The Soul of Maxwell

Romantically sweeping and deeply funky, Maxwell’s Urban Hang Suite defined the neo-soul movement in the late '90s. Maxwell himself will give one helluva concert on Sunday, Aug. 17, at 7:30pm at Route 66 Casino’s Legends Theater (14500 Central SW), performing work from his back catalog as well as recent stuff. After engaging a two-decade-long career arc that careened from classic to confounding, Maxwell released BLACKsummers’night to commercial and critical acclaim in 2009, once again establishing himself as the prime mover in an otherwise unpredictably bifurcating subgenre.

His rich, sometimes ornate take on rhythm and blues has earned Gerald Maxwell Rivera, noted for his physically intense performance style as well as grooved-out melodicism, two Grammy Awards, a dozen Grammy nominations and all kinds of metal-coated records too. Though his latest compositions reflect the maturity that comes from surviving the record industry and the '90s, the work is still highly diggable with sensuous overtones and a crisp, starry finish. All of that groove, past and present, can be yours for the evening. Tickets range in price from 55 to 125 clams. If you go, it will be totally fortunate, dig?

Bad Moon Revisited

A band called Creedence Clearwater Revisited plays Route 66 Casino tomorrow night. Their repertoire includes a heap of tunes by seminal Americana band Creedence Clearwater Revival, but don’t get the two confused. There will be nary a mention of anyone named Fogerty at this upcoming concert, though I'm sure the latter folks are partially responsible for writing the tuneage being explored on this and subsequent tours. Don’t get confused; it’s a familiar story in rocanrol: Founding members leave a once-mighty band. Sometimes, those remaining still wanna rock out for silver and other treasure. They want to use a name that listeners will be familiar with, buy tickets for and, when called upon, remember favorite songs by …

But courtroom hijinks usually ensue. In this case, Stu Cook and Doug Clifford, the rhythm section of Southern rock giant CCR, eventually won the right to use part of the name of a band fronted by John Fogerty and his brother Tom. The whole CCR debacle has been one of the most acrimonious adventures in the history of electrified guitar music, but the current lineup continues to rely on John’s output and Tom’s memory for the meaty parts of its performances. In other words, they’re a great cover band. Creedence Clearwater Revisited plays Legends Theater (14500 Central SW) tomorrow starting at 8pm. Tickets for this all-ages gig range from $25 and $40.

Bringin' the Glory Holm

via Holly Holm's Twitter

A hook to the right, a kick to the side, over, under ... just a mere glimpse of the jargon I'd hear while watching MMA fights with my brother. Moments like this captured the epic mentality that went with watching a sport where people beat each other up for glory and some cold, hard cash. When it's a fight between opponents of formidable talent, it's always reason to take a closer look and maybe even throw some money in the pool. Albuquerque's very own MMA superstar Holly Holm is scheduled to have an intense bout with Juliana Werner in the Legacy 30 Fighting Championship.

Welterweight Holm is an Albuquerque icon who was once named Ring Magazine's female Fighter of the Year and has numerous wins in both her boxing and MMA careers. It's no small feat that Holm is still an undefeated MMA champ, so if Werner is gonna be the one to change that, she's gotta bring all her force into those jabs and kicks. The fight happens tomorrow at 7pm at Route 66 Casino's Legends Theater (14500 Central SW). Tickets for the all-ages match range from $30 to $200. But aim for front row. After all, that's where the action happens. Legends Theater @ Route 66 Casino • Fri Apr 4 • 7pm • $30-$200 • View on Alibi calendar
