Show Up!

Post Honeymoon

A rock-cycle built for two

Nick Kraska and Rachel Shindelman wanted to be the sole creative forces in a band—but first they had to tie the knot.

The Cal Haines Connection

The drummer debuts a new CD and trio, capped by a performance by the John Proulx/Bobby Shew Quintet

Since returning to New Mexico a few years ago—and packing a résumé that includes performances with Diahann Carroll, Al Greene and Clark Terry—drummer Cal Haines has been much in demand on the jazz scene, appearing with the Alpha Cats and backing headliners at various venues in Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

Sonic Reducer

La Junta Slangin Dirt

La Junta toys with rap-rock and lives to tell the tale. Bands like P.O.D. and Limp Bizkit have sullied that genre’s name, but La Junta pulls it off by adding more to the equation. Latin rhythms, maracas, congas and saxophone leave their footprint on most of the 12 tracks. La Junta even uses the glorious cowbell. Slangin Dirt is soulful and not gimmicky as a result of the instrumental accoutrements. The band's irrepressibly energetic delivery tells me that La Junta would be an ideal band to invite to play your summer barbecue or all-night rager. Catch the group's CD release show at Launchpad on Friday, June 26. (Simon McCormack)

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!
