Music to Your Ears

Home, Sweet Home
The stock market is contracting so fast you can almost hear it snap. But there's an upside to tight times. They remind us that wealth isn't how much we own, it's valuing what we have. And the most fortunate people are rich in friends, neighbors, family, community.
We Should Be Dead
But we disagree
By Simon McCormack
When asked whether his band will conquer America, Stephen Purcell only musters a halfhearted “Yeah, we’re gonna take it over,” before breaking into nervous laughter.

Jazz With an Accent
Saxophonist David Sánchez
By Mel Minter
From the opening notes on his latest CD—the Grammy-nominated Cultural Survival—saxophonist David Sánchez captures your attention with a sound as compact, muscular and lithe as a panther.

Living Things Habeas Corpus · Joshua James The Sun Is Always Brighter · The Bran Flakes I Have Hands
If Living Things led a revolution, it would do it wearing a leather jacket. The steady jabs of towering guitar and anarchistic rants come wrapped in effortless cool. It’s a shame the band’s so fed up with capitalism, because this brand of slick cock-rock is perfect for a sports car commercial. Living Things can’t quite rein in the slow ballad, but it rarely strays from fast-striking riot starters. The St. Louis four-piece jams its modus operandi down your throat until you choke it down, and that proves a supremely effective delivery method. (SM)

2016 Vans Warped Tour • Atreyu • Good Charlotte • pop punk • New Found Glory • rock • Mayday Parade • Motionless in White • metal • Waka Flocka Flame • rap
By August March
Good news, everybody! This year's Van's Warped Tour is coming through Burque—albeit the festival's given up its lauded positioning at the big amphitheater south of town for the slightly more placid, arcadian and sometimes floaty atmosphere at Balloon Fiesta Park. So, just in case you want to know, the whole schmear goes off on Monday, August 1. The Albuquerque iteration of this ultra-famous yearly event will feature preeminent 'Merican musical acts like Against The Current, Chelsea Grin, Ice Nine Kills, Less Than Jake, Mother Feather, Teenage Bottlerocket and We The Kings. These performances are in addition to a host of other winsome activities designed to lure the youth of the vicinity into the devilish servitude associated with rocanrol music, including a comp ticket for parents (if you're under the age of 18), a hydration station and a totally awesome sponsor and vendor village. Tickets range in price from $37.50-$47.50 and are available through Ticketmaster.
