Music to Your Ears

By
Regrettably, I discovered the marvelous Burque band Jenny Invert much later than many of its avid fans. I was missing out. The five-piece makes music that is a mix of rock ‘n’ roll and sweet indie, with a twist of jazz and some nods to vaudeville.

Arlen Asher-Paul Gonzales Quintet

Together again, teacher and student find a common thread

By

Woodwind maestro Arlen Asher and trumpeter Paul Gonzales first played together more than 40 years ago. Asher was visiting the first-grade class taught by his late wife, Jo, at Albuquerque’s Montgomery Elementary School. He brought along his collection of saxes and flutes and allowed the little rug rats to enjoy a hands-on experience with them.

Burger Art

Most hamburgers are unhealthy, but this one is exceptionally bad for you. The inedible concoction draws attention to a performance by Ryat from Philadelphia, as well as battles between a trilogy of duos—Fart House, Great White Buffalo and ROO. This rock show happens on Sunday, March 20, at 8 p.m. at Dad’s House (601 Solano NE). Five dollars grants admission. (Jessica Cassyle Carr)

Take These Blues, Please

Buddy Guy • blues, R&B • Jonny Lang

By August March
Those who find some soulful and sublime succor in the blues can line up at the teat of heavenly kindness this coming weekend when blues legends Jonny Lang and Buddy Guy grace our city and state with their brilliantly bluesy countenances. The duo, on tour for part of the summer before they each embark on solo runs, have a gig at Sandia Casino Amphitheater on Saturday, Aug. 18 at 8pm. If you recall, Lang was the child prodigy who performed at the White House after being signed by A&M at the age of 15. And Buddy Guy, oh he was just was one of the house guitarists at Chess Records. En serio, the dude has influenced just about every electric guitarist who came after him, so we're not going to name names, but you know you can hear Guy's licks whilst listening to Page and Vaughn and Melchiondo. This is probably one of the best shows of the summer to catch. If you really wanna know, you better go. Starting at $30 per azure-stained unit, tickets are going quickly.
