New Mexico band releases noise freak-out En Lak Ech

Don’t limit it by calling it music, man. Jazz derangements, electronic debris and heaving melts of guitar are just part of it. What Sabertooth Cavity offers up with its first album, En Lak Ech, is a little more meta. Or a little more Dada. However you want to take it.

Casablanca

New Downtown music venue opens inside Hotel Andaluz

It bummed me out when La Posada de Albuquerque closed in 2005. The lobby bar was one of my favorite places in Albuquerque—it was an elegant, jazz-filled, brown-and-white respite from the Downtown riffraff, the flashing neons, the ill-fitting fashions and questionable taste in mechanical beats. Little did I know that four years later the 1939 building—New Mexico native Conrad Hilton’s fourth hotel, and first outside of Texas—would open anew, having been reinvented as green boutique lodging. Hotel Andaluz not only has 107 rooms and suites, but also a fine Mediterranean-inspired restaurant (Lucia), rooftop bar (Ibiza) and, as of the end of January, a live music venue called Casablanca.

The Dirtbombs Party Store · Ryan Cohan Another Look · Toro Y Moi Underneath The Pine

Music reviews in 100 words or less

Named after the Detroit area's ubiquitous party stores (which sound like a place to buy balloons and bubblegum, but run more along the lines of cigs, malt liquor and bulletproof glass), The Dirtbombs’ new album is less soul, more dub and just as pass-out-in-the-back-of-the-car-with-no-pants-on rock and roll as any previous release. Party Store is all covers of Detroit techno tunes from the ’80s, and it sounds kinda like the PiL masterpiece Metal Box. For real. Buy the traditional format and it comes on three records just like Metal Box did. Sexiest record of 2011, so far. (GP)

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Dec 18)

Tilting to the Left, Nudging to the Right

Pinball Tournament • arcade games • Food Drive

As my friends in Rudest Priest say, “I may not get the high score, but then again I might/ I just wanna play a little pinball tonight.” And this Sunday, Dec. 18, it doesn't really matter if you get the high score, everybody wins because at this Pinball Tournament—sponsored by and held at Sister—is also a food drive. All pinball machines on site will be set to free to play from 4pm onward, so get there early and warm up your fingers. There's a $10 buy-in for the tournament, and while non-perishable food donations aren't required, I'm just going to say this: Don't be an asshole. You're not going to eat that canned corn.
