Rowdy’s Dream Blog #333: Trouble at the Museum

I arrive at a museum. G and my family go in ahead of me. I decide to buy the $10 ticket instead of the $15 one. I ask my sister if she's seen G. She tells me instead about some great surprise our mother has found. I walk down a hallway on the third level. I grab hold of a portal pillar made of mud and stone and peer down into the courtyard below. Under wooden vegas covered with vines I see some sheep grazing. The partition I'm holding crumbles and falls. I close my eyes and wait for the crash but hear only silence. I stroll away nonchalantly.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #323: Alien Embryos

My sister and I search a building for alien embryos. We find a lot of them. Our mother arrives to show us her new, high quality, blue-tinged, sticky-backed, crisp register tape she got from the candy machine.

Deerhoof vs. Sister

Rocanrol/pop experimentalist outfit Deerhoof plays a much-anticipated concert at Sister (407 Central NW) tonight. The show is being advertised as an “early show,” so plan to get there just after dark. The 21-and-over house starts rocking at 6pm, and admission is 10 bucks. And in case you wanna know, Deerhoof ain’t a bunch of phonies either. Next in line to hold the key to the kingdom of the rock avant-garde, Deerhoof has the temporal cred and musical sense of wonder necessary to do something really cool with the same door-opening implement previously held up by folks like The Velvet Underground, The Plastic Ono Band, David Bowie, Sonic Youth, Radiohead and The Flaming Lips. Impossible to describe as well as to forget, an evening in the company of Satomi Matsuzaki, John Dieterich, Ed Rodriquez and Greg Saunier is sure to open up whatever doors of perception still block your transcendence, dear reader. Well-dressed Varsovian duo LXMP and local act Teetotum opens. So, yeah. Deerhoof. Sister. Tonight. Early. Dayum. Sister • Mon Nov 11 • 6pm • $10 • View on Alibi calendar

Our Haunted Sister

Orange Goblin • Holy Grail • heavy metal • Lazer/Wulf • experimental metal

London-based stoner metal stalwart Orange Goblin has been wrecking necks for 18 years. In its first year, the band went by the moniker Our Haunted Kingdom, but since '95, the name Orange Goblin has been synonymous with oh-so-heavy. Check out some of the group's seven full-lengths—Frequencies from Planet Ten, Time Travelling Blues, Coup de Grace and Healing Through Fire are personal faves—and experience the fearsome foursome live at Sister (407 Central NW) tonight. Admittance to the 21-and-over gig—also featuring Holy Grail and Lazer/Wulf—is 10 bones. Pop in your earplugs and start drooling over OG vocalist Ben Ward's luscious locks at 9pm.

This Saturday August 24: Leeches of Lore only $5 at Sister.

Sister’s ad in this week’s Alibi erroneously indicated that Saturday’s Leeches of Lore show had a $15 cover charge. Not so. It’s only $5. My fault. Sorry everyone.

Who’s playing at Sister this week?

Like, especially, who’s playing Friday and Saturday?

Well, you can’t find out from their ad in the Alibi this week because we (I) screwed up and lost the ad for Sister in the shuffle. But most notably at Sister, this week:

Friday, May 31, catch an ear-crunching, face-melting stoner-rock assault from Albuquerque’s super-heavy SuperGiant, teaming up with rockabilly favorite Cowboys and Indian. The show starts at 10 p.m. and tickets are $5.

The following night, Saturday June 1, Sister invites you to pull out your fancy dance moves, drink some delicious Beat Sauce and spend an evening wiggling and jiggling to the spinning of DJ Nicolatron, Brendangerous, Dirt Girl, Ben Bitten and a special visual dessert from Benji Geary.

I heard all of your friends are going to both shows.

Infamous, “Albatross” and Americana

There’s been a resurgence of ’90s-famous acts, many of whom continued creating sonic art long after their 15 minutes of fame. Corrosion of Conformity’s fourth album, Deliverance, was in regular rotation in my headbanging collection as a youngster. I didn’t discover Mobb Deep until much later, but I’m a fan of their early work. Read all about where you can witness performances by the aforementioned acts and Danzig, as well as Texan singer-songwriter Hayes Carll in this week’s Music to Your Ears. Scope related A/V below.
