Those of you who read the Morning Fix last week know that I'm a little bit of a David Bowie fan. With his passing, I've been spending a fair bit of time…

Drought City | Youngsville

Their debut album “Weeping Whiskey, Bleeding Beer” was a punchy, wild and witty commentary on love and youth culture, full of pithy reference and romance and, although there is still (always) more whiskey and beer to be had,…

It Might be "Drought City," but it Ain't Dry

While their debut album “Weeping Whiskey, Bleeding Beer” was a punchy, wild and witty commentary on love and youth culture, full of pithy reference and romance.  And, although there is still (always) more whiskey and beer to be had, Youngsville's second album, “Drought City” is (mostly)…

Burque Music Scene: Wet Sox

The Wet Sox.  Looking at all the Wet Sox videos makes me wish I had had a fake ID back in the day.  These guys were the best of the best.  I am fortunate to know John Cline who did their live sound and produced all their audio and video recordings.  He said "We were pretty technically sophisticated, we set up television monitors…

Hey Mayor Berry, are you listening?

A very wonderful, thoughtful, and visionary group of people created a place for the whole community to share - the Rail Yards Market. It was an overwhelmingly successful market that brought people from all over the city to gather as a community.

The city has a different idea of what that space should be.  The…

Burque Music Scene: Los Broadway Elks

I know that Austin and Nashville are great music cities, but did you know that Albuquerque has a great musical history and incredible talent?  That’s right, we have outstanding musicians, singers, and bands in this town!  Every Saturday I will post videos and a little history of musical legends, old and young, that either play in Albuquerque or got their start…

Art by the People

The folk art/recycle art community in this town is full of raw talent, quirkiness, and in some cases, pure genius.  What better way to celebrate all of this than sharing art, music and food? Today was the 11th Annual Corkfest festival in the South Valley.

To give you an idea of the history of this…

Willis Earl Beal – The Surprising Sound of Albuquerque

I swear it’s not my intention to turn this into a music column, but bear with me. I didn’t hear much New Mexican music growing up. I had images of cities I’d never seen—Detroit, Washington DC, London—based solely on their music, but Al Hurricane and Robert Mirabal weren’t exactly well-known in the upper Midwest.…

Christmas Albums For the Rest of Us

ANOTHER Throwback Thursday post about Christmas - this time from me. Merry Masshole Christmas!





As many of you know, I often talk about working at Bow Wow Records. I can't help it, that place ruled. One of the funnier aspects of working there was the sheer zoo that the place turned into in the weeks preceding the Christmas holiday.



Every year, we…
