Music to Your Ears

Before taking what is hopefully a short break from the live circuit, KI will play a “farewell” show on Saturday, Oct. 2, at the Launchpad with a veritable slew of kick-ass locals: The Dirty Novels, Hit By a Bus, Lousy Robot and Rage Against Martin Sheen. If you miss this one, you'll be missing KI for at least a handful of weeks. ... One of the best local band shows I've seen in ages happened two months ago at the YMCA. It was an all-ages, alcohol-free showcase that featured six local bands—mostly representing the younger set—and it turned out to be a searing testament to local talent. On Thursday, Oct. 7, the Mountainside YMCA will present its second local “Band It Together,” showcase featuring all-local bands at its branch location (12500 Comanche NE) from 7 to 10:30 p.m. Local heroes Unit 7 Drain are slated to headline. Call 292-2298 for more information. ... The world's first entirely online record label, ItsAboutMusic.com, launched five years ago to zero press, but has since grown into a digital entity representing some 200 artists (including Willie Nelson and other big-name acts) whose goal is to get their music to the masses without all the corporate bullshit that comes with major label record deals. At ItsAboutMusic.com, music is sold exclusively via the site, either through shipping CDs to customers or making purchased music immediately available for download. Affiliated artists enjoy wide distribution, CD-on-demand manufacturing and a publicity and promotion department to help push artists wares to the public. For more information, visit www.ItsAboutMusic.com.

Music On the Big Screen

Outpost Productions and the Guild Cinema join forces in presenting music-based films throughout October and beyond

From Oct. 4 through 21, the Guild Cinema will be alive with the sound—and sights—of music. Along with Outpost Productions, Albuquerque's only arthouse theater and popular bastion of films the big boys don't have the guts or foresight to play on their corporate-controlled screens will present "Music on the Big Screen," an ongoing series of music-centric documentaries, concert films and cinematic portraits of music makers of every stripe. From jazz pioneers to punk rock legends, "Music on the Big Screen" promises to be a tantalizing event for music and film fans alike. Beginning Monday, Oct. 4, the first three installments in the series will run three to four days each on consecutive weeks in October. The first installment features a trio of jazz-related filmworks.

Music Magnified

The Gris Gris

with The Foxx and the Mindy Set

Friday, Oct. 1; Burt's Tiki Lounge (21 and over, 9 p.m.): What do you get when you cross 13th Floor Elevators' mastermind Roky Erickson and Syd Barrett, the guy who was too crazy to be in Pink Floyd? You get one frighteningly twisted, satisfying stroll through blissed-out psychedelic pop—you get an evening with the Gris Gris.

Music Magnified

Dave Alvin & The Guilty Men

with The Wildcards

Tuesday, Oct. 5; Launchpad (21 and over, 8 p.m.): All the background I should really be able to get away with printing in a successful effort to get you to this show goes something like this: “Dave Alvin cofounded the Blasters.” But I wouldn't be doing my job.

Sonic Reducer

Earlimart Treble & Tremble (Palm Pictures)

In case you aren't through lamenting the loss of Elliott Smith, Earlimart has returned with a second album that's a sad, glimmering shoegaze remembrance of the late singer-songwriter without apologies. The thing is, Treble & Tremble also happens to be one of the prettiest damn records of the year, with its Beatles-esque popcraft and casual nod to lo-fi production techniques. Songwriter Aaron Espinosa drives the music with gentle piano-based melodies, which he leaves to simmer in sheets of low-key distortion and string-induced ebbs and swells. And with his gentle whisper, he does more than justice to Smith's legacy and memory.

Blink 182

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Sep 25)

Blink and You'll Miss It

Blink-182 • pop punk • A Day to Remember • hardcore • All Time Low • rock, emo

Blink-182 plays a type of popular music called pop-punk. And although British rock critic Steven Wells of NME dismissed them at the beginning of the century as “indistinguishable from the increasingly tedious 'teenage dirtbag' genre they helped spawn,” the band has had some notable influence…

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Sep 30)

'A Lot About Living'

Alan Jackson • country

As Ludwig von Beethoven once said, “Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.” Those words still carry weight, even now: a thousand years later. And you'll find no better example than the incomparable Alan Jackson, whose voice and countenance rival those of the gods, as though he were hewn from the heart of the sun itself. His honky tonk tunes—swords of righteous terror and beauty which melt the the eardrums of devotees, lost in reverie as they bathe in the glorious golden ambiance of his mustache. He'll be playing live at the Sandia Resort & Casino on Friday, Sept. 30. Take a gander.

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Sep 30)

Desert Sound

Chrome Sparks • electronic, indie pop

So Chrome Sparks apparently has a few hours open in his schedule to visit ABQ—somewhere in between juggling his gajillion other projects and fulfilling his role as busiest spacey electro-pop composer on the planet. New Mexico seems like the perfect place for those wide-open, expansive tunes of his. Maybe someone can talk him into posting up in the middle of the desert next time. Sound carries further at night and can have a a really spooky resonance. Just saying. This Friday, Sept. 30, he'll be wowwing the pants off of us at Sister Bar (which is indoors, unfortunately) starting at 9pm. Wear your clean undies.

EVENT HORIZON (Monday, Oct 3)

Two i's Are Better Than One

Miike Snow • indie, electro-pop

"I change shapes just to hide in this place, but I'm sure not going to hide from this concert." Ladies and gents, I am happy to report that Miike Snow, the Swedish electro-pop band of your dreams, will be performing at our very own Historic El Rey Theater. Imagine Alt-J and Dan Black created a musically inclined love child. The result would be something like Miike Snow. If that's too foreign an analogy, you'll just have to listen for yourself at 7pm on Monday, Oct. 3. Tickets are just $25-$40 but sorry kids, only ages 21+ for this one.

EVENT HORIZON (Wednesday, Oct 5)

Tome-ate-o, Tom-ato

Andrew Jackson Jihad • folk-punk • Diners • surf, indie rock • Kepi Ghoulie • punk folk

Once upon a time, back in 2004, in the distant land of Arizona, there was born a folk-punk band by the name of Andrew Jackson Jihad. It was a mouthful, so they decided to go by the acronym AJJ. Then they decided to formally change their name to that. Soon they'll be at the Launchpad. People in this town like to shit on the folk-punkers, but fuck those jerks. I already bought a ticket to this Launchpad show and I bet I'll be buying band merch, too, at this kick-ass show starting at 8pm on Oct. 5.
