Cowboys and Indian rock away genre stereotypes

It’s refreshing to have your stereotypical notions obliterated by other humans. That’s what happened to me when I interviewed Cowboys and Indian guitarist Gerome Fragua and upright bassist Matthew Ezzard. Expecting fashion-rockabilly cats, I was pleasantly surprised to spend some time gabbing with two intelligent, open-minded, funny and musically diverse dudes who care more about rehearsing than futzing around with Dapper Dan’s pomade.

In the article, Playing Cowboys and Indian, I noted that drummer Jeff Cooper couldn’t make the interview because he was on the road as a short-haul truck driver, but I neglected to explain the other members’ day jobs. Fragua serves as the music director for Paragon Church, a Southern Baptist church in Rio Rancho. The band has even played there. Ezzard is currently immersed in his final semester of fire science studies at CNM and hopes to become a structural firefighter.

Culture Shock

Another Earth

At first glance, painter Melissa Morgan's Enter Anthropocene embraces an ethereal, flower-childlike bond between humans and nature. But that's where Cassidy Watt—owner of Metallo Gallery (2863 Hwy. 14, Madrid)—says Morgan shows her sleight of hand for subtle metaphor. "There is a celebration in the paintings because they're very beautiful and pretty," says Watt, "but I think there's also a warning there."
