Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

100

Seven years and 99 performances ago, the Bosque House Concerts were almost another New Mexican What If—a fantastic idea that, somewhere along the way, disappears into the lazy obscurity of mañana. But praise la Virgen de Guadalupe! After this week's Sunday, Aug.12, show, the Bosque House Concerts will have collected a nice round number's worth of happy memories. The 100th Bosque House Concert will also be its last.

Kind of St. Vincent

Armloads of brainpower make for strong album

By Marisa Demarco

Sonic Reducer

Danbert Nobacon and the Pine Valley Cosmonauts The Library Book of the World · Over the Rhine The Trumpet Child · The Section Quartet Fuzzbox

Danbert Nobacon is one of those crazy genius musicians. Nobacon's folksy rock is part meticulously calculated political poetry, part ad hoc ramblings of a man holding on to reality's edge with the strum of his guitar. Just in case there is any doubt of his mental dispostion, he repeatedly outs the voices in his head in "The Last Drop in the Glass" and again in "Information Storm," beating the point to a pulp. His earthy, impassioned voice casts a charming line, baiting and hooking willing ears to his message. Whether or not the message is understood isn't the point—just that it's heard. [AD]

A Man and His Portable Amp

Local troubadour explores his city through sound

By Laura Marrich

The clincher is a 9-volt amp peeking from his back pocket. You've seen this man before. Maybe he was shuffling through Downtown, maybe up near Nob Hill or down in Old Town, this guy who ambles and noodles on an electric guitar. This dude who skips muffled, dirty sounding chords down sidewalks, off storefront windows, into alcoves like stones across water.

Show Up!

Santa Fe Musik Fest

Rising tents and stages liven up view of the Downs

By Marisa Demarco

Santa Feans watched the eight-foot letters, made of painted rocks laid on grass, slowly fade over time. "The Downs at Santa Fe" it said. The letters fell to disrepair as the venue fell to disuse.

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.
