Music Interview

Rock Action

An interview with Mogwai frontman Stuart Braithwaite

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

Glasgow's Mogwai has been hypnotizing its audiences with elaborate, spaced-out, guitar-driven dirges since the mid-'90s. This week, on tour in support of its wryly titled 2011 Sub Pop release Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will, the cosmic post rock band pays New Mexico a visit. Over the phone, the band's thickly accented frontman Stuart Braithwaite and I discussed recording techniques, favorite concert locales and distortion pedals.

Shoulder Voices on Shoulder Voices

By Captain America

Shoulder Voices is just that. An angel on one side, a devil on the other, murmuring in your ear. And it’s difficult to tell which is offering temptation and which is advising caution.

Show and Tell

Show & Tell • Preschool For Adults • variety

By August March
Ah, the safety of childhood. For at least some of us the early years were not as fraught and demanding as the adult world. There was plenty of time to pretend, explore and grow. Contrariwise there's hardly enough time after the age of majority occurs to keep track of the adventures, much less make sure that they are wholesome, fun and embrace the sense of safety and freedom that some kids grow up on. Well, the news is that on Tuesday, Jan. 30, you can have a little bit of that childhood innocence back (but not all of it; nobody knows any 10-year-olds with tattoos and a proclivity for horrorcore and Jaegermeister, after all) by participating in Show and Tell: Preschool for Adults. It's be happening Downtown at one of our city's most comfortable and convenient nightspots, so feel free to dress down in your jammies, just like you do when headed for Walmart. JK. This awesome night of childishly fun yet seriously adult indulgences is free and begins at 8pm, Moonlight Lounge.
