Music to Your Ears

Moonshine Champagne—What is this magnetic force that attracts people to banjos, barefeet and overalls? I haven't been able to quite figure out what it is, but you guys can't seem to get enough bluegrass in this city. And now there's a permanent home for the stuff at the Windchime Champagne Gallery (Downtown, just east of Sixth Street on Central). Windchime mastermind G. Larribas says the gallery will host traditional and contemporary bluegrass performances every Wednesday night from here on out, starting with The Duke City Swamp Coolers on April 19. Keep an eye on our “Music Calendar” listings for new acts each week.

We Love You Guys

Free show, Friday, April 14, at Warehouse 21 in Santa Fe (1814 Paseo de Peralta, all-ages). The text at the bottom says, “1. Zombie rock. Mothers lock up your daughters. 2. Albuquerque's finest. 3. A behemoth slab of destruction. Members of The Battle's End, Bravura Corvid, The Cherry Tempo, Black Water Flood, etc. 4. Do you like crying? Because they do. 4. Do you like Satan? Debut show.” We totally love you guys. (LM)

Show Up!

Emergenza Festival

Four nights of furious rock ’n' roll battles

The second installment of the Emergenza Festival in Albuquerque returns to the Launchpad this Thursday. With a stellar lineup of local mainstays like Caustic Lye, The Dirty Novels, Hit by a Bus and The Gracchi, you'll stay entertained until “hangover Monday” rears its discombobulated head. What follows is a breakdown of the action intended to give you some idea of what to expect on each of the four nights. Like all good competitions, however, unpredictable scheduling changes are inevitable and it should be noted that the intricacies of all the bands cannot be adequately espoused in the amount of space that this “Show Up” provides. Here, then, is your night-by-night summary of what's to come:

Al Dente and Lester Moore want to know: Are   you    a Vanilla Pop tart?
Amy Dalness


It's Smooth, It's Sweet, It's Vanilla Pop

Vanilla Pop croons over three years at Martini Grille

Here's a common scene: A young man leans against the bar, making a phone call to, let's say, his roommate. He chats for a minute, tells his buddy to come over for a drink and puts the phone away. A simple scene, causing no general hubbub or hilarity—unless it's at the Martini Grille on Wednesday night.

Torture Victim

Music Magnified

The All-Metal Weekend

at Puccini's Golden West Saloon

Torture Victim

Friday, April 14, and Saturday, April 15, Puccini's Golden West Saloon (21-and-over); $5: “Metal lives!,” so sayeth Albuquerque. This city's always been a fan of the genre. It's in Burqueños' teeth, in our bones, and no matter what incarnation it takes on, it outlasts most other rock genres built on chintzy tin and fickle fans.

Sic Alps

Music Magnified

Sic Alps

Wednesday, April 19, Atomic Cantina (21-and-over); Free: Listening to the Sic Alps is a little like watching a race car with wobbly wheels. It's the precursor to a wreck, but for now, the thing's still traveling.

Sonic Reducer

Soular Waiting for Tomorrow · Various Artists Now Latino--Esto Es Musica! · Mon Frere Blood Sweat & Swords

Albuquerque-based ambient indie rock revitalizers Soular create melody-driven soundscapes that are both foreboding and serene; Marsh Shamburger's vocals resemble a slightly more cheerful Thom Yorke (Radiohead). “Where Do We Go” is a Queen- and Bowie-influenced melodic masterpiece infused with several guitar and bass themes that drift in and out of the song's primary structure. Other strong points include the lyrically clichéd but musically innovative opening track “American Dream” and the lead bass-driven “So, This is the Way it Feels.” Waiting for Tomorrow's underproduced sound gives us a taste of the potency ingrained in the band's live show.
