Performance Review
Eugene Ionesco's Macbett may be classic absurdist theater, but it is powerful in its view of the state of the world today. Though overflowing with gore, betrayal and lust, it still offers a few good laughs.

Travis Browne and Donald Cerrone Fight tonight

Local transplants hope to light up UFC on Fox 11

Ari LeVaux
Travis Browne discusses his upcoming fight, his nickname, his elbows and teammate Holly Holm.

Travis Browne and Donald Cerrone, two Jackson-Winkeljohn prospects, grace the UFC on Fox card tonight, with the main card starting at 6pm.

Here's a recent interview I did with Travis Browne, in my capacity as a reporter for BloodyElbow.com, about this fight and other topics, like the violent elbows he lands on people who try to take him down. The interview happened behind the Rt. 66 casino the night of Holly Holm's recent fight, on April 4.

Sorry for the hum during the interview! The ambulance behind us was running, which did something weird to my camera's audio.

As far as why the video is stuck in the right hand margin behind some ads, I have no idea. [UPDATE: Fixed. Sorry about that.] So here's a link to my story on Bloody Elbow.

Rooster Roundabout: This week’s music highlights

Yup, watching Belle and Sebastian cover Journey's “Don't Stop Believin'” for a group of kids at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta might be the cutest thing in music this week. You can check that out below, but you might need to have a tissue handy.

A few weeks ago, I posted a track from Buzz Osborne's upcoming solo acoustic album This Machine Kills Artists. And now King Buzzo has posted another snippet from that forthcoming record, which, despite being acoustic, is pretty heavy and dark. But that's a good thing. You can hear his new song (“Drunken Baby”) by heading over to A.V. Club.

For those of you that think Lana Del Rey is all that and a bag of stale potato chips, the moment you've waited for is finally here. The singer-songwriter has come out with the first track from her upcoming sophomore LP Ultraviolence. Some blogs have already touted the tune as the “song of the summer.” Getting ahead of yourselves much? But I'll let y'all be the judge of that. You can listen to “West Coast” below.

I guess it’s only appropriate that I mention tomorrow is Record Store Day. Not only is it a way to promote shopping at your local record stores, it opens your horizons to new and exciting music emerging from the depths of post-Top 40-whatever. Meh ... political correctness aside, I’m not much of a fan of Record Store Day. Most record stores don’t carry the releases the peak my interests, and sometimes it makes me wonder whether it’s a trick to get you into the stores in the first place. Regardless, you’ll probably see me at Mecca tomorrow. But you can read Pitchfork’s top Record Store Day Releases by clicking here.

Hmmm... trippy sound effects, a slick guitar riff quietly sneaking around the bush and lush vocals … The Black Keys' new tune (the title track from their forthcoming Turn Blue) isn't half bad. I just may be tricked into hearing more. Could this be a change of heart or a momentary lapse of judgment? I don't know, but it's one good ditty. I'm impressed, Keys. The tune should tide fans over till May 13, when the album hits stores. Preach on!

I'll admit that the only reason I decided to write about this follow-up item is because Kelley Deal is involved. Sure, everyone knows about her sister Kim (Pixies, Breeders, Amps, etc.), but Kelley Deal is a good songwriter in her own right. Check out The Kelley Deal 6000 if you haven't yet. Now Deal is featured on a track by Motel Beds (“Tropics in The Sand”). It's supposed to be on a split 7-inch that'll be out on Record Store Day, but you can hear the track over at Stereogum if you don't plan on participating. Cause why would you do that anyways?

The only stuff I've heard from The Pains of Being Pure at Heart were tracks on a compilation album I got for free at Austin City Limits. And I don't even remember the names of the songs; that's how out of touch I am. But they've shared a new track via SoundCloud, and if I can describe it in one word: cute. It doesn't hit hard like Bass Drum of Death, but it's not overtly twee like She & Him. It holds a nice place in the middle. Let's call it cute without the “e.” Wait, that spells “cut.” That doesn't work. Just listen to the damn thing.

Well this just seems to be a good week for streaming albums in full ahead of their release dates. You can head over to NPR to listen to Kelis' new record Food. And you can head over to The New York Times to listen to Eels' The Cautionary Tales of Mark Oliver Everett. And then head over to Consequence of Sound to listen to Nas' Illmatic XX reissue. Thank your kind publications for letting you get a sneak peak before you go purchase these albums … assuming you will actually purchase them.

If you ever wanted to see Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age play a disappointing gay man … here's your chance.

Alibi Midnight Movie Madness Presents: Rotgut

Play Youtube Video

When Alibi film editor Devin D. O’Leary (yup, that’s me) isn’t busy writing about movies or talking about movies on “KASA-2 Style” or hosting Midnight Movies at the Guild Cinema, he occasionally finds time to actually make them. Recently he (that is to say “I”) wrote and produced the horror-comedy Rotgut. Shot right here in Albuquerque with a local cast and crew, the film is finally getting its long-awaited World Premiere. The low-budget gala event will take place this Friday and Saturday, April 18 and 19, at the Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE) starting at 10:30pm. Tickets are $8 general admission and $6 students. The cast and crew will be there to participate in a post-film Q&A/meet-and-greet. To give you a little taste of what demented entertainment you’re in for, check out the trailer above.
