Music Review

The Devil and the Desert

Red Mesa’s brave odyssey into a scorching spiritual desert

A cohesive, cathartic creation that speaks to the despair that can lead one into the heart of the desert—and the answers one might find there.

Are You Ready?

Purple Reign • Prince tribute band

Take our word for it: The Purple One was the greatest rock guitarist to ever live on the planet Earth. Not even the Deaner compares, dudes. A master of every genre The Artist touched, Prince's hip-hop is so fly and far-out that it won't be properly understood for at least 200 years. For reference, we call your attention to a song titled “Pussy Control” for confirmation of what is otherwise known as la neta. While you're on that princely power kick, check out the dude's Purple Reign tribute show, a live concert experience on Friday, Jan. 24 at The Showroom at Isleta Casino. For a mere $25 and a 21-plus ID, experience a semblance of a mystical force, a simulacrum of something sublime. He may have departed this realm early but the essence of what Prince created, his musical compositions—performed live by a killer band—remains.
