I often feel that the wonder inherent in the New Mexico music scene is an amazingly well-kept secret. This week’s live music forecast supports that hypothesis. Whether you’re in search of avant-garde/magic realist/aural alt.history, gothic Americana, alt.country/indie pop or twangy indie rock, Music to Your Ears has you covered. Peep related A/V below.

Nativity in rock, jazz hands, punk sundae and marrow-melting psych

In an attempt to economically cover eclectic shows, we shook the music section format up a bit. This week’s Shows Up! proffers aural sweets for music lovers of all stripes. Whether they’re into Native rock and roll, jazz, post-punk or marrow-melting psych rock, live music fans have no reason to be bored this week. Tonight, check out Nativity in rock at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) during Rock the 9 or cruise to The Fe for the touring version of the Monterey Jazz Festival. If you head north on Friday, there’s more yummy punk to lap up, and, on Tuesday, Canadian psych-rock fivesome Black Mountain hypnotizes at Launchpad. Peep related A/V below. Low Spirits • Rock the 9 • Dawa • I Conscious • Ed Kabotie • Jim Ruel • Thu Apr 25 • 9 pm • $10 • 21+ • lowspiritslive.com

Death Convention Singers CD Release

Cobra//group first materialized in the high desert in 2004. Nine years later, what may be the Southwest's largest “non-classical nor mariachi” band continues conjuring an unorthodox, radical sound. In 2010, three massive tracks were recorded by 18 members under their new nom de guerre, Death Convention Singers. To create this latest, self-titled work, 10 bass guitars, two drum kits, a banjo, a clarinet, a turntable toy and a violin were all jacked into an enormous mixer and deejayed using the board’s mute function. I dug this album, but Brujasis my all-time favorite entry in their catalog; listen to it in the dark, and you'll see what I mean: bit.ly/dcsbrujas. Naming all the members takes up too much dead tree space, but at least 15 of them are slated to perform. This concert takes the vs. format to a whole new level with simultaneous improv performances by DCS-adjacent projects: Alchemical Burn, Bigawatt, Fando, (H)Ohm, I CUM DRUMS, Ipytor Gavyen Machislav, Lionhead Bunny and TAHNZzz. Out-of-this-world opener Space Station Gusher meshes Gusher, Uranium Worker, Heyisayfuckyou and more. This 21-and-over gig cranks up at 9 p.m. on Friday, March 29, and admission is only five bucks.
