Interview With an Angry Samoan
Gregg Turner is alive and well in Santa Fe, and playing the hits
Gregg Turner is known to most as a founding member of the Angry Samoans, a Los Angeles hardcore band that began in 1978. He is also known, perhaps, to a different slice of the population as a record reviewer for Creem Magazine (1976-1998) where he was noted for his inspired hatchet jobs on the likes of Bon Jovi, The Who and even Iggy Pop.
A Question of Scale
Laurie Anderson’s shrunk her setup and grown her sound
Though "Dirtday!" was initially intended to be an instrumental work, lyrics started creeping in—then a narrative, then a flood of them. "It's a long shaggy dog of a story that goes between politics, economics, dreamscapes, theories, personal stories, and it's glued together by this weird violin."

I can’t think of better imagery to represent DJ Wae Fonkey’s ‘80s disco / funk / R & B / hip-hop-based night. Bust a move with the fresh DJ and dancer on Friday, Sept. 14, starting at 10 p.m. at Blackbird Buvette (509 Central NW). (JCC)

Show & Tell • Preschool For Adults • variety
Ah, the safety of childhood. For at least some of us the early years were not as fraught and demanding as the adult world. There was plenty of time to pretend, explore and grow. Contrariwise there's hardly enough time after the age of majority occurs to keep track of the adventures, much less make sure that they are wholesome, fun and embrace the sense of safety and freedom that some kids grow up on. Well, the news is that on Tuesday, Jan. 30, you can have a little bit of that childhood innocence back (but not all of it; nobody knows any 10-year-olds with tattoos and a proclivity for horrorcore and Jaegermeister, after all) by participating in Show and Tell: Preschool for Adults. It's be happening Downtown at one of our city's most comfortable and convenient nightspots, so feel free to dress down in your jammies, just like you do when headed for Walmart. JK. This awesome night of childishly fun yet seriously adult indulgences is free and begins at 8pm, Moonlight Lounge.
