Stark Raving Mod: Mod night at Blackbird

By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Sat Aug 3 2013 12:00 PM ]

If you like to dabble in the mod lifestyle, now's the perfect time to dust off your black-and-white-striped boatneck T-shirt, Chelsea boots, French New Wave coiffure skills, customized scooter and, yes, your records. DJs Bea, Cassyle, Zac Webb and Ben Adams spin hot wax selections from genres like garage, glam, rocksteady, power pop, soul and "trashy trash" at Mod Night at Blackbird Buvette (509 Central NW) tonight. Starting at 10 p.m., rock your best gamine heroine or Jean-Paul Belmondo impersonation at this 21-and-over dance party. There's no cover, but false eyelashes aren't cheap.

Get Your Schwervon: Hoverboard • Schwervon! • The Blackout Disciples • Get Action

By Captain America [ Wed May 15 2013 11:45 AM ]

Blackbird Buvette serves up an inaugural springtime rock and roll bash on its tiny back porch. It’s pretty cramped, but it’s as close to a DIY basement show as you can get … while having drinks served. This show is a who’s-who of the best garage rockers still standing (no overdoses or wheelchairs). Drum legend Joe Bolt debuts The Blackout Disciples' dark and dirty rock sans evil posturing. Other Dirty Novels alumsDandee Fleming and Brian Keithand Demarcus Sumter (St. Petersburg), Billy Miles Brooke (Pan!c) and Ben Woods (Porter Draw) make up the group. Punk and roll outfit Get Action (formerly Riley Switch) features bad boy Bill Bunting (Ten Seconds to Liftoff), Scott Brown (Song Thing) and Ashley Floyd and Jeff Jones (both ex-Gracchi). Newcomers Hoverbourd tag themselves as surf-indie-dance-rock, and that works for me, especially with a horn thrown into the mix. Despite bountiful local talent, I’m most excited about Schwervon! from Shawnee, Kan., by way of New York City. Now in their 13th year, guitarist Major Matt Mason and drummer Nan Turner’s music ranges from sweet jangle-pop to ear-shattering racket. Keep a few bucks stashed in your wallet to score Schwervon! merch, including the brilliant, new Courage and '09’s sweet and lilting Low Blow.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #288: A woman takes my tacos away.

By Brutus De Cervantes [ Tue Mar 26 2013 4:38 PM ]

G and I are in Taos at dusk. We watch a jeep Wagoneer perform a jump from a dirt road off a hill and over some water. We then go to a fancy Mexican buffet. There are circular bas-relief carvings in the patio floor and walls. I get a plate of tacos. G gets green chili enchiladas that I had not noticed. Our waitress, a gray-haired woman, takes my full plate from me, ostensibly to bring me some enchiladas instead. She does not return. I try to hunt her down. I find some of the other wait staff and describe her to them. They point and I find her hiding behind a door. She gives an unintelligible excuse. I go up to the pretty cashier, who informs me that they are now closed. I go upstairs onto the roof. The food is now gone - only empty tables and steam trays remain.
