SXSW will not fix your life and give you a music career. But it's really fun.

SXSW will not make you rich and famous, but it’s really fun. Or, how to market yourself and make better art.

Music to Your Ears

Friends With Benefits

By Captain America
From Albuquerque to Las Cruces, Kenta Henmi has been slinging a guitar around these parts for well over 15 years. In the past 12 months, though, he’s been plagued with a series of health issues that have kept him in and out hospital beds, and now the local music community is coming together to lend him a hand.

Three String Bale’s Random Tracks

By Jessica Cassyle Carr
Three String Bale is an Americana/roots band that’s been playin’ an original mixture of old-time, country, blues and bluegrass around town for a few years. The band laid down tracks for its first album at Frogville Records’ studio in Santa Fe in June. The release of hot on the skin, sweet in the mouth happens this weekend. In anticipation, we peer into guitarist Thomas Studer’s anachronistic, Kiss-laden music library.

Not Just Red

Chevelle • alternative • Black Map • Dinosaur Pile-Up • rock

By August March
Chevelle, an indie band from the Midwest, portrays their hard sound—expressed with exasperated vocals, a muscular rhythms and chunky guitar riffs that repeatedly drift off into tangential melodies—as an artful thing, comparable to '90s peers like Tool. And they do sound like Tool—if their latest single “Door to Door Cannibals” is any indication—when that band was at its peak at the end of the last millennium. Whether this particular vernacular is still credible in a rocanrol world that is rapidly evolving away from rocanrol remains to be seen, yet Chevelle does provide solid affirmation that such beefy sounds are still commercially, if not aesthetically viable. Currently a familial unit comprised of brothers Pete and Sam Loeffler as well as their brother-in-law Dean Bernardini, Chevelle continues to use themes of darkness and domination to draw radio-friendly audiences worldwide. Burqueños can get a taste of their rockingly reserved rampage when the trio visit our town on Tuesday, Jan. 24. Black Map and Dinosaur Pile-Up open this 13+ show at the El Rey that costs between $25-$45.
