Live music hunter-and-gatherer Mike Smith takes us on a trip through his February adventures in live, local music in this month’s Last Month in Music. Scope related A/V below. I particularly recommend watching Boba & Gobi’s performance of “Klaus Klaus Dr. Meatball Dr. Meatball” featuring A Hawk and a Hacksaw’s Jeremy Barnes and Heather Trost.

Good literature is a conversation between the author and the characters, or the author and the subject—but the best draws readers into a conversation with themselves. Comprised of literary and thoughtful folk, The Glass Menageries invites you to converse while you sway to inspired dream pop that paints divine mind pictures.
Not to be confused with the nonprofit choir for young men, the three sultry ladies of Albuquerque Boys Choir will charm your ears with sweet harmonies and a plethora of stringed instruments. ABQBC jams out catchy Americana-tinged ditties on guitar, banjo, charango, washboard, and whatever else its members can get their hands on. If you like seeing talented musicians switching it up on multiple instruments, or want a plastic tube patched with duct tape to emit pleasing melodies, these are your girls. If you’re into free shows, be sure to catch them at the Lomas-Tramway Public Library on Tuesday as part of AMP Concerts free library events series.
