The Kosmos and Beyond
Last weekend ruled!
As a follow up to the Kosmic Weekend blog, I would like to say that the weekend of May 7 was RAD. On Friday Panser Bjourn and Cloud Lantern played out at the Kosmos, it was the first show for both acts and the nervous excitement amplified the acoustic performances on it's own. Panser Bjourn won everyone's heart with complex and melodious mandolin riffs accompanied by his soft, windy vocals. Cloud Lantern is a new sound for Albuquerque, classically trained and unrestrained, the boys put on an impressively tight set using two percussionists, vocal looping, violin, cello and two classical guitars, that playfully dance back and forth.
I didn't make it to the show at the Kosmos on May 8, but I heard it was awesome. I was at the UNM Arts Lab, hearing from some of the experimental composing students there. It was very interesting.
