3 ... 2 ... 1 ... Hyperland

Cosmic synth pop act embarks upon its maiden voyage

Hyperland wants to take you on an intergalactic pleasure cruise. The Alibi was alerted to the synth pop duo's celestial plans via a colorful in-flight manual delivered to our music desk. The band releases its six-song EP on Tuesday, Oct. 18, but Burqueños can experience “Tomorrow, Today” at the band's live debut on Saturday.

Eric Vloeimans’ Gatecrash

Eloquent jazz from below sea level

Hailing from Rotterdam, virtuoso trumpeter Eric Vloeimans (pronounced “Vlouie-mans”), like many of his jazz-playing countrymen, brings a good-natured swagger and cheery fearlessness to the music. Thursday at the Outpost, his quartet Gatecrash will windmill its way through engaging original compositions.

Music to Your Ears

They don’t have fireworks, a giant inflatable penis or any of the other spectacular bullshit of a major-label tour. Albuquerque’s A Hawk & A Hacksaw, Minneapolis’ Dark Dark Dark, and Chicago’s Pillars and Tongues don’t even have a name for their tour.

They do have an unusual collection of instruments, two vans and the ability to reshape time, although they accomplish that in different ways. The three groups will be altering perceptions at the South Broadway Cultural Center on Friday in an all-ages concert produced by AH&AH accordionist Jeremy Barnes.

EVENT HORIZON ()

“Gonna wear no socks and shoes”

World Beat Spectacular • Wagogo • folk, Latin, jazz, World • Da Terra Meiga • Celtic folk, flamenco • Rev The Music • variety

Black Friday can a time to sit back and ponder the grand mercies of one's life while quiet music plays in the background, a roaring fire warms one and plates of Thanksgiving leftovers lull your desires and dull your senses—that is unless you're one of those Alibi-reading folks that likes to rock out on the weekend. Active listeners can have their pumpkin pie and eat it too on Friday, Nov. 24, at Burt's Tiki Lounge! The big island of a club—in conjunction with Mariposa Music—presents a World Beat Spectacular that will help happy eaters dance away some of those turkey sangwiches and tamales that might otherwise render one unconscious for the rest of the weekend. Your blood will bubble and your feet will frolic to the sounds of legendary Burque band Wagogo. They'll be performing with Da Terra Meiga (a Celtic/Flamenco hybrid) and multi-media psychedelic outfit Rev The Music. The musical feast begins at 8pm, y'all.
