Jason Daniello, of course

Music to Your Ears

Everything Good!

Jason Daniello's back in town for a Naomi-style reunion

Jason Daniello is always smiling. It’s no act—his smile is molded to that contagious positive attitude of his. And if you saw him perform when he lived here in Albuquerque, you probably caught it, too, along with a head full of songs.

Pride Radio Streams to Albuquerque—Without Local Content

HD station pushes national pop artists and tries to avoid stereotypes

Among the last 10 songs played one Friday afternoon on Pride Radio: "I Wanna Sex You Up," Color Me Badd; "Behind Hazel Eyes," Kelly Clarkson; "Summer Love," Justin Timberlake. What makes these tracks particularly gay or prideful? You'd have to do some traveling to find out. The programming for Pride Radio, broadcasting over HD to Albuquerque and Santa Fe, is selected in New York. Clear Channel's Jason Ortiz spoke about the newest addition to our HD roster, a channel geared toward gay and lesbian communities that's been streaming to us from Dallas/Fort Worth since April.

Fiesta!

P-R-I-D-E

The "P" stands for party

There are two things you're sure to find in abundance during ABQ Pride: queer people and dancing. And lots of queer people dancing. And lots of not-queer people dancing because the queer people are having so much fun dancing everyone has to join in. It's a fabulous cycle.

The Leftovers

Show Up!

The Leftovers

On the move

Barely hugging their 20s, The Leftovers make good music from the bygone pop-punk days even better. These three lads from Portland, Maine, got their start like many other bands—playing basement parties and trying to impress girls. But their loyalty to three-minute songs with catchy hooks has gotten them farther than any backyard makeout session.

And Now for Something Completely Different

I like this Elias-Axel Pettersson guy. I like that he's giving a classical piano recital at the El Rey, of all places. I like that his mom called me to tell me how awesome he is. I like that she probably made this poster, too. He's playing at 3 p.m. on Sunday, June 10. I imagine it's all-ages, but I'd like it even more if it wasn't. Just for the weirdness of it all. $15.

Sonic Reducer

Chris Cornell Carry On · Sage Francis Human The Death Dance · SoCalled GhettoBlaster

It's been a lingering moment in time since we've seen this god-given talent step under the lights solo. After AudioSlave’s recent fallout, what better a way to pack the old and bring in the new than to title this album Carry On. Catchy and cohesive, but at the same time sporadic, Chris Cornell breaks through as ringleader, composing all tracks except for the cover songs. “Billy Jean” strips down to a six-string vocal masterpiece surprisingly ringing just as full as the original hit. His vocal chords rattle studio glass and always leave a lasting impression. If you liked Euphoria Morning, you’ll love Carry On.

EVENT HORIZON (Sunday, Dec 18)

Tilting to the Left, Nudging to the Right

Pinball Tournament • arcade games • Food Drive

As my friends in Rudest Priest say, “I may not get the high score, but then again I might/ I just wanna play a little pinball tonight.” And this Sunday, Dec. 18, it doesn't really matter if you get the high score, everybody wins because at this Pinball Tournament—sponsored by and held at Sister—is also a food drive. All pinball machines on site will be set to free to play from 4pm onward, so get there early and warm up your fingers. There's a $10 buy-in for the tournament, and while non-perishable food donations aren't required, I'm just going to say this: Don't be an asshole. You're not going to eat that canned corn.
