Rock Reads

A Portal is Opened

Smith memoir intricate, rewarding

In opening a book, Patti Smith suggests, a portal is opened. In the memoir M Train, which follows 2010's vastly different Just Kids, Smith examines her life through the literary works that have impressed themselves upon her.

Music Interview

The King Khan & BBQ Show

Bring the doo, the wop and the weird to Burque

King Khan is a consummate front-man whose guitar and vocals, combined with his wild stage presence, bring The King Khan & BBQ Show to a seldom-accomplished level of trash rock weirdness. Weekly Alibi spoke with Khan from his home in Berlin where he was preparing for the “Nipples and Bits” Tour supporting their new album Bad News Boys.

Take These Blues, Please

Buddy Guy • blues, R&B • Jonny Lang

Those who find some soulful and sublime succor in the blues can line up at the teat of heavenly kindness this coming weekend when blues legends Jonny Lang and Buddy Guy grace our city and state with their brilliantly bluesy countenances. The duo, on tour for part of the summer before they each embark on solo runs, have a gig at Sandia Casino Amphitheater on Saturday, Aug. 18 at 8pm. If you recall, Lang was the child prodigy who performed at the White House after being signed by A&M at the age of 15. And Buddy Guy, oh he was just was one of the house guitarists at Chess Records. En serio, the dude has influenced just about every electric guitarist who came after him, so we're not going to name names, but you know you can hear Guy's licks whilst listening to Page and Vaughn and Melchiondo. This is probably one of the best shows of the summer to catch. If you really wanna know, you better go. Starting at $30 per azure-stained unit, tickets are going quickly.
