Music to Your Ears
By Rachel Heisler
There was little doubt that Atomic Cantina (315 Gold, 242-2200) would survive its first year, but who knew the club would end up being as successful as it has? With great live entertainment, delicious food and an "everybody knows your name" atmosphere, Atomic has flourished and become the favorite hang-out of many locals. Celebrate the bar and restaurant's one-year anniversary on Wednesday, May 5, with a star-studded line-up of bands including Ready Samsara, Dead on Point 5, Rebilt, The Mindy Set, Romeo Goes to Hell, Oktober People, Scenester, The Dirty Novels, The Foxx and The Building Press. The fun starts at 8 p.m., so head down early and raise a glass to one of Albuquerque's most explosive bars. Show is free ...
Grandma's Music & Sound has been hosting live performances at its new location (9310 Coors NW), and are looking for local bands/solo performers to continue the tradition. Arists such as Michael Chapedelaine, Linda Cotton, Michael Anthony Trio and Frank Leto and Pandemonium have performed in the past. All interested parties are required to submit a CD and press kit. Grandma's is looking for experienced, first-rate performances in the genres of singer-songwriters, blues, bluegrass, DJs and more, but no loud punk, metal or heavy rock. Also, groups must be able to set up easily and quickly—there will be no extensive sound checks—so 20-piece bands need not apply. Sets will be around 45-minutes in length, and performers will be compensated. Call Larry Otis at 292-0341 weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
