The Slow Poisoner

The archetypal journey of a one-man band

By Summer Olsson
After realizing that working in a band was not conducive to his lifestyle, Andrew Goldfarb crossed the threshold into performing solo, fingering a guitar with his hands and beating drums with his feet. He underwent a metamorphosis, inventing a new personality—a traveling snake oil pusher, or tent-city preacher, or possibly a whacked-out Vodou mambo. One thing’s sure: The essence of all of these characters is present in his music.

Jennifer Robin

This bird can sing

By Mel Minter

Growing up on Lower Ranchitos Road in Taos, Jennifer Robin had a poster of Paul McCartney hanging in her bedroom closet. This month, with the release of her new recording, The Bird and the Beatles, the jazzy, folky singer/songwriter is bringing her Beatles love affair out of the closet and onto center stage.

Song Roulette

Random tracks from Colourmusic’s Colin Fleishacker

By Jessica Cassyle Carr

Colourmusic is a Stillwater, Okla.-based indie/neo-pscych/sex rock four piece. The band’s concept is based on the Newtonian theory that colors correlate with musical notes. On Wednesday, July 20, it brings its multihued performance to the Launchpad. Royal Bangs and The Great Depression open the 21-and-over show at 9 p.m. Eight ducats admits people into the venue. We asked Colourmusic bassist Colin Fleishacker to take his iPod for a spin and see what random items appeared. Below are the results.

EVENT HORIZON (Saturday, May 28)

Music for Heroes

Cloak and Dagger Fest • Gorgon City • electronic, house • Treasure Fingers • dance • option4

By Megan Reneau
No super-heroines will be present to heal anyone, but the music performed on May 27 and 28 starting at 8pm for Cloak and Dagger Fest at the El Rey Theater and Effex may just do that for those young people still recovering from school. Many well known DJs like Gorgon City, Two Fresh, Vindata, Lee Foss, Lee K, MANIK and Cashmere Cat are performing and even more local favorites like Reverend Mitton, Matthew Levi, DJ Eldon, Burn The Disco, PEZZ and DJ Ohm breaking down beats, as well. If you're not able to teleport like some dark, mysterious strangers, you can get tickets for entry starting at $15 for entry to Effex on day two (only folks 21 and up allowed), $20 for entry to El Rey on day one (18 years and older on this day) and $28 for the whole weekend.
