  • Ain't Life a Mystery?

    Bad Religion, a first generation punk rock outfit straight outta El Lay, continues to absorb and reflect American culture in an age when the form of rocanrol they espouse is particularly germane to the conversation we're all having right now about where America is going. With potent, driving and dang fine tuneage like 1994's “21st Century (Digital Boy)” and 2007's “New Dark Ages,” the band, across several different iterations, has raged against everything that needs fixing in our culture, from politics to religion. You can be part of the Albuquerque audience that affirms the value of these DIY democratic tendencies by attending a show by these prolifically opinionated yet totally rocked out symbols of the scene. They have a gig on Friday, Oct. 4 at El Rey Theatre. It's an all-ages gathering and admission is $32. Dave Hause and The Mermaid and Emily Davis and The Murder Police open. The music begins at 8pm. (August March)

    Jerry Seinfeld is a comedian who made it big by taking bits of the mean spirited—if supremely funny—insult schtick of Don Rickles, mixing that with the super-cynicism of his pal and cohort Larry David and turning the whole schmear into a type of self-absorbed but hugely relevant comedic television fare that consumed most viewers in the '90s and provided a heck of a lot of influence for today's young and self-insecure comics—who sometimes seem to be insulting themselves, frankly—and gave David's career a second wind in the aughts. Why not try and figure out what all of that means—or doesn't—by going to the source itself? A master of the postmodern, Jerry Seinfeld performs live on Friday, Oct. 4 at 7pm in downtown Burque at the Kiva Auditorium. Admission prices for this all-ages comedy extravaganzarange in price from $135 to $250 for a trip to a place where the normative gets twisted until there are nuts in the eye and Superman paraphernalia is scattered everywhere.

  • Yo, Johann!

    Sebastian Bach (no relation to the high lord of sacred baroque music, Johann Sebastian Bach) was the frontman for a hair band called Skid Row until he was unceremoniously fired back in 1996. The band kept on rocking with different lead singers, but so did Bach, who made a late career out of performing the early oeuvre of the band, playing in the national touring company of Jesus Christ Superstar as the messiah himself, jamming out with Kelley Deal (my favorite cannonballer, eh) and appearing in a recurring role on “The Gilmore Girls.” That all sounds pretty cool but what's even cooler is that Bach performs the first, eponymous Skid Row album in its entirety for a live audience on Sunday, Oct. 6 at Sunshine Theater at 8pm. Tickets for this all-ages, once-in-a-lifetime glimpse into the glorious rocanrol lifestyle of a true legend cost only $20. (August March)
