Music to Your Ears

And the Weird Music News of the Week Award Goes to ...

OPM Nightclub and Ultralounge! You may already know that the self-proclaimed "VIP" dance club is actually one half of dual-city enterprise—there's one in Las Vegas, Nev., (Caesar's Palace) and one in downtown Albuquerque (two blocks from the railroad tracks). What you didn't know is that one was voted the No. 1 "Upscale Hip-Hop Nightclub in the World," supposedly by more than one milllion voters in the Yahoo Readers’ Poll. The other is closing after this weekend. Bet you can't guess which is which!

New CDs from New Orleans Musicians Raise Hell and Hope

Musicians remind us why New Orleans matters

Thanatos and Eros, that timeless couple, never dance closer than when in New Orleans, where every breeze carries scents of mortality and carnality. So maybe it shouldn’t come as a surprise that despite the devastation of Katrina, the indifference of the Bush administration, and the incompetence of the Army Corps of Engineers, the city is showing small signs of a resurgence.

Sonic Reducer

Cult Screamin' Target Heart Rate · Kevin Hume The Truth About Ants and Aphids · Band of Heathens Live from Momo's

Serious? No, but seriously good, 4real. Frontman Shane O'Neill screams of slumber parties and cutting a bitch's throat because she stole his lip gloss—and lots of other stuff, like casual Friday and a dude who's 20 percent gay. "OMG" shows up in the lyrics. Maybe all this sounds dumb, but it's his delivery that makes it kinda genius. Plus, the band kicks mondo ass—tight, simple punk rock that's unafraid to be goofy. It's rare that something so artsy and yet so rowdy and funny comes across this desk. [MD]

Franks and Deans

EVENT HORIZON (Thursday, Feb 23)

Buoyant and Rambling

Franks & Deans • punk rock, rock 'n' roll • Shrewd • Punctured Muffler • Silent Crush • metal

At some point during the progression of meta-ultra-postmodernism, it was only natural that a band covering Rat Pack tunes revisioned as rambling ska paeans or blisteringly buoyant punk anthems based on the imbibing and love-making habits of dudes like Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin would rise from the rocanrol cauldron. Well it's 2017 and such has indeed come to pass. The name of the band is Franks & Deans. They've succeeded by inflecting the sweepingly romantic, sometimes melancholy and nearly always self-referential ditties of these post-war, pre-rock vocal heroes with good-natured rhythms and danceable guitar leads—as well as an updated fashion sense that seems to borrow more from ZZ Top's summer style guide than from Robin and the 7 Hoods—that adds affable nuance to legendary, mid-century American popular music. Band members Rob DeTie, Mike "Pip" Ullemeyer, Hoss and Sampson await your indulgence at Low Spirits on Thursday, Feb. 23, and the admission price of $5 sure as heck beats dropping “Three Coins in the Fountain.”
