Mike Smith is a font of hyper-local writ. His long-running My Strange New Mexico column and his current project, New Mexico News, aim to shed some light on the wonderfully weird Land of Enchantment. Smith will contribute a monthly local music column to the Alibi in 2013. Read his first, belated Burque music round-up: This Month in Music. Listen to tracks from featured artists below.
We caught up with Jenny Invert’s Sam Miller this week in To Burque, With Love. The once-Burqueño band performs in its former stomping ground this weekend. Notorious lurker and original Invert member David “Poncho” Schripsema fills in for his Pacific Northwest counterpart, Eva Ave., at the gig. Listen to music from Jenny Invert and other performing acts below. Launchpad • Jenny Invert • Mr. Gnome • the Cherry Tempo • Bigawatt • Sat Nov 10 • 9:30 pm • $6 • 21+
