DJ Tahnee spins an all-vinyl Roulette

Old-school DJ and noise musician Tahnee Udero played Song Roulette with us this week. She has a serious holiday music fetish—specifically Halloween and Christmas—that makes me dig her shows even more. Hear Udero spin Christmas music with DJ Mello on KUNM’s Afternoon Freeform on Monday, Dec. 24, from 1:30-4 p.m. Listen online at kunm.org or tune your dial to 89.9 FM. Night owls can also tune in to Udero’s Christmas edition of Music to Soothe the Savage Beast on Tuesday, Dec. 25, from 10 p.m.-1 a.m. Check out sound and video from her random tracks below.

Rock out with The Gracchi

If you’ve read about The Gracchi, it probably wasn’t in the Alibi. Former Editor in Chief Laura Marrich has played in the band since its inception, so the paper was ethically unable to cover the act, but now we can. Read all about it in The Gracchi Reunite at Garage & Wax. The group’s original lineup performs at Captain America’s fourth Garage and Wax Night. Check out video of Ashley Floyd proposing to Marrich below. Low Spirits • The Gracchi • Pan!c • Pumpin' for Jill • Riley Switch • Sat Dec 15 • 8 pm • $5 • 21+ • lowspiritslive.com

Flyer on the Wall: Beyer Redux

Outsider comic artist Mark Beyer originally created this art for a show at The Kosmos in August 2011. He was published in every issue of RAW Magazine during the publication’s 11-year run and contributed album and merch artwork for both John Zorn and Naked City. Gregg Araki loosely based his cult classic The Doom Generation on Beyer’s “Amy and Jordan” comic series. DJ Caterwaul recycles this art to hype a Friday night Low Life Happy Hour at Blackbird Buvette in this week’s Flyer on the Wall.

Finds of the week!

Music

Oldies but goodies

Great record finds in Nob Hill thrift stores

I recently acquired a turntable, amp and some speakers, and subsequently spent most of my weekend record shopping. Yeah, I know, vinyl collecting ranks up there with neck bandanas and a lack of general hygiene on the Hipster-o-meter, but I’m a self-admitted hoarder, and I just lost my iPod. Plus there’s that whole thing about purity of sound that I should be talking about, although I’m not sure I understand that part yet.

More than anything I just like the old-school album artwork and the fact that I can find a lot of stuff that I either haven’t heard or would have trouble finding in other audio formats. And it can be dirt cheap if you’ve got some free time to spare.

The Salvation Army on Silver off of Washington, for example, sells all their vinyl for fifty cents a pop (provided you buy 10 or more), and while you’ll have to sift through several dozen musty Christmas records before finding any gems, there are occasionally some diamonds in the rough. A trip there coupled with a few stops at the antique malls on Central just a few blocks away netted me some great material.

Are you familiar with Richard Pryor’s bit on John Wayne? One of the funniest things I’ve heard in ages. And if I looked anywhere half as cool as Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson on the covers of Jesus Was a Capricorn and Honeysuckle Rose, I’d die a happy man. Great albums, by the way.

So next time you have nothing to do, patronize your local junk shops. You might just find some roses amongst the mildew.
