Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

PMS >> RIP

It's hard to describe what Potty Mouth Sherry's are outside the obvious "all-girl" (there are four of them, to be precise), but I'll try with some stream of consciousness—Punk. Folk. Pirate. Circus. Noise. Art-house. Playground. Butch. Femme. Bad-good. Good-bad. Sinbad. Ukulele-core.

Music Interview

Touring for their fourth full-length album, New Wave, these guys are rocking the boat with punk that's rich, raw and honest. The Alibi caught up with the band’s lead singer/songwriter/guitarist, Tom Gabel, to discuss the new album, being on the road and everything in between.

Sonic Reducer

Joey Calderazzo Amanecer · PlayRadioPlay! The Frequency E.P. · Chaka Khan Funk This

Bypassing the omphaloskepsis that plagued his 2004 solo recording, Haiku, the longtime Branford Marsalis Quartet pianist ventures over a wide range of sonorities and historical styles on Amanecer, in solo, duo and trio formats. On Michael Brecker’s “Sea Glass,” he achieves a deft balance between motion and stillness. His own “Toonay” features rhythmic rubs of right hand against left, and a Glenn Gould–like touch. His highly personal rendition of “Waltz for Debby” lays a lovely veil over Bill Evans’ tune. Four tracks add Claudia Acuña (vocal) and Romero Lubambo (guitar), with particular success on the Calderazzo/Acuña composition “So Many Moons.” [MM]

Mishka Shubaly vs. the road

By Amy Dalness

The road is a dangerous mistress. One moment she's gilding her path, offering kisses laden with joy and good fortune. The next, she's slashed your tires, stolen the radio and called all your exs to tell them you've got the clap.

Horton Hears a Fishbone While Strung Out

Reverend Horton Heat • rockabilly • Fishbone • Strung Out

By August March
Would you like to attend a “Psycho Strung Out Fish Fry?” Well, gentle readers, if such esoteric activities appeal to you, then please consider attending an awesome event with that very name at Burque's Sunshine Theater on Thursday, Sept. 21. In case you wanna know, the main participants in this far-out festival include legendary “county-fed punkabilly” roustabouts the Reverend Horton Heat, led by the charismatic and cray Jim Heath, the fellow credited with creating and cultivating the contemporary rockabilly sound on albums like Liquor in the Front and We Three Kings. Soulful ska scenesters Fishbone—whose 1994 epic effort Give a Monkey a Brain and He'll Swear He's the Center of the Universe is still on rotation at mi chante—plus OG Cali punk rockers Strung Out provide sonic support for this mad 13+ pre-fall fish party which begins at 7:30pm and costs but 22 clams.

Zomboy to the Rescue!

Zomboy • electronic • Trampa • Xilent

By August March
The Sunshine Theater continues to bring Burque the best in post-contemporary jams when they welcome electro wizards Zomboy, Trampa and Xilent to town on Friday, Sept. 22. Zomboy, you may recall (if you're young enough to do just that) is a British dubstep dude whose 2011 debut set the stage for an excellent entrada into electronica that includes bouncy and beatific recordings like 2014's The Outbreak. Supporting the bill are Trampa, another Brit beat master, known for his anomalously aggressive take on the same genre and Xilent, a Polish fellow who works magic with dubstep, electro-house and drum and bass. So, go on kids, grab your Vicks Vaporub, plastic pacifier and rainbow colored toe-socks and head downtown for a 7:30pm dance party that coincidentally signals the beginning of fall. For only $20-$25 and an ID that says you're 16+, you know you wanna.

The Cat's in the Cradle

Miss May I • Ice Nine Kills • metal • Capsize • alternative, melodic hardcore • Lorna Shore • emocore • Westwind

By August March
If you still haven't had your fill of melodic hardcore, emocore and/or emo with no chaser—and lord knows who hasn't; I still dream of Hawthorne Heights every night before jumping up from my La-Z-Boy recliner and toddling off to bed—then do yourself a solid and visit Albuquerque's home for rock, Launchpad, on Monday, Sept. 25. That's when the Chaos Rising tour hits Dirt City. Featured performers include Miss May I, Ice Nine Kills, Capsize, Lorna Shore and Westwind. I'm goddamn sure this show will totally fucking rock, but I tell you what: check it out and afterwards send me a text with some cool stickers or GIFs attached to let me know for sure. This 13+ emo extravaganza costs the average teenager $15 and it all begins at 8pm.
