Allison Miller

Percussive powerhouse

NYC-based drummer Allison Miller brings her band, BOOM TIC BOOM, to Outpost Performance Space (210 Yale SE) on Thursday, Oct. 3. Featuring Miller’s critically acclaimed drumming skill and improvisation, along with pianist Myra Melford, bassist Todd Sickafoose and guest musicians, the group purveys jazz that’s not so smooth that it renders its observers comatose but remains firmly outside the noise-jazz contingent. This all-ages concerts starts at 7:30pm sharp, and general admission is $20; students and Outpost members save five bucks.

Spanapalooza turns 12

Española’s annual skate fest, Spanapalooza, celebrates its 12th iteration on Saturday, Oct. 6, at Valdez Skate Park (Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park Road, Española). Even if oohing and aahing over ollies, kickflips and nosegrabs isn’t your thing, there’s plenty of art, music and activities suitable for just about anyone. Running from noon ’til 6pm, the free, all-ages fest features live music, a graffiti battle, informational booths and youth activities aplenty. Skull Control Records, Po.10.Cee, Friend2Foe, NOX2Tha, Stab Nancy, Willow, Kauses To Become and DJ Mile5 aurally rep the Land of Enchantment. This event is drug and alcohol-free, so enjoy the clarity.

... For the Whole World to See

Documentaries are usually the purview of Alibi Film Editor Devin D. O’Leary. But this week, two of the Guild’s most-buzzed about flicks are ultra-relevant to fans of cult bands Death and Big Star. A Band Called Death, a well-received 2012 sonic doc on ’70s garage/protopunk trio Death screens daily at 6:30pm at the Guild Cinema (3405 Central NE) from Sunday, Oct. 6 through Thursday, Oct. 10. For more info on Big Star: Nothing Can Hurt Me, see my review in this week’s film section.

Put Ka-Spel on view

One of the first great shows I saw in Burque was a semi-solo set by English singer/songwriter, The Legendary Pink Dots front man and consummate weirdo Edward Ka-Spel. While my memory of that Oct. 2003 show is understandably hazy, Ka-Spel’s futuristic hippie garb and his impromptu monologue on aliens and spaceships remains pleasantly lodged in my psyche. Make your own Ka-Spel-centric memories when The Legendary Pink Dots inhabit Launchpad (618 Central SW) on Monday, Oct. 7. The show also features Denver-based downtempo/psych foursome Orbit Service and local experimental/noise outfit Enemy Tone. The 21-plus gig revs up at 9:30pm, and admission is $15.
