Music to Your Ears

See You at the Crossroads--“Variety keeps up busy,” explains Crossroads lead singer Joy Baca. Well, that and extensive touring throughout the Southwest, two CDs and a working pedigree that stretches back almost 20 years must keep all eight members pretty busy too. But maybe Baca's referring to the enormous range of styles the group spans.

Music Magnified

Student Film and The Hex

Sunday, Aug. 13, Atomic Cantina (21-and-over); Free: One unfortunate thing about Albuquerque is that it's an inconvenient stop on a band's tour—kind of out-of-the-way, really, depending on where the group is coming from. That's a big deal when you're on the Cheetos-til-you-puke, pocket-change-equals-another-mile tour. It means you might not want to spend a precious big-money Friday or Saturday night in a town that's a few hundred mile off-the-trek diversion from middle America to California or Phoenix.

Opus Dai: Hang on tight.

Music Magnified

Opus Dai

with Left Brain and Five Minute Sin

Tuesday, Aug. 15, Burt’s Tiki Lounge (21-and-over); Free: Imagine yourself on a bus with no one on it except you and the driver. Suddenly, the bus lurches forward and the bus driver reaches back to where you’re sitting and places his hand on your knee. He tells you, “We’re going to be OK,” as he gives you a yellow-toothed but sincere grin. With that, he launches the bus, careening out of control, until finally you go crashing through a glass-walled building. As the bus comes to a halt, you realize that, save for a few glass shards in your lap, you are completely unscathed and after seeing that your body is intact, the driver shoots you another grin as he exits the vehicle.

Sonic Reducer

The Build The Build · The Pharmacy B.F.F. · The You For the Masses

Albuquerque’s post-rock/instrumental rock outfit The Build has put together its first full-length release, recorded, mixed and mastered by the Oktober People’s Sean McCullough. “Sleep Tyrants” and “Allies of the Seahorse” are perhaps the best examples of sound walls that are constructed and immediately torn to shreds, but the dual-guitar leads and unpredictable drums keep the album from reaching any major low points. The tunes are better with live show fog, but The Build and McCullough do an admirable job of capturing the band’s live sound.

Together they’ll perform work both translucent and opaque as they transport listeners to a world without sonic boundaries. Tickets range from $15-20 for this transcendent trip.
