Music to Your Ears
Sneak Preview the City's New Home for All-ages Music—MAP, a collective of under-21 musicians and their parents, has swapped their mommy-related moniker (Musicians And Parents) in favor of more neutral Media Arts Promotion. Not that having your folks take an interest in your musical ambitions is a bad thing. The group's monthly “MAP21” zine-assembly party hits the Blue Dragon on Sunday, Dec. 17, at 1 p.m., with an acoustic performance by teen act Deadright.
They'll leave the coffeehouse at 3 p.m. and caravan over to tour the unfinished all-ages music space at 506 First Street NW, formerly The Ice House. (The City of Albuquerque purchased the 30,000-square-foot space this summer.) The music center, it is said, will be teen-run and modeled off Santa Fe's successful Warehouse 21.
