Music to Your Ears

100

Seven years and 99 performances ago, the Bosque House Concerts were almost another New Mexican What If—a fantastic idea that, somewhere along the way, disappears into the lazy obscurity of mañana. But praise la Virgen de Guadalupe! After this week's Sunday, Aug.12, show, the Bosque House Concerts will have collected a nice round number's worth of happy memories. The 100th Bosque House Concert will also be its last.

See? Arms.
Courtesey of St. Vincent

Spotlight

Kind of St. Vincent

Armloads of brainpower make for strong album

St. Vincent is not Annie Clark's alter-ego. "It's more like an alter ... I don't know. Just an alter," says the ambiguous multi-instrumentalist and self-proclaimed nerd.

Sonic Reducer

Danbert Nobacon and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts The Library Book of the World · Over the Rhine The Trumpet Child · The Section Quartet Fuzzbox

Danbert Nobacon is one of those crazy genius musicians. Nobacon's folksy rock is part meticulously calculated political poetry, part ad hoc ramblings of a man holding on to reality's edge with the strum of his guitar. Just in case there is any doubt of his mental dispostion, he repeatedly outs the voices in his head in "The Last Drop in the Glass" and again in "Information Storm," beating the point to a pulp. His earthy, impassioned voice casts a charming line, baiting and hooking willing ears to his message. Whether or not the message is understood isn't the point—just that it's heard. [AD]

Music Profile

A Man and His Portable Amp

Local troubadour explores his city through sound

The clincher is a 9-volt amp peeking from his back pocket. You've seen this man before. Maybe he was shuffling through Downtown, maybe up near Nob Hill or down in Old Town, this guy who ambles and noodles on an electric guitar. This dude who skips muffled, dirty sounding chords down sidewalks, off storefront windows, into alcoves like stones across water.

Show Up!

Santa Fe Musik Fest

Rising tents and stages liven up view of the Downs

Santa Feans watched the eight-foot letters, made of painted rocks laid on grass, slowly fade over time. "The Downs at Santa Fe" it said. The letters fell to disrepair as the venue fell to disuse.

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 are swords of righteous terror and beauty which melt the eardrums…

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…

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…

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…

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Oct 9)

Hit 'em with the High and the Low

Palisades • electronicore • It Lives, It Breathes • post-hardcore • Darke Complex • metal

There is a rhythmic connection between genres dubstep and metalcore. One band that's done phenomenal in this kind of mashup (referred to as electronicore) is Palisades originating from Iselin, N.J. Having been to their last show in town, I can guarantee that they put on an equally energetic and high quality show, which makes sense because after going on over 20 tours in the last four years, they are likely to have nearly perfected their performance technique. These guys just don't quit—or take a break for that matter—and I'm glad they haven't. In addition to the supporting bands It Lives, It Breaths and Darke Complex this is going to be a good fucking time. They'll be in town on Sunday, Oct. 9, at the gem of a locale, Blu Phoenix Venue,and tickets are only $8! Doors open at 6pm, and it's likely to be packed so get there on time (or early).
