Paquito D’Rivera Heads Funk Tango Quintet

Ebullient Cubano brings Grammy-winning crew to second week of the 2008 New Mexico Jazz Festival

On virtuoso clarinetist/saxophonist and award-winning composer Paquito D’Rivera’s most recent Latin jazz recording, Funk Tango, his omnivorous musical appetite provides a wide-ranging feast for the ears—from a bop-infused tango (Astor Piazolla’s “Revirado”) to a dreamy bolero (“Como un Bolero”) to a classically tinged tribute to Cuban composer Ernesto Lecuona (“Contradanza”) to an original Latin take on John Coltrane’s “Giant Steps.” Along the way, he quotes from Cole Porter’s “Another Opening, Another Show,” The Beatles’ “Eleanor Rigby” and the Mexican folksong “La Cucaracha,” among others.

The Life and Times

Leaning on Floyd

The Life and Times’ lead singer Allen Epley knows the term “alternative rock” conjures up negative images of post-grunge hackery. He’s also aware his band isn’t the first to call Pink Floyd a primary influence. But The Life and Times has an alt.rock flair and a lust for Floyd—and that’s just how it is.

Sonic Reducer

Weezer Weezer · The Dutchess and the Duke She's the Dutchess, He's the Duke · The Hold Steady Stay Positive

Weezer's latest release, nicknamed "The Red Album," is another sad reminder of a great band that once was. Ever since 1996's Pinkerton, once-lauded geek-rock guru Rivers Cuomo hasn't been able to reproduce the magic that made his band one of the most craved commodities of the late '90s. Haphazard attempts at ironic-rapping (Weezer really missed the boat on the whole rap-rock craze) and superficial, empty and painfully predictable songwriting abound. There are some palatable tracks, like the single "Pork and Beans," but too often it sounds as though Cuomo is trying to write a catchy tune instead of just letting it happen. (SM)

EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Dec 4)

I Tawt I Heard a Puddytat

Tacocat • post post punk pop • Red Light Cameras

Everything about Tacocat is candy-coated. Technicolor-dyed hair, surfy guitar vibes and unabashed riot grrl revivalism combine in this energetic quartet from Seattle to make some of the best pop-punk tunes you’ve heard since you became okay with listening to pop-punk again. It’s good music for gleefully burning pictures of your ex. With punchy but sweet vocals and catchy choruses that you’ll be humming for days, their latest album NVM is worthy of heavy rotation. Their second LP (and first on the Hardly Art label), NVM features beefed-up production but the same garage-y, DIY sound from their earlier EPs Woman’s Day and Take Me to Your Dealer. Stand-out tracks are “Crimson Wave” (which is about exactly what you think it’s about) and “Psychedelic Quinceñera,” a ballad about a girl who would rather forego the regular quinceñera formalities on her 15th birthday and get hella blitzed with her amigas instead. After exhausting the basement venues of Washington, Tacocat is heading inland on their winter tour with Sallie Ford. Red Light Cameras open. Pay your 10 bucks and get ready for the most colorful 21+ mosh pit of your life!
