Album Release

Pistol Star

SuperGiant’s oracular third creation

By Jessica Cassyle Carr
On Saturday, July 9, SuperGiant releases its third (mystical, heavy, bitchin’) album Pistol Star, recorded over the past two years with Sid Garcia at Sight 16 Studio. The Alibi was previously unable to cover SuperGiant happenings given the fact that half of the band was employed by the paper. That no longer being the case, below, in our first article on the band, vocalist Joel Rogers discusses equipment, symbolism and the mysteries of existence.

Scene and Heard

Rock Around the Clock

By Sam Adams
The Alibi Group Hug's Rockabilly Blowout went down Saturday, July 2, at the Launchpad. Acts included Jakob Insane, The Hi-Lo Tones, Cowboys and Indian and The .357s. Pompadours and faux orchids decked the night, with patrons trickling in from the Hot Rod Hop—a burlesque show and movie screening at the KiMo and the vintage car show a few blocks east on Central. By the time Cowboys and Indian hit the stage, the place was packed wall-to-wall. The crowd was swingin’ to rockabilly rhythms into the wee hours. Click below for some rockin’ photos.

California-based Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys are rock and roll with elements of rockabilly, boogie woogie, Western swing, traditional country and fine vocal arrangements. The Rockabilly Hall of Fame members are touring in support of their latest release, Turntable Matinee. They’ll make a long-awaited stop in New Mexico on Friday. The Alibi was able to catch up with Big Sandy via email.

Graphic Menageries

Bears and cheetahs and bears (with silly string or anemone tentacles coming out of their mouths, and it’s on, like, a notebook), oh my! Three truly excellent local bands— The Glass Menageries, Sad Baby Wolf and Phantom Lake—play at Low Spirits (2823 Second Street NW) on Friday, July 8, at 9 p.m. Admission to the 21-and-over show, celebrating the birthday of one Gena, is $5. DJ Dame Diana will preside over interim sonic action. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)

Face Your Fears

Technophobia • dark electronic • Austin Morrell • Mala in Se • Monogamy

By Adam Wood
The new wave of popular music has tended toward the electronic side of the musical spectrum, with EDM’s massive drops slowly dominating airwaves and the music festival circuit. Typically, it seems, this electronic movement has grown to be popularly identified with glow sticks, diffraction glasses and inexcusably appropriated Native American headdresses. This Friday, June 23, however, Technophobia and their brooding strain of dark electronic music will grace Burt’s TIki Lounge with an important reminder of the vast realm posed by electronic music for everyone, not just half naked-teenagers slathered in glitter…
