Aural Fixation

Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows

In a world of nuclear meltdowns, political deception and never-ending piles of laundry, most of us could use a little fantasy. With a frilly and fanciful spirit, the Weekly Alibi’s Group Hug created the Spring Social—an evening of treats, mirror balls, balloons, flowers, unicorn horns and shimmery sounds. You’re invited.

Group Hug

Alibi Spring Social

It’s that time again. Love and all her related allergens are in the air. Unicorns mate in the streets.

Yes, it’s springtime in Albuquerque. Gather, bosom buddies, on Friday, April 22, for a dance party at the Launchpad. There will be frosty treats from Ecco Gelato, organic deli from Make My Lunch and donuts from Donut Mart.

Tie-on those homemade unicorn horns, for the photo booth returns! Photo Booth Rentals of New Mexico provides the service free to you. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Georgia at Balloon Express (109 5th Street SW) who will fill our lives with rainbows and flowers.

But the real point of this thing is to float to you, through the marshmallow clouds between us, the sparkly sounds of Monster Paws, Then Eats Them and The Glass Menageries.

Plus, our very own music editor, DJ Cassyle, will spin high-glucose tracks between sets.

Ahhh.

New Monster Paws video

Burque electro pop group Monster Paws made a slick new video for its song “Ray of Light.” It depicts a group of hipsters running and frolicking in the sunshine (I hope they put sun block on that beautiful, youthful skin), until an apocalypse happens and transports them to outer space.

See Monster Paws perform live on Friday, April 22, when the Alibi’s Group Hug presents a Spring Social at the Launchpad. Then Eats Them and The Glass Menageries also play, and your truly will deejay sparkly pop music in between sets. For your pleasure, there will be free food, sweet and savory, and free photo booth. Costumes are encouraged. Admission—for those 21-and-over—is only $5. RSVP and invite your friends via Facebook here. See you there!

Live Human Sacrifice

This flyer depicts a 1924 American interpretation of 18th century Europe. The image is accented with colors and fonts that would not have been accepted in either place or time period, and notifies the public that Milch de Máquina and Then Eats Them will perform their respective avant weirdnesses on Friday, May 14, at 8 p.m. This all-ages show costs $5 and takes place at The Kosmos (1715 Fifth Street NW). Also, something about a human sacrifice ... bring popcorn! (Jessica Cassyle Carr)
