’50s rocanrol gone Wild

Based in El Lay, indie rock label Wild Records massages the still-beating heart of ’50s-inspired rock and roll. Helmed by Irishman Reb Kennedy, the label focuses on young Hispanic musicians who pay tribute to the good old days while fearlessly forging the future of rocanrol. Albuquerque Film & Media Experience presents an interactive double-header on Friday, June 6; a screening of Wild Records documentary Los Wild Ones happens at KiMo Theatre (423 Central NW) at 7pm. After the film, SoCal quartets/rostermates The Rhythm Shakers and Luis and the Wildfires play Imbibe (3101 Central NE). Tickets for the film are only $5, but catch rock on the silver screen and the stage for $20. Learn more at bit.ly/loswildabq.

Communicant observation

Here in the Southwest, Americana encompasses New Mexican, Middle Eastern and other traditions. Celebrating its 16th iteration, the Albuquerque Folk Festival exists to promote the exchange of these ideas, skills and arts. The event kicks off on Saturday, June 7, and wraps up at 2pm on Sunday, June 8. Beginner’s workshops range from mountain dulcimer to ukulele, and intermediate harmony and singing lessons, jam sessions and fiddle courses round out the learnin’. A slew of talented performers—among them Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Birds of Chicago and local faves like Wildewood, Cactus Tractor and The Porter Draw—entertain and educate fans of folk music this weekend at Anderson Abruzzo International Balloon Museum (9201 Balloon Museum NE). Visit abqfolkfest.org for schedule and ticket info.

Psych-rock grotesquerie

Dax Riggs first made a name for himself fronting sludge-metal band Acid Bath. From his teenage thrash years through the swamp-balladry/blues-metal of Agents of Oblivion into the present, Riggs’ preferred genres expand and evolve. The one thing that remains the same is Riggs himself, who tempers a sharp intellect with real chops, dark imagination and morbid humor. Riggs rocks Sister (407 Central NW) on Sunday, June 8, after the opener, a collaboration between local heavies Steve Hammond, Jessica Billey and Bud Melvin. Notably of Leeches of Lore, Tenderizor and Phantom Lake, this threesome is worthy of your time and $10. Add in Riggs’ performance, and I can’t see why you’d miss this. The 21-plus show starts at 8pm.

Haunted-house dérive

If you’re feelin’ Dada, this show is likely recherché enough for even you. Denverite experimental industrial duo Echo Beds draws inspiration from a variety of sources. Surrealist, Situationist and DIY ethos coil ’round cassette hiss and loop. The self-described “overdriventape-hissnoisewall-landscape” act owes as much to primal scream therapy as it does to its industrial forefathers. Touring with fellow Mile-High City act Tripp Nasty—whose Twitter bio is “If Garrison Keillor had a younger, prettier, cross-dressing brother!”—Echo Beds performs at Spirit Abuse (1103 Fourth Street NW) along with Navajo Nation dance-punk outfit DISCOTAYS and noisy locals Pepper Griswald on Wednesday, June 11. This esoteric gig cranks up at 9pm, and admission will run you $5.
