Music to Your Ears

STOVE Goes Cold, PMS Resurfaces

The bad news is STOVE is closing. The good news is the space isn't going away--it's getting passed on to the folks of Black Market Goods, an underground traveling gallery (skip to the arts section to read about the details of the handover). The bad news is that means no more (ir)regular live music at 114 Morningside NE. But the good news is the last music event at the East Nob Hill artspace/venue will be a reunion of Albuquerque pirate queens Potty Mouth Sherry's. Relocated bandmate Cassady Fernandez is back in New Mexico for Christmas, and so PMS is rebooting for a quickie. Say “hi” to PMS and “bye” to STOVE as a music venue this Friday, Dec. 26, with Fando and Roñoso. The show starts at 8:30 p.m. and cover's $5.

Sonic Reducer

School of Seven Bells Alpinisms · Fall Out Boy Folie Deux · Musiq Soulchild OnMyRadio

Fall Out Boy’s fourth album aims to push Britney Spears’ For the Record docu-mercial out of people's minds and give ears something slightly more valuable. Monstrously trendy Pete Wentz and the other guys of Fall Out Boy are sticking with their trademark catchy, fast-paced choruses and occasional clapping--which will certainly please some listeners and leave others wanting more. The surrealities of Hollywood are tossed into the album with smirking lines like “detox just to re-tox” from “Disloyal Order of Water Buffaloes.” If you think “I Don’t Care” will be Fall Out Boy’s only hit off this record, you will be sadly mistaken.

Face Your Fears

Technophobia • dark electronic • Austin Morrell • Mala in Se • Monogamy

The new wave of popular music has tended toward the electronic side of the musical spectrum, with EDM’s massive drops slowly dominating airwaves and the music festival circuit. Typically, it seems, this electronic movement has grown to be popularly identified with glow sticks, diffraction glasses and inexcusably appropriated Native American headdresses. This Friday, June 23, however, Technophobia and their brooding strain of dark electronic music will grace Burt’s TIki Lounge with an important reminder of the vast realm posed by electronic music for everyone, not just half naked-teenagers slathered in glitter…
