The Next Decade of Sound
By Jessica Cassyle Carr
As the aughts are filed away in the annals of time, we look to the future and consider what’s to come in the next decade. What will it sound like?

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.
Boyz II Men • R&B
By August March
On Sunday, Feb. 14, the Legends Theater at Route 66 Casino presents a concert by romantic balladeers and masters of a capella ruminations on love and life, Boyz II Men. An R&B group (now a trio, formerly and originally a quartet) with an affinity for soulful musical wanderings through the heart of human affection, Boyz II Men first made the scene in the 1990s with radio-friendly hits like “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love to You” and “One Sweet Day,” an epic tune to forever love they recorded with super-chanteuse Mariah Carey. In the years since they rose to the top of the pops, one member, Michael McCary departed the ensemble, leaving an essential trio comprised of tenors Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris as well as baritone Nathan Morris. Together, these three still bring the flavor of love to life as they tour around a gratefully enchanted planet of men and women. Tickets for this all-ages performance range in price from $35-$70 while romance fills the air beginning at 8pm.
