The Porter Draw have built a reputation for high energy, sweat-drenched shows coupled with tight harmonies of wistfully delicate lyrics of longing, heartbreak, and the American experience. Combine that with a foot-stomping, booty swinging beat.

The Porter Draw
Chris Walsh

Oftentimes, come the weekend, my friend Mike would head out of town to commune with nature, to take in the great breadth and width of the American wilderness. I'm sure some of his sojourns led him up into the hills north and east of here, particularly to the town of Madrid. An old mining town with a hippie-like patina and lots of long-lost watering holes, it probably was perfect for what ailed him. The Mineshaft (2846 Hwy 14), an old-timey bar in the middle of the village, offers a wide variety of diversions, from flavorful, award-winning burgers to hand-shaken margaritas and a heap of N.M. microbrews. They've also got the market cornered on Americana this weekend, when The Porter Draw performs there on Saturday, Feb. 4. Comprised of some of Burque's best players, some of whom are veterans of our town's legendary rock ensemble Lousy Robot (which ironically happened to feature another man lost to the mists of time, Jim Phillips), The Porter Draw hews together the majesty of rock and the tragedy implicit in the American experience. Using plangent expression and wistful, fulsome harmonies underpinned by some of the most competent, boot-stompin’ instrumentalism known in these parts, the band creates an unforgettable musical experience. You can check them out for free on Saturday night when they start jamming at 7pm.
