Playing Cowboys and Indian

Mugen Hoso • Constant Harmony • pop, alternative • Shrewd Destroy Zullos
The Facebook event posting for the event featuring Japanese hard rock duo Mugen Hoso—as well as two of Burque's most shredded out, burning with black fire and tasty chops into noisy oblivion bands, Constant Harmony and Shrewd—says that the show will destroy the venue, Zullos on Wednesday, Sept. 19 beginning at 8pm. I certainly hope not, because many Downtown-going, music-craving peeps in town have discovered cool jams emanating from this relatively new joint and frankly it would be nice to see much more. Anyway, you can count on the Sillery siblings to rock the heck out as Constant Harmony while Shrewd is about as sonically screwed as it gets here in the high desert. To top it all off the headliners implore listeners who visit their website that they “must shout and dance when they see our show.” “Let's rock together!” the band further intones. And why not; for the price of a $10 cover and an ID that says you are 21+, you can't get closer to the rocanrol truth than this.

Lauryn Hill • hip-hop
It's been 20 years since Lauryn Hill's ground-breaking neo-soul inflected hip-hop recording, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill dropped. Since then, Hill's once for-sure-going-to-be-hot career has moved in fits and jumps as the artist behind such megahits like her rendition of “Killing Me Softly,” “Doo-Wop” and “Ex-Factor” wrestled with fame, responsibility and fans that blew both hot and cold as she faced media attention for erratic behavior and prison for tax evasion. This year's tour has been good to Hill though, and proves she's still able to pack big houses with her big sound. Lauryn Hill appears at Isleta Amphitheater on Monday, Sept. 24 at 6:30pm. Hip soul artist Talib Kweli and rapper Tierra Whack are also on the bill. Tickets range in price from $20 to $131 and this is an all-ages (13+) event.
