STOVE Goes Cold, PMS Resurfaces

The bad news is STOVE is closing. The good news is the space isn't going away--it's getting passed on to the folks of Black Market Goods, an underground traveling gallery (skip to the arts section to read about the details of the handover). The bad news is that means no more (ir)regular live music at 114 Morningside NE. But the good news is the last music event at the East Nob Hill artspace/venue will be a reunion of Albuquerque pirate queens Potty Mouth Sherry's. Relocated bandmate Cassady Fernandez is back in New Mexico for Christmas, and so PMS is rebooting for a quickie. Say “hi” to PMS and “bye” to STOVE as a music venue this Friday, Dec. 26, with Fando and Roñoso. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. and cover's $5.

Sonic Reducer

School of Seven Bells Alpinisms · Fall Out Boy Folie Deux · Musiq Soulchild OnMyRadio

Fall Out Boy’s fourth album aims to push Britney Spears’ For the Record docu-mercial out of people's minds and give ears something slightly more valuable. Monstrously trendy Pete Wentz and the other guys of Fall Out Boy are sticking with their trademark catchy, fast-paced choruses and occasional clapping--which will certainly please some listeners and leave others wanting more. The surrealities of Hollywood are tossed into the album with smirking lines like “detox just to re-tox” from “Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes.” If you think “I Don’t Care” will be Fall Out Boy’s only hit off this record, you will be sadly mistaken.
