Music to Your Ears

By Laura Marrich

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.

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

By August March
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 only $5 and a valid 21+ ID. Doors are at 8pm; the righteous ritual begins at 9pm.
