Music to Your Ears

Win SomethingThere are few awards in the lives of many musicians. Aspiring local ones can expect shiny prizes like: crappy pay, excess drama, late hours and the occasional heckler. Of course, pats on the back are not the reason most of us are in this game. We do it because ... wait, why are we doing this?

Joking aside, the New Mexico Music Commission's gearing up to offer trophies to winners of 35 categories for original productions recorded and mixed primarily within the state any time in 2006. You can't win if you don't enter, so make sure to send your entry in by Saturday, Feb. 3, along with a $20 check or money order. There are also several drop-off locations in Albuquerque and one in Santa Fe. Go to www.newmexicomusicawards.com for all the rules.

Maynard! Maynard! Maynard!The legions of Tool fans (who can ignore the fact that the lead singer's name has "nard" in it) should be stoked to mark March 23 on their calendars. Yes, Tool is coming, nards in tow. Buy tickets Saturday, Jan. 27, at 10 a.m. A big $49.50 will get you space on the floor and $39.50 will get you a spot in those crappy stadium seats I'm always in. And, as it always is at Tingley Coliseum, expect tons of mismanaged echo in your concert experience.

Bigger, Better BOBSpeaking of the far and few between moments of glory for local musicians, keep your eyes peeled in the coming weeks for a badass Best of Burque ballot (say that 10 times fast). No longer will there be one prize for Best Band. Instead, a much-needed expansion will add categories for Best Polka Band That Wears Bolo Ties, Band Most Able to Clear a Room in 20 Seconds or Less, Fattest Horn Section in Town and, of course, Most Likely to Wear a Bikini in Spite of Chest Hair.

Just kidding. BOB will loosen his belt and give music its own section, but the categories are much nicer. Watch for the new ballot as early as next week.
