Now Hear This, Vol. II

Samantha Anne Carrillo

Are you properly caring for your inner goth? My years of rockin' an all-black wardrobe, a Wite-Out complexion and panda eyes may be over, but I take care to nourish my blackety-black heart and sonic sensibility. If you're feeling the urge to chainsmoke clove cigs, brood and write bad poetry, I recommend channeling that energy into a celebration of Dark Entries Records' fifth anniversary.

Stream a mix Cheon brewed up for Dark Entries' fifth anniversary above.

DJ Josh Cheon founded the label in July 2009 with the intention of releasing out-of-print and unreleased underground '80s treasures. Named for the first 7-inch released by goth icon Bauhaus, Dark Entries' focus is curation, preserving sound quality and respecting its artists' aural aesthetic . And, yes, the label's output is strictly vinyl.

Preview Dark Entries' reissue of '80s Italo disco group Helen's early maxi singles as a four-song EP.

Dark Entries' lifeblood is the excavation, quality reproduction and distribution of largely unknown pleasures, but it also showcases contemporary acts whose sound harkens back to the heyday of minimal synth, coldwave, dark wave, electro, Italo disco and post-punk. Highlights of the Dark Entries catalog include work by Dark Day, Jeff and Jane Hudson, Starter, Linea Aspera, Kitchen & the Plastic Spoons, Algebra Suicide, Los Microwaves, Patrick Cowley, Victrola, Lè Travo, Crash Course in Science, Lassigue Bendthaus, Cute Heels and Helen.

Sample the debut LP by Cute Heels, the solo project of Belgian artist and Black Leather Records manager Victor Lenis.

"If only for the old times," reminisce and peer into the future by exposing your dark side to Dark Entries.

Stream "Nightcrawler" from Dark Entries' 2xLP Patrick Cowley retrospective, School Daze.

The Daily Word in hot schools in the Midwest, California's Rim Fire and lava lamps

Congress and the White House are still trying to decide whether or not to launch a limited military strike against Syria for using chemical weapons on civilians last month.

One-year-old Antiq Hennis was shot in the head and killed Sunday night in Brooklyn, NY. According to sources, the bullet was meant for this father, Anthony Hennis.

For those who are taking a break this Labor Day and reading Fifty Shades of Grey, the two main stars of the movie adaptation were announced.

California's Rim Fire is still raging, and many fear for the lives of the cattle that graze those lands.

It's getting hot in here, so can I please go home?

The search still continues for missing firefighter, Token Adams, who went missing on Friday afternoon when he failed to report to his crew at a “pre-planned meeting point” when responding to a fire in the Jemez.

Five people (including two children and a pregnant woman) died this Labor Day weekend in car crashes around the state.

Hey Londoners, go get you some lava lamps. They turn 50 tomorrow!

Did Someone Say Yearlong Party?

Tricklock Company’s got a lot to celebrate

Tricklock Company’s gearing up to launch their 20th season.

From Budapest to Seattle, Los Angeles to Belgrade, Edinburgh to Vancouver, Canada, Tricklock Company has planted their theatrical seed. More importantly, they’ve been a big player in the Albuquerque scene. As a local nonprofit, Tricklock has not only produced many original plays, talented actors, directors and musical scores, but was the first resident company in UNM’s Department of Theatre and Dance. After 19 years of hard work, the folks at Tricklock have decided it’s time for a well-earned bash. However, unlike some party invitations that say to leave the drama at home, this is one bash where drama is welcome.

Tricklock kicks off its 20th anniversary on Saturday, Aug. 31 with a free performance at the Tricklock Performance Factory (110 Gold SW) that borrows from the company’s past shows. The short performance is an amalgamation of old and new, incorporating performances from current and founding members. Featuring slide shows, memorabilia and intertextual references, Tricklock merrily puns on its own history. A new, original score also accompanies this eclectic blend of multimedia and theater. However, it doesn’t end there. Afterwards, join the crew for toasts and general merriment as they continue the celebration at neighboring ArtBar (119 Gold SW), a bar that donates their profits to the arts.

The bash marks the beginning of a yearlong celebration that debuts Tricklock’s brand-spankin’ new ticket subsidies program. With help from the McCune Charitable Foundation, they will reserve a percentage of seats at every performance for the coming year. These seats will be offered to local non-profit and low-income communities, available on a first-come, first-served basis. Organizations like YDI, Big Brothers Big Sisters and many others can benefit from the reduced ticket prices.

Tricklock’s anniversary will also be followed by a month of solo performances. September will open with Juli Hendren’s Rot (Sept. 5 through 8), followed by Elsa Menéndez’ Cloud Cover, or Conversations with Harry (Sept. 12 through 14) and close with Kevin R. Elder’s Knit (Sept. 19 through 21). Whether you can take advantage of discounted seats, are an aspiring thespian or just wanna party, Tricklock’s bash will be a welcome change to your Saturday night. If you’ve ever spent much time around theater people, you may know how these kinds of celebrations can be almost too good of a time. Happy anniversary, Tricklock!
