella Vader, which give Unit 7 a hearthy warmth.

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 • New Found Glory • Mayday Parade • Motionless in White • Waka Flocka Flame

Good news, everybody! This year's Van's Warped Tour is coming through Burque—albeit the festival's given up it's 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 Bottle Rocket 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.
