Ayéré Yéré With Oumar Konaté, Afro-pop guitarist
By August March [ Wed May 14 2014 8:30 AM ]
Guitar virtuoso Oumar Konaté puts on two concerts in Burque this week. Tomorrow, May 15, Konaté performs a high-noon gig at Ernie Pyle Library (900 Girard SE) and an evening show at The Cooperage (7220 Lomas NE), a swanky steakhouse at the edge of the Northeast Heights. Konaté is from Goa, Mali, and he represents a new generation of phenomenal instrumentalists and performers rising up out of Africa with a sound that renders world music a postmodern force driven by passion and intensity matched with awesome chops and classically educated sophistication, too.
Addoh, the guitarist’s first international release, explores the tenuous political situation in his homeland, and his searing guitar lends evocative, narrative weight to the struggle for peace and justice this man has witnessed. Besides gigging as a totally awesome solo performer, Konaté has worked with legendary African artists Roberto Magic and Siddi Toure as well as serving a stint as guitarist and arranger for the prestigious orchestra of Mali’s National Institute of Arts. His first US solo tour in 2012 featured a performance at Lincoln Center. Duke City is honored to have the likes of Konaté perform anywhere in town. The all-ages library concert is free, but tickets for the 21-plus concert at The Cooperage are 17 clams in advance and $22 on day of show. Tickets are available via AMP Concerts and Hold My Ticket. Doors swing wide at 6pm, and the concert begins at 7:30pm. The Cooperage • Thu May 15 • 7:30pm • $17-$22 • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar

Bluegrass in the Shade With the Adobe Brothers
By August March [ Sat Nov 30 2013 9:00 AM ]
A most excellent thing to do this weekend would be visiting with and having a listen to the Adobe Brothers, one of Burque’s most listenable combos. This goal can be readily accomplished by trucking on over to Shade Tree Custom Cycles and Café (3411 Central NE) tonight. The freewheeling Nob Hill grub-and-tire joint hosts a performance by Jacoby, Moby, Pierogi and Toby Adobe, starting 'round 7pm. The Brothers describe their music as “international bluegrass” in Americana form. While that's certainly a decent description of their output, the chops on these four gentlemen relatives—plus the awesome musical cred they carry around in their gig bags—are well worth the attention of local music aficionados. With over 200 numbers in their repertoire, you're bound to find some twangy tunes to get you onto the dance floor. Shade Tree is just up the road a ways from the Guild and across the street from some joint called Flying Star. Jump on in, 'cause the bluegrass is just fine.

FemCity Connection Lunch
By Rebecca Gonzales [ Thu Oct 31 2013 4:00 PM ]
They say that good deals and great ideas happen over food, which is why a professional lunch can have many opportunities. FemCity Albuquerque will host author Jessica Eaves Mathews at a connection luncheon tomorrow at Savoy Bar and Grill (10601 Montgomery). At the event, Matthews will discuss her book, Wonder Women: How Western Women will Save the World, with the public and, true to the book’s mission, aims to empower and motivate local women. The book frankly discusses politics, the national debt and economic issues rooted in the customary approach to business. After a drawn out government shutdown and an only increasing national debt problem, maybe some practical local solutions and a change of mind would do the community a little good. The connection lunch begins at 11:30am. FemCity Albuquerque members can buy tickets for $45 and others can purchase them for $55. Tickets include an elegant lunch—complete with a glass of wine—and a raffle. For more information on the event or Femfessionals Albuquerque, visit femfessionals.com or FemCity Albuquerque's Facebook page. Savoy Bar and Grill • Fri Nov 1 • 11:30am • $45 for FemCity members, $55 for non-members • View on Alibi calendar

Get Your Schwervon: Hoverboard • Schwervon! • The Blackout Disciples • Get Action
By Captain America [ Wed May 15 2013 11:45 AM ]
Blackbird Buvette serves up an inaugural springtime rock and roll bash on its tiny back porch. It’s pretty cramped, but it’s as close to a DIY basement show as you can get … while having drinks served. This show is a who’s-who of the best garage rockers still standing (no overdoses or wheelchairs). Drum legend Joe Bolt debuts The Blackout Disciples' dark and dirty rock sans evil posturing. Other Dirty Novels alums—Dandee Fleming and Brian Keith—and Demarcus Sumter (St. Petersburg), Billy Miles Brooke (Pan!c) and Ben Woods (Porter Draw) make up the group. Punk and roll outfit Get Action (formerly Riley Switch) features bad boy Bill Bunting (Ten Seconds to Liftoff), Scott Brown (Song Thing) and Ashley Floyd and Jeff Jones (both ex-Gracchi).

The Bells: A Night of Poe Inspired Music
By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Fri Feb 8 2013 5:00 PM ]
American Romantic author Edgar Allen Poe's stories of love and horror have long inspired sonic interpretation. Composers like André Caplet, Rachmaninoff and Nikita Koshkin all created aural tributes to his work. Modern music is likewise littered with references to the macabre maven's tales. From country and folk singers like Jim Reeves, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez to metal acts like Nightwish, Iron Maiden and Cradle of Filth, songs influenced by Poe's yarns are omnipresent. As part of the 2013 Poe Festival, local musicians gather to pay homage to the writer at Blackbird Buvette (509 Central NW) tomorrow night. Starting at 10 p.m., Ladies Society of Grenadiers, The Great Depression, Barney Lopez, Chris Walsh and Ryan Sciarrotta rock “The Bells” at this free, 21-and-over concert.

Deschutes Base Camp Week: Hats Off to Homebrewers
By Ty Bannerman [ Tue Oct 23 2012 11:39 AM ]
The guys from Deschutes Brewery, purveyor of Mirror Pond Ale and Obsidian Stout, are in town for Base Camp Week, a craft beer celebration. There will be events all around town, from a White IPA release party at Seasons Rotisserie & Grill to a tasting at Jubilation, and appearances by, um, "a giant traveling beer barrel named Woody." But the event I'm most excited about is the Hats Off to Homebrewers workshop tonight at O'Niell's Pub on Juan Tabo. Deschutes brewer David Brendgard will be offering advice to local do-it-your-selfers on improving their beer. He'll also be giving away recipe books, bags of hops and other complimentary brewing supplies. A crew from La Cumbre Brewing will be on tap to talk shop, too. Plus, O'Niell's will offer a special menu starting at 6 p.m. and pair it with selected beers for the occasion. $20 gets you in the door—$15 if you're a member of the American Homebrewers Association.
