Music to Your Ears

Mighty Tiger

SXSW season has arrived, and you know what that means: During the next couple of weeks a disproportionate number of touring bands will be making pit stops in Albuquerque on their way to and from Austin. Among the packs of troubadours is a little piece of old Albuquerque. Two thirds of Mighty Tiger, a dreamy rock band from Seattle, is comprised of one half of the late Oh, Ranger!—Boyd Reno and Luke Heath. Imbued with the Reno-and-Heath touch—sad guitar and cheeky lyrics placed in a squirming pop context—Mighty Tiger is ever-so-slightly reminicent of their earlier local projects, but with more mature, higher fidelity results. See Mighty Tiger perform live on Tuesday, March 16, at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) with fellow Seattleite Grand Hallway, along with Albuquerque's Bellemah and The Giranimals. The show begins at 9 p.m. and $5 gets you in.

March Metal Meltdown

If you like metal—and it seems that the majority of New Mexicans do—this weekend El Rey is hosting the show of your dreams. And by dreams, I mean corpse-filled nightmares! On Saturday, March 13, 620 Central SW will be covered by the black shroud that is the music of Howitzer, Bear: The Nightmare, Caustic Lye, BlindDryve, Anesthesia and When Darkness Falls. Tickets to this all-ages event are $7 in advance (through Music Go Round or Stylistic Ink) or $10 at the door. Bands start shredding at 7 p.m.

Mexican St. Patrick’s Day

Albuquerque lacks the wherewithal of a collective Irish-American community, a cultural influence that might turn St. Patrick's Day into something more than a green-polo-shirt-bedecked festival of Jägerbombs. So, because ¡Ask a Mexican! columnist Gustavo Arellano was going to be in town, we here at the Alibi decided this year St. Patrick's should be a Mexican holiday. On Wednesday, March 17, enjoy music, food and discussion of a Mexican persuasion at Blackbird Buvette (509 Central NW) from 6 to 9:30 p.m. Read more about this free event, Mexicans and New Mexicans in this week's feature article.
