Mind Over Matter
Burque’s DIY culture emporiums of yore
Last month’s ABQ Zine Fest showed that in these days of instant blog gratification there is a resurgence in cut-and-paste words on paper. Our earlier local zine culture had diminished at the dawn of the aughts, but in the mid ’90s, zines were available at any number of shops in town. The mother lode of them all was Mind Over Matter.
Music to Your Ears
Phantogram makes a stop in Santa Fe this week and we’re giving away tickets to the show. Also, we think gear peddler Music Go Round is swell.

Buddy Guy • blues, R&B • Jonny Lang
Those who find some soulful and sublime succor in the blues can line up at the teat of heavenly kindness this coming weekend when blues legends Jonny Lang and Buddy Guy grace our city and state with their brilliantly bluesy countenances. The duo, on tour for part of the summer before they each embark on solo runs, have a gig at Sandia Casino Amphitheater on Saturday, Aug. 18 at 8pm. If you recall, Lang was the child prodigy who performed at the White House after being signed by A&M at the age of 15. And Buddy Guy, oh he was just was one of the house guitarists at Chess Records. En serio, the dude has influenced just about every electric guitarist who came after him, so we're not going to name names, but you know you can hear Guy's licks whilst listening to Page and Vaughn and Melchiondo. This is probably one of the best shows of the summer to catch. If you really wanna know, you better go. Starting at $30 per azure-stained unit, tickets are going quickly.
