LOL version dos

Leeches of Lorchestra (a nine-piece version of twang-and-trash trio Leeches of Lore) unleashed its sonic fury on Downtown last year at a bittersweet farewell party for principal songwriter, guitarist and vocalist Steve Hammond. I interviewed Hammond prior to that gig, and he wasn’t sure how long he and his wife would be calling Mexico home. One year later Leeches of Lore reunites at the same venue they last rocked, Sister (407 Central NW). Welcome Hammond back to Burque on Saturday, Aug. 24. The 21-and-over LOL-tastic concert revs up at 10pm, and tickets are $5. Fando and Phantom Lake open.

Piano bar swank

Whether you’ve checked out Sunday Chatter (a weekly classical music event featuring a poet or author) or not, consider classing up your weekend plans with a toney evening of live music at Chatter’s August Cabaret at Hotel Andaluz (125 Second Street NW). Hosted in the hotel’s Casablanca Room—think organic chic meets haute azure edginess—this month’s cabaret features renowned pianist James D’León performing Felix Mendelssohn's "Variations Sérieuses Opus 54," John Corigliano's "Etude Fantasy," Federico Mompou’s "Pájaro Triste," Isaac Albéniz' "El Corpus Christi in Sevilla” and Franz Liszt's "Hungarian Rhapsody No 2." This concert twinkles to life on Sunday, Aug. 25 at 5pm, and tickets are $20.

Punk rock girl

Filmmaker Amy Oden brings From the Back of the Room, her acclaimed documentary on women in hardcore/punk, to The Tannex (1417 Fourth Street SW) on Sunday, Aug. 25. Featuring interviews with luminaries like Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre), Slade Bellum (Tribe 8), Allison Wolfe (Bratmobile) and many others, the film screening and Q&A with Oden is enticing enough; but the event also features a performance by Tannex house band Dallas and serves as a benefit for the third annual ABQ Zine Fest. A suggested donation of $5 to $10 helps ensure that the fest remains accessible to all. Starting at 8pm, come for the grrrls, and stay for the love of self-published micro-lit.
