Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

The Kids are All Right--An article in last week's Journal confirmed that the city is purchasing the Ice House building for use as an all-ages, teen-run music center, similar to Warehouse 21 in Santa Fe. The 30,000-square-foot space sits at 506 First Street NW. It's within spitting distance of the Cell Theatre, Wool Warehouse and MLK/Roma bridge, making it an ideal hub for all-ages music events in the Downtown area.

Tony Gilkyson

Show Up!

Tony Gilkyson

with The Shine Cherries and The Inner Parlor

By Captain America

It's no easy task to follow Billy Zoom (original guitarist for the premier Los Angeles punk band X), but that’s just what Tony Gilkyson did from 1987 to 1996. His outstanding work was always on the twangier numbers (read: the John Doe material) so it’s no surprise that his solo work is deep country, whether a gentle prairie breeze or barreling down a prairie highway.

Sleep Till North

Musical insanity with method to its madness

By Simon McCormack

It’s not that prog-rock outfit Sleep Till North doesn’t have a plan. It’s that deviating from that plan is a necessity for each of the band’s four members.

Sonic Reducer

Oscar Castro-Neves All One · Gonzalo Rubalcaba Solo · Ben Allison Cowboy Justice

By Mel Minter

All One, the latest from Brazilian guitarist/arranger/composer Oscar Castro-Neves, includes a “grooming” credit, and OCN sure looks good. Nor is there a hair out of place in the 14 tracks that take us on a musical tour of OCN’s diverse influences—from the predictable Jobim to Chopin and Monk. His bossa-inflected guitar conjures a good-natured vibe and adds a pop sheen over a tight, jazzy ensemble, with stellar performances from violinist Charlie Bisharat and guest vocalist Luciana Souza. Overall, however, the music feels overcareful and lightweight, though the Chopin prelude and Jobim’s “Double Rainbow” are exceptionally rendered.

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Feb 14)

A Romantic Recital

Boyz II Men • R&B

By August March
On Sunday, Feb. 14, the Legends Theater at Route 66 Casino presents a concert by romantic balladeers and masters of a capella ruminations on love and life, Boyz II Men. An R&B group (now a trio, formerly and originally a quartet) with an affinity for soulful musical wanderings through the heart of human affection, Boyz II Men first made the scene in the 1990s with radio-friendly hits like “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love to You” and “One Sweet Day,” an epic tune to forever love they recorded with super-chanteuse Mariah Carey. In the years since they rose to the top of the pops, one member, Michael McCary departed the ensemble, leaving an essential trio comprised of tenors Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris as well as baritone Nathan Morris. Together, these three still bring the flavor of love to life as they tour around a gratefully enchanted planet of men and women. Tickets for this all-ages performance range in price from $35-$70 while romance fills the air beginning at 8pm.
