Did I hear you ask, “When will someone make a compilation of goth style?” Well...

Whenever I tell people they should see a therapist (because I tell everyone that) I usually receive a scoff as a response, and you know what, that's totally reasonable because most people can't afford it. But why?

Cowboys and Indian rock away genre stereotypes
By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Sat Oct 13 2012 2:00 PM ]
It’s refreshing to have your stereotypical notions obliterated by other humans. That’s what happened to me when I interviewed Cowboys and Indian guitarist Gerome Fragua and upright bassist Matthew Ezzard. Expecting fashion-rockabilly cats, I was pleasantly surprised to spend some time gabbing with two intelligent, open-minded, funny and musically diverse dudes who care more about rehearsing than futzing around with Dapper Dan’s pomade.
In the article, Playing Cowboys and Indian, I noted that drummer Jeff Cooper couldn’t make the interview because he was on the road as a short-haul truck driver, but I neglected to explain the other members’ day jobs. Fragua serves as the music director for Paragon Church, a Southern Baptist church in Rio Rancho. The band has even played there. Ezzard is currently immersed in his final semester of fire science studies at CNM and hopes to become a structural firefighter.

A coming-of-age story about pants
By Marisa Demarco [ Fri Mar 23 2012 12:40 PM ]
The fashion bloggers at BurqueStyle have embarked upon an age-old endeavor.
You see, there comes a time in every young jerk’s life, when one might want to get the kind of job where clothes matter a little.
I’m not talking about life at the Alibi. Most days, we’re just lucky we’re all wearing pants. (To be fair, some staffers dress very nicely here. I’m not one of them.) However, if I were a lawyer defending you in a triple-homicide case, maybe you’d want me to class it up a little. Like with a hat or something.
Which brings us to Jersey punk transplant J. He once drove a car through a Home Depot. He hangs around Dumpsters, if the photos on the blog are any indication. Soon, he will be a young professional. So BurqueStyle and local clothing shop Toad Road hooked him up with some ideas.
I think it’s actually kinda hard to dress professionally but still feel like yourself if you’re coming from an counterculture background. They did nice work. And J still got a chance to point out that if you’re wearing pants that cost $180, it totally blows if you screw them up somehow. But they fit nice, he says, and feel better than the mass-produced, cookie-cutter $15 jeans dangling from plastic hangers at Walmart.
And all the better if you can support local business or avoid child-labor-made goods in the process.
BurqueStyle’s got an event happening this weekend, too. Pop Up ABQ is Saturday, 7 p.m., at the Corrales Bistro Brewery. Details here.
