Music to Your Ears

A Film About the Pixies--The Guild Cinema is opening up its theater this week to a documentary called loudQUIETloud. In it, we get an all-access pass to the Pixies’ 2004 reunion tour through Canada, Europe and the United States. Most importantly, we get a look at what we've long suspected the Pixies are really like: A dysfunctional family of carnies. Step right up!

Ovary Action

"Queer Performativity" takes on a whole new meaning as singing acrobats, emcees, burlesque performers and all-around badass girls present the Femme-O-Lition Derby, a queer cabaret with local performers. See this week's "Lucky 7" for locations, show times and prices. (LM)

Irving
Gail Salmo

Show Up!

Irving

with +/-

I can’t help but feel bad for Irving. For every new sound or sweater-clad opus au courant, there are a thousand great precursory bands commanding our acknowledgement as the groundbreaking antecedents. Nothing is ever really new. Being an indie band ain’t what it used to be.

Bruce Cockburn

Show Off!

Bruce Cockburn

You’ve come a long way, baby

Canadian singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn has always had a penchant for the topical. The “big” issues--war, God, life and death--take center stage in his work, as much now as ever in his 30-odd-year career.

Spotlight

Dervish

Irish sextet brings a little piece of Sligo to everyone

Nicknames have a way of sticking. Barbra Streisand is known to her devoted fans a Babs. Dwayne Johnson kicks butt on the movie screen and in the WWE ring as The Rock. President Bush lovingly embraces his possibly self-declared nickname, Dubya.

Sonic Reducer

Christian McBride, Javon Jackson, Jimmy Cobb, Cedar Walton New York Time · Kenny Garrett Beyond the Wall · Branford Marsalis Quartet Braggtown

Even as you’re listening to track 1 for the first time, you’re looking forward to hearing this hybrid SACD/CD again. As satisfying as it is accessible, this collection of originals and two standards brings together four like-minded virtuosos whose common trademark is unforced elegance and eloquent understatement. Everything flows through the session’s single microphone (no overdubs, no multitracking) as easily as springwater flows downhill. The easygoing cymbal-driven swing of drummer Cobb, the rhythmic punch of bassist McBride, the spidery harmonies of pianist Walton and the plangent tone of saxophonist Jackson come together in one of the year’s best recordings.

Blink 182

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Sep 25)

Blink and You'll Miss It

Blink-182 • pop punk • A Day to Remember • hardcore • All Time Low • rock, emo

Blink-182 plays a type of popular music called pop-punk. And although British rock critic Steven Wells of NME dismissed them at the beginning of the century as “indistinguishable from the increasingly tedious 'teenage dirtbag' genre they helped spawn,” the band has had some notable influence…

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Sep 30)

'A Lot About Living'

Alan Jackson • country

As Ludwig von Beethoven once said, “Music is the mediator between the spiritual and the sensual life.” Those words still carry weight, even now: a thousand years later. And you'll find no better example than the incomparable Alan Jackson, whose voice and countenance rival those of the gods, as though he were hewn from the heart of the sun itself. His honky tonk tunes—swords of righteous terror and beauty which melt the the eardrums of devotees, lost in reverie as they bathe in the glorious golden ambiance of his mustache. He'll be playing live at the Sandia Resort & Casino on Friday, Sept. 30. Take a gander.

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Sep 30)

Desert Sound

Chrome Sparks • electronic, indie pop

So Chrome Sparks apparently has a few hours open in his schedule to visit ABQ—somewhere in between juggling his gajillion other projects and fulfilling his role as busiest spacey electro-pop composer on the planet. New Mexico seems like the perfect place for those wide-open, expansive tunes of his. Maybe someone can talk him into posting up in the middle of the desert next time. Sound carries further at night and can have a a really spooky resonance. Just saying. This Friday, Sept. 30, he'll be wowwing the pants off of us at Sister Bar (which is indoors, unfortunately) starting at 9pm. Wear your clean undies.

EVENT HORIZON (Monday, Oct 3)

Two i's Are Better Than One

Miike Snow • indie, electro-pop

"I change shapes just to hide in this place, but I'm sure not going to hide from this concert." Ladies and gents, I am happy to report that Miike Snow, the Swedish electro-pop band of your dreams, will be performing at our very own Historic El Rey Theater. Imagine Alt-J and Dan Black created a musically inclined love child. The result would be something like Miike Snow. If that's too foreign an analogy, you'll just have to listen for yourself at 7pm on Monday, Oct. 3. Tickets are just $25-$40 but sorry kids, only ages 21+ for this one.

EVENT HORIZON (Wednesday, Oct 5)

Tome-ate-o, Tom-ato

Andrew Jackson Jihad • folk-punk • Diners • surf, indie rock • Kepi Ghoulie • punk folk

Once upon a time, back in 2004, in the distant land of Arizona, there was born a folk-punk band by the name of Andrew Jackson Jihad. It was a mouthful, so they decided to go by the acronym AJJ. Then they decided to formally change their name to that. Soon they'll be at the Launchpad. People in this town like to shit on the folk-punkers, but fuck those jerks. I already bought a ticket to this Launchpad show and I bet I'll be buying band merch, too, at this kick-ass show starting at 8pm on Oct. 5.
