Yacouba Sissoko
Descendant of the Mali Empire/Mandinka griot (a West African hereditary tribal genealogist, historian and storyteller class) and kora (a 21-string double-bridge-harp-lute) master Yacouba Sissoko is slated to do a four-day residency in the Land of Enchantment this week. In conjunction with performances and workshops at Albuquerque Academy, Sissoko will perform with his band SIYA twice while in New Mexico: an all-ages concert at Outpost Performance Space (210 Yale SE) on Thursday, March 13, and an all-ages concert in Santa Fe at GiG Performance Space (1808 Second Street, Suite H) on Friday, March 14. Both performances run from 7:30 to 9:30pm. Sissoko is an in-demand player on jazz, Latin and R&B stages and at traditional African ceremonies of our bright world, and his sojourn here in New Mexico offers a rare opportunity for deeper cross-cultural pollination of minds both young and older. Tickets are $15 for students and Outpost members and $20 general admission.

On Sunday evening, Downtown will buzz with sonic signatures of two of my favorite acts. For full disclosure’s sake, I engaged in e-matchmaking activity for LA post-punk/noise/synthwave band Bestial Mouths. Longtime readers might recall my description of the Niko Sonnberger-lensed video for Bestial Mouths’ “White Eyes” in November 2012 as "apocalyptic and occult visions ... of blood, oil, milk, poison and gauzy togetherness." Stir in The Man Who Fell to Earth-meets-metal-spiked alienation in Sonnberger’s A/V tribute to “Earth” and you’re up to speed. Raven Chacon, industrial-electro act Uranium Worker and high-order trickster Alchemical Burn accompany at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) on Sunday, March 16. The magick happens from 8 to 11pm, and six bucks gets you in.

The remedios and schematics-inspired signals of national noise accolade-gatherer TAHNZZ also electrify the night at Blackbird Buvette (509 Central NW) during solo showcase Me, Myself & I, along with Cthulha, Blissbot and Alan George Ledergerber. That 21-plus show runs from 7pm ’til 11:30pm, and there’s no cover. My kingdom for a clone!

Burger via SXSW

Burger Records won my heart with their cassette reissue of seminal death-rock band Christian Death’s Only Theatre of Pain. I’m not ultra-familiar with the acts on Burger’s SXSW roster, and that’s exactly as it should be. If you can handle the hyperreal hustle and bustle of the fest, it’s always a great way to discover new music and consequently, to be discovered. As a city, we benefit from pre- and post-SXSW tour traffic every year. With Meow Wolf’s Santa Fe booking on indefinite hiatus, chances are you’ll see more SXSW-adjacent artists in Burque proper during this and coming years; bookmark nmbands.com for deets on local “underground” gigs. On Monday, March 17, see Burger roster-mates Gap Dream, Cosmonauts, The Garden, The Abigails, Curtis Harding, Summer Twins, Mozes and the Firstborn and Vision at Sister (407 Central NW). Admission to this 21-plus mini-fest is $10, and it runs from 6pm 'til the wee hours and ecstatically represents Burger’s sun-kissed West Coast garage/pop/psych/soul/neo-punk/Satanic country prowess.

Atypical Gemini

Your psych/pop dreamboat is coming. If you’re a Castle Face/Goner/Drag City record addict, you know the flaxen-haired angel of whom I speak, Ty Segall. I listened to Gemini, the demo version of 2012’s Twins, the other night, and it’s a suitably woozy way to while away a half-hour of your life. And since Segall’s 2013 full-length Sleeper proved he was a keeper even sans protometal Fuzz, we’re optimistically hopeful he won’t deny us a bit of libidinous distortion. Whether signature psych-rock, reverb-licious new collab Chad and the Meatbodies or some combination thereof, it’s gonna be one hell of a show. Meatbodies and local garage-rock duo Elevator Boys open this aural pick-me-up at Launchpad (618 Central SW) on Wednesday, March 19. Hear the colors starting at 9:30pm. Tickets are $12, and it’s 21 plus. If you’re under 21 and/or feel like a road trip to Santa Fe on Tuesday, March 18, be advised Segall, Meatbodies and Alamo Sun play an all-ages gig at High Mayhem (2811 Siler Lane) at 7:30pm, and admission is only $10.
