Tip-Top psych band the Pink Mountaintops at Low Spirits TONIGHT!

Play Youtube Video
Pink Mountaintops "North Hollywood Microwaves" (NSFW!)

The weirder and, in this writer's opinion, the more interesting of Stephen McBean's two mountain-named bands (the other being Black Mountain) the Pink Mountaintops is playing Low Spirits tonight. No self-respecting lover of drug music will miss this. My friend Pierre LaFarge turned me on to this Vancouver-based bunch of weirdoes a week or so ago and there's been nothing else on my speakers since. Can't wait for the sun to set so we can all see the Pink Mountaintops, who are touring in support of their new album Get Back. Did I mention the show is only TEN BUCKS!? C'mon!

Unnanounced Protest Brings APD Out In Force

APD Headquarters 3/30/14

The sirens have finally died in downtown Albuquerque. Choppers are still making noise in the sky above the city from Nob Hill west to the Downtown neighborhood where today hundreds of protesters marched in protest against the most recent APD shooting. Unfortunately, James Boyd (a homeless man who was camped out in the foothills of the Sandias) is not the most recent kill by APD, simply the most high profile.

Riot gear, screaming fast police cruisers and a generally intimidating tone were the order of the day for residents of Albuquerque, a city which has become internationally famous for the brutality of its police department. Consensus is that the Duke City has one of the most dangerous, out of control police departments in the nation. The FBI has opened a criminal investigation into James Boyd's death.
