Music to Your Ears: Tenderizor’s destroyed tones
Flyer on the Wall: The fifth annual Moustachio Bashio
Good news party people, electro pop trio MEN is passing through Albuquerque again—this time with more “bomp,” stage antics and a new album under its belt.
Made of a cast of characters that includes Le Tigre members JD Samson and Johanna Fateman, Men is a sexed-up, gender-bending Brooklyn art/performance collective that specializes in disco trash and crazily costumed stage shows. See the eccentric, electronic action live at the Launchpad tonight. The 21-and-over show is $8 in advance, $10 at the door. Locals Ya Ya Boom and Shoulder Voices get the party started.
My men’s health care journey began with a heartwarming moment of inappropriate groping. During nursing school, a heavily medicated gentleman reached out from his hospital bed and cupped my butt cheek with his trembling hand, muttering “That’s nice” before passing out. He had no recollection of the event after he woke up and was just as courteous as can be for the remainder of his hospitalization.
Pinup girls. Albuquerque’s got more than a few. Which always sparks the question: What about pinup dudes?
What about ‘em? Enjoy photographer Chad States’ series “Men at Their Most Masculine.” Alert: Wang ensues. I don’t know if these guys are pinups, exactly, but it’s akin to what I imagine a “Brawn of the 505” calendar would look like.
