Note to self: Meow Wolf is getting better at booking shows by the maximalist pop-flavored electro-rock ensembles that are au currant with the 15 to 25 demographic. The Flaming Lips, a bunch of dudes my age and from my neck of the woods—i.e. the ancient Southwest punk rock road stretching from OKC to ABQ and thence to PHX and the fabled coast, where giants dwelt in the north woods, it was believed—seemed to hit it off well with the young ones, with their sparkles, bells, balloons and stuffed animals, up in Taos a couple of weeks ago. Next on the list, Rooney at Meow Wolf (1352 Rufina Circle) in Santa Fe on Sunday, Aug. 26. Robert Schwartzman, the brains behind Rooney is some type of visionary, that’s for sure. Just ask Ric Ocasek or Rivers Cuomo. The multi-instrumentalist has been working musical magic as at least part of the band for almost 20 years, so he’s not a young thing—but like the Lips, the exuberance and optimistically psych-stained tone of his work appeals to the young ones. There’s a recent album, Washed Away, that is delirious but sometimes deep, by the way. 7pm • $15 to $85 • All-ages.
