Sabertooth Cavity Bites Into a Tour
Albuquerque's premier experimental noise band from the Cenozoic Era, Sabertooth Cavity, is getting its van road-ready and heading out.
Before journeying into California, Oregon and Washington on a 10-day trip, Sabertooth is hosting a tour kickoff show at 1014 Central SW on Thursday, July 30.
"We are at our best when we wake up in different places every day," explains Sabertooth guitarist Matt Galindo. "All we hope for is that we have a safe trip and maybe sell some records." The all-ages show begins at 8:30 p.m. with sets by comrades Death Convention Singers, Dread and DJ Caterwaul. It'll run you $5 to get in the door.
When Sabertooth gets back to Albuquerque, Galindo says he and the rest of his mates will chip away at a new record. He doesn't have a release date in mind for the album, but Galindo says some of the initial recordings have already been completed. Keep an eye on it at myspace.com/
A Tribute Fit for a King
The 24-hour news networks have stopped going Michael-
On Thursday, July 30, a gaggle of bands take turns paying tribute to the King of Pop at the Launchpad. Ya Ya Boom is bad and you know it. Zoltan Orkestar can't stop ’til it gets enough. Old Main wants to be starting something and 66 Guns blames all its problems on the boogie.
Jackson may have liked to hang out with kiddos, but only folks 21-and-over can get into the $5 show. It starts at 8:30 p.m.
Cracker • alternative rock • Camper Van Beethoven at Launchpad
Johnny Dango • hillbilly cosmic country, boogie, R&B at Adobe Bar at the Historic Taos Inn
