I Hear the Sadness Holler
By Captain America
Long before punks turned to Americana, local Hazeldine (née Blister) played the finest y’allternative music on bills with hard rockin’ Burque outfits like Elephant and the Drags. Hazeldine held its own. After an especially hot set you’d feel pleasantly washed-out, as if you’d just seen a raucous punk show.

While many are doomed to stumble around pouring cheap Champagne all over their lumpy bodies while dodging falling ammunition, you have the opportunity to spend New Year’s Eve with some of the koolest and most artful Albuquerque citizens. The Scrams, A Hawk and a Hacksaw, Raven Chacon, Sorority and DJ Caterwaul perform Thursday, Dec. 31, at Wonderbread (1016 Coal SW). Festivities begin at 9 p.m. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)

As a graphic artist, animator, toast-lover and member of the Alibi’s art department, Jeff Drew is a man of many hats—metaphorically and literally. When he’s not making art or analyzing the quality of various Downtown sandwiches, he makes jams under the name Caribou Music. He also has an excellent personal playlist series entitled Found Objects. Below is a sample of Drew’s shuffled tunes.

What's better than unplugging from social media? A lot of things, honestly. For example, Low Spirits is hosting an Unplugged Night this coming Saturday, Aug. 27, where musicians who normally rely on electronics (whether that's a MIDI board or guitar) perform, well, unplugged. Local favorites Joel and Jeremy from SuperGiant, Adam Hooks from Russian Girlfriends, Rueben Krussick of WholeHearted and Lilah Rose will be performing. Doors open at 8pm and tickets will be sold for $5 at the door. See? You don't have to get crazy to enjoy less technology in life.
