Music to Your Ears

Newfangled SXSW Showcase Application—Applying for a spot in the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival in Austin may seem mystifying at first, but there's really not much to it. In fact, it's easier than ever since the application process for SXSW has gone totally digital this year. Just go to the SXSW website, create a user account and password, and fill out a fairly straightforward online form. You'll pay a $30 fee and upload your music and press right there. And that's it. Then all that's left is to compulsively check your e-mail until Feb. 9, when the last acceptance and rejection notices will be sent out from SXSW HQ.

Evil ... in a bad way.

Don’t Listen To Skrewdriver

Avoiding racist music and record labels

A year ago, “ABC Primetime” ran a piece on a pair of twins, Lamb and Lynx Gaede, whose folk-pop act called Prussian Blue is serving as a conduit for the white nationalist (ahem, nazi prick) movement due to parental encouragement. In a realm of music typically comprised of sweaty, drunk, agro dudes playing some genre of hardcore, the innocent-looking teenage girls seem like unlikely purveyors of hate--a paradox that, partially due to the ABC program, garners a great deal of press which their website thanks for helping to spread their message.

In tune with Prana

Show Up!

Baird Hersey and Prana Breathe New Life into Ancient Vocal Technique

A cappella group offers musical and meditative experience

The music of Baird Hersey’s a cappella vocal group Prana shares many of the ethereally beautiful and exotic qualities of whalesong. Unlike our finned relatives’ vocalizations, however, Prana’s music is instantly accessible, with a profound capacity to quiet and focus the listener.

Shine On, You Crazy Iowan

“I have to have a certain kind of pen,” says William Elliott Whitmore, guitarist, banjoist, singer and tattooed troubadour. “I can’t have a ballpoint.”

Favourite Sons Down Beside Your Beauty · Elton John The Captain & The Kid · Glenn Danzig Black Aria II

The power of Satan compels Danzig to release a follow up to 1993’s mysti-classical hit Black Aria! Satan’s rebellion was the subject of the last release; this time Danzig’s dealing with Lillith, whore of the desert, Adam’s first wife, skull-faced, big-boobed cartoon chick on the album cover. In general, it sounds more like a horror movie score than a classical album, but it’s one demons, dark masters, the dead and undead alike, would respect. Danzig calls it “Wagnerian.” I call it more Danzig, just in time for Halloween.

So if one is to believe the truth and beauty inherently found on the interwebz through the agency of social media, then it is very possible the last show ever at Low Spirits will be happening on Tuesday…

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Apr 28)

Make Your Own Rock 'n' Roll

Nizhoni Girls • The Flossies • indie, rock • Midnight Stew • Nite Kidz • Lilith • shoegaze • Litter Brain

The poster for the concert happening at Moonlight Lounge on Friday, April 28, depicts a lonesome hogan placed in the midst of a black and white desolation. Flying out from a chimney on the traditional Diné dwelling is a plume of colorful smoke that names some of the bands that make that large sacred expanse to Burque’s west much more than a monochromatic desert. The smoky color of music pervades that realm, and now it’s drifting our way. With music by rez rebels Nizhóní Girls, The Flossies, Midnight Stew, Nite Kidz, Lilith and Burque’s own DIY punk powerhouse Litter Brain, this is going to be a concert guaranteed to give listeners a solid and soulfully sonic indication of how powerful the voices—and electric guitars and synths and drums—from our Native American neighbors and fellow punk rockers can be. The bands will be performing during this year’s Gathering of Nations Pow Wow to raise funds for the upcoming Asdzaa Warrior Fest. Join in on this rocking revelation for on only $5 and a valid 21+ ID. Doors are at 8pm; the righteous ritual begins at 9pm.
