Music to Your Ears

Return of The Roxiehearts—Rejoice! Albuquerque all-girl garage punkers will hit the stage at Burt's Tiki Lounge after a baby-induced breather that lasted just under two years. The Roxiehearts are made up of Cara (drummer and babymaker), Penny (guitarist and singer), Amy (singer) and Burt's manager/bartender/booker Melissa (bassist). Melissa says that this show will be instrumental in helping them get back into the swing of things, adding "we will definitely be playing out more often and there will be new songs in the future." The show is slated for Friday, Jan. 6, at what's being billed as Amanda and Ethan's Going Away Party. (Note to Amanda and Ethan: Your friends will miss you and they wish you the best in New York.) The Roxiehearts are joined by Leche De Hombre, a reportedly kick-ass group of guys from Las Cruces, Swingin' Meat and The El Paso Hot Button, who's actually from Oklahoma City, and is really only made up of one guy. This is the show of the week, without a doubt.

Three kids in Kid Moe

Music Magnified

Kid Moe

with DV8 and special guests

Concord, Calif.'s power-pop purveyors Kid Moe have a sound that's part glowing metal fuzz and part cough syrup aftertaste. They haven't quite grown up all the way but, if bands like Weezer are any indication, you'd better hurry up and see them before they turn into Hugh Hefner-worshiping crumb bums. It's Kid Moe's walking-through-the-mukish style that makes the trio of two fellas and a lady so darn charming. Their latest release, Hella Okay, takes several digs at California culture while giving us bittersweet pop songs for the hopelessly unhip. Vincent Lay's vocals are free of embellishment, and although his lyrics could benefit from some tinkering ("why can't my new girlfriend be like my old girlfriend?" is a typical passage), his unapologetically a-melodic voice sets the band apart from their power-pop peers.

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Oct 9)

Can I Get a Hallelujah?

Hozier • blues, indie, soul

You probably remember that in January a song filled the radio that made you say amen more than you had since going to church with your family as a child. Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” was in the top 100 singles in the U.S. for three weeks. His soft acoustic style paired with sorrowful crooning seemed to be just what the United States wanted…

Snowy Egret Has Landed

Myra Melford’s Snowy Egret • piano, jazz, composer

Pianist Myra Melford, a Guggenheim fellow who specializes in cross-genre, postmodern musical deconstruction, performs with her ensemble Snowy Egret at Outpost Performance Space on Friday, Oct. 16. Basing her work in a plethora of quintessential artistic experiences that encompasses everyone and everything from Rumi to Japanese Butoh and Meso-American Indigenous traditions, Melford brings a deft touch to her dream-like musical explorations. She’ll be in the company of instrumentalists Ron Miles on trumpet, guitarist Liberty Ellman, bassist Stomu Takeishi and drummer Tyshawn Sorey. Together they’ll perform work both translucent and opaque as they transport listeners to a world without sonic boundaries. Tickets range from $15-20 for this transcendent trip.
