EVENT HORIZON (Friday, Oct 9)

Can I Get a Hallelujah?

Hozier • blues, indie, soul

By Cerridwen Stucky
You probably remember that in January a song filled the radio that made you say amen more than you had since going to church with your family as a child. Hozier’s “Take Me To Church” was in the top 100 singles in the U.S. for three weeks. His soft acoustic style paired with sorrowful crooning seemed to be just what the United States wanted and soon he started his countrywide tour. His show at Sandia Resort & Casino will be his smallest venue played. If you are in the mood for some romanticized angst or upbeat songs about awful things then this is the show for you.

El Angel de la Musica

José González • indie, folk • Riothorse Royale

By Megan Reneau
Heads up—an angel named José González drops down from heaven and lands at Sunshine Theater on Monday, Oct. 12. González's voice is heavenly and when combined with his soothing classical guitar melodies, causes elation of the senses and profound introversive relaxation (totally how angels should make you feel, from what I understand). González lives up to the hype, continually getting amazing album and concert reviews. He'll likely play music from his long-awaited album (seven years we've been waiting), Vestiges & Claws. Opening for González is Riothorse Royale. The duo create beautiful, kindred harmonies. For $22, this show is a promising break from everyday life and a much welcome ending to a Monday evening.
