Ultan and Wolf: Charmed

CD Release

Charmed Twice Over

Bitter Suite 7 haunts the earways

By

On its second CD, the “twisted folk” duo Charmed—Alicia Ultan and Bambi Wolf—once again take on the darkness and find the light. In 12 original, emotionally powerful songs, Bitter Suite 7 explores love, loss, betrayal, memory’s hauntings, the search for a center, and the promise and sometimes redemptive certainty of love.

Sonic Reducer

Kate Mann Things Look Different When the Sun Goes Down · Evidence The Layover EP · The Pica Beats Beating Back the Claws of the Cold

It’s been a while since Portland-based desert gypsy rocker Kate Mann called New Mexico home, but the Land of Enchantment still swims in her blood. Her latest release remains intimate even as it fills to the brim with acoustic and electric guitar, fiddle, cello, accordion, piano, saw and harmonica. Mann’s sleepy-eyed acoustic ballads sit at one end of the bar, while cello-heavy movers and shakers beg for another shot at the other. Things Look Different is an album that gets its point across with forceful grace. (SM)

But I Like It

Prism Bitch • punk • Shitty and the Terribles • garage • Gerunding

By August March
Let's be clear: the premier psych-y, slithery rocanrol event of February takes place at (where else) the Launchpad on Friday, Feb. 23. That's when local sultry sound stars and de facto leaders of the soulful garage rock unit of this city's scene, Prism Bitch—that would be Lauren Poole, Lilah Rose, Chris Walsh, Teresa Cruces and Nelson Crane—take the stage to blind you with sonic and spectral divination from out the mouths of prison-bound purveyors of a sort of electric blues that takes plenty of pop turns as it smolders and then catches fire all hot and shit. Shitty and the Terribles, say they're punk rock, but their vibe feels more no-wave to me, complete with Nueva York style aggression and power chords. Whatever, they totally rock; psych-pop pronunciators Gerunding (everything they sing ends in -ing, one hopes)—a duo that features Mag Kim and Racheaella Ceniceros—open up this super psychedelic can of worms that are actually magic mushrooms that are actually … oh my gawd, you better go and see for yourself. 9pm • $7 • 21+.

Work up your courage or down a few beers this Saturday, Feb. 24 at Duel Brewing and take the stage for the The Open Bra, a bi-monthly burlesque improv competition. Performers are assigned a song at the beginning of the evening, and then hit the stage to enchant the audience and judges Miss Behavin, Mayo Lua de Frenchie and Annie O'Roar. And hey, if you're too nervous to take a turn dancing, you still get to weigh in on runner-up and winner slots as a member of the kowtowing crowd. This free, 21+ doors at 8pm and the event begins at 9pm. Plan on staying late for a dance party afterwards.

Popular

Red Light Cameras • indie rock • Jared and the Mill • The Timewreckers • cosmic country

By August March
   The favorite, most popular pop band in Dirt City is named after a thing that no longer exists here. No, dudes, it's not the dinosaurs or the inherently racist educational institutions of el duque that one thinks of in such situations; rather it's the Red Light Cameras. ¿Los Recuerdas? Consequently, besides a lot of happy motorists, there's the story of a band here too. That resulting rocanrol ensemble, The Red Light Cameras, continue to draw huge audiences all over the state and now you can count yourself among the lucky humans who've seen them perform when they appear at Sister on Wednesday, March 7 at 8pm. Phoenix indie unit Jared & The Mill are also on the bill. For realz rockers—and perhaps heirs to RLC's guilded throne—The Timewreckers, open. Showtime is 8pm with a $5 cover and 21+.
