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). Newcomers Hoverbourd tag themselves as surf-

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. Blackbird Buvette • Sat Feb 9 • 10 pm • FREE • 21+ • View on Alibi calendar

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. O'Niell's Pub, Northeast Heights • 5-8 pm • $15-$20 • 21+ • deschutesbrewery.com

The Angel Babies at Blackbird Buvette tonight[ Fri Aug 31 2012 5:37 PM ]
New Mexico-born, Austin-bred trio The Angel Babies is embarking on a five-city tour in support of the threesome's self-titled full-length debut. The second stop is Burque, specifically the monthly rock and roll-centric No Fun Dance Party (hosted by DJ Bea and, coincidentally, Alibi music editor DJ Cassyle). Available in limited-press vinyl at the show, the album is a diverse listen. Its 12 songs range from postmodern corrido-style numbers to fuzzy, electronics-laced rockers to slow-burning and darkly ethereal tunes. New Mexico native Frankie Medina (Dirty Hearts, The Kill Spectors) and Calida Salazar share vocal duties. Preview the album at tinyurl.com/
