Is That Surf Music?

The fearless fun of Benjamin Herman’s Dutch jazz

By Mel Minter

Don’t let the suit and tie fool you. Alto saxophonist Benjamin Herman, voted the Best Dressed Dutchman of 2008 by Esquire magazine, may favor the buttoned-up look of fashionably tailored threads, but he’s one of the most unbuttoned players on the jazz scene today. Herman seems ready to play anything, anytime—as long as everyone involved is having a good time and ready to dance.

Show Up!

Le Serpent Rouge Slithers Onto Stage

By Summer Olsson

“Vaudeville” traditionally refers to mixed entertainment on the same bill, and Le Serpent Rouge is just that. A trio of belly dancers, The Indigo, weaves its act between two live musical groups, each old-timey in its own way—the Crow Quill Night Owls and the Gallus Brothers. The show is touted as “vintage cabaret with ragged edges,” implying a touch of disorder or a bit of bawdiness. Or both.

The Debutante Hour The Birth and Death of Meaning · Typhoon Hunger and Thirst · The Silent Comedy Common Faults

By Summer Olsson

Three fine ladies draped in vintage glam sing vaudevillian songs to accordion and tuba. A smoky-voiced vixen croons torch songs about the devil over moody piano. Susan Hwang, Mia Pixley and Maria Sonevytsky are the Debutante Hour—and it’s quite a smart and sexy 60 minutes. With great voices and bluesy harmonies, the band questions world views, religion and self-identity. “Miracle Birth”—which includes hilarious synopses of the Immaculate Conception and Athena bursting from Zeus’ head, among others—is exemplary of The Debutante Hour’s aplomb. It manages to raise intelligent issues and treat them cheekily, all in the guise of sultry cabaret tunes.

Horton Hears a Fishbone While Strung Out

Reverend Horton Heat • rockabilly • Fishbone • Strung Out

By August March

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.
