Brotherhood of the (Sad Baby) Wolf

I guess we have to talk about The Shins now

Eschewing the Shins-centric perspective Sad Baby Wolf's publicist urged, Marisa Demarco shares the tale of a local indie rock quintet whose members value family, friendship and maintaining a sense of humor as much as they enjoy rocking out in the limelight.

Flyer on the Wall

Spañapalooza Turns 11

This charmingly jumbled monochrome flyer invites Nuevo Mexicanos of all ages to Española Skate Park on Saturday for the 11th Annual Spañapalooza. Skate demos, graffiti battles, food and performances by enchanted-land bands—ranging from Burqueño hip-hop crew Zoology to Taoseño black metal duo Willow to Española-based glitch / dubstep act SIMpill—make the hour-and-a-half drive well worth it.

Luke, I Am Your Son

'90s Grand Opening Party • 69 Boyz • hip-hop, bass

We might get in trouble for saying so, but the Miami bass subgenre of hip-hop has some of the hottest dang beats out there. We'll never forget the time Daily Lobo staffer Juliette Torrez played “Me So Horny” in the college newsroom back in 1989. You just can't unhear stuff like that. Flash forward 30 years and other bassy bands from deep in the panhandle are still rocking it. Check out a saucy second generation of that Southern flavor on Friday, Dec. 13 at 8pm when Hush Ultra NightLife hosts a '90s Grand Opening Party featuring the somewhat still notorious 69 Boyz. That's right, you OG cabrones, the folks responsible for the 1994 platinum single “Tootsie Roll” are in town and getting down. Join them at this 21-plus show for only a nominal fee. Telephone or text 269-3301 for more details.

Wearing Only Flowers

Big Head Todd and the Monsters • alternative, blues

After more than 30 years of touring and with an almost cultlike following of mountain-sprung funk fairies gamboling along with them, Big Head Todd and the Monsters are a jam band, which is a very American thing. Their music—distilled by determination, a deep groove and driving around the mountain West and Left Coast in a van called “the Colonel”—is pretty, pretty good
