In a perfect world, I'd write a post about a different local band here every week. I've had an active interest in the Albuquerque local music scene since the first week of August, 1993, when I became a resident of the Duke City. Actually, I think the first live music show I remember going to here was not a local act, but John Waite, at the Sunshine Theatre, in the Fall of '93.…

Had the pleasure of winning a couple tickets to go see ¡Globalquerque! on Friday night, September 17th and I realized that I've been remiss in not writing a review here on it! So here goes...
If you haven't been to it ever before, it takes place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center on 4th and Avenida César Chávez. I definitely recommend showing up a bit early as parking is limited on site. The shows start at about 6pm and end after 11. If you haven't been to the Hispanic Cultural… Continue

Thanks to DCF and AMP concerts
for this lovely evening. I will admit that my initial reason for wanting to go was because of Mr. Mombat. He has been teaching himself guitar for several years and I have gotten to hear increasingly better versions "52 Vincent Black Lighting".
I had not been to anything at the Museum since the amphitheater was re-modled. It is a wonderful venue. We got there just as… Continue

Are you kickn' on your couch with a bowl o'chips watching you favorite re-runs of Seinfeld wishing you could be listening to some good music? Well *POOF* your wish has been granted.

Friday after work, when I logged into DCF, I saw the posting for tickets by Miss Scott
. I clicked on to it, and looked around the virtual space, surprised no one had yet replied to the post. I mean, when DCF offers tickets, there's usually a rush of cyber feet to be the first there.
I read the post about the concert by… Continue

Recently won tickets to the Solas concert here on Duke City Fix and promised to write a review, well, here it is!
All in all an enjoyable night out for one that didn't happen. At least two of the band members barely made it out of Ireland before they close the airports down again for the grumpy volcano 'Eyjafjallajokull', only to then have fun with the Abq winds on their flight from Phoenix to Abq. On the personal side, I had my back go out for the first time in years, and being new… Continue

I’ve been thinking a lot about cooperation lately. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’ve been watching the lack of cooperation in Congress and am hoping for better.
Whatever the roots, my thoughts tend toward the performing arts. Artists are known for their egos and their temperaments, but what they should be known for instead is their cooperative attitude, especially those in the performing arts. Yes, there are those whose egos become impediments to cooperation, but most performers I’ve… Continue

Last Sunday the Church of Beethoven
had a packed house for the first in a series of performances of the six Brandenburg concertos. OK, so they didn’t actually play the notes in reverse order, but although it was the first in the series, they performed Concerto No. 6.
The next Brandenburg in the Church of Beethoven series will be No. 5 performed December 27, with the rest… Continue

It was pretty cool and a little weird to see my face on a billboard off of I-40. My kids get a kick out of seeing it every time we pass by. They all yell, "Es papi!" or "Fiesta de Colores!". I had to get a picture of it for memories sake.
It's pretty neat to make a living doing something my children can enjoy and sometimes take part in. I have some great memories of playing at the Downtown growers market, and having them join the… Continue

Les Paul was not only the inventor of the electric guitar, but one of the founding pioneers of multi-track recording. Music, as we know it today, wouldn't exist if not for Les Paul. RIP!

Despite their enigmatic name, it fits: Extra Golden is rare, valuable, and the lovechild of two very different bands
from two very different geographies.
Tuesday's concert at the Cooperage illustrated this collaboration and the audience was dazzled by interweaving rock and "benga" sounds. Extra Golden's troupe is formed by two Kenyan musicians, and three American guitarists/musicians.… Continue

It's almost here. After one year of planning, meetings, fund-raising in a less than prime economy, promotions, meetings, talent scouting, and meetings....the world's first Slam Poet Laureate program is preparing to take off. And what better place than right here in the 505?
After Albuquerque hosted the world's largest national poetry slam in 2005, carrying away the titel in the process, it seems only right that we should again be the torch-bearers and take the next progressive step in… Continue

All right. In 3 days we hit the Albuquerque city limits for a show with AMP Concerts at The Source. I'll be opening for one of my favorite songwriters on the planet, Susan Gibson

MORE IMPORTANTLY...I am trying to plan out my chile fixes...maybe perhaps if I could just get it injected in two alternating streams of red/green/red/green...that might serve me best. But I… Continue

I was recently voted best electronic act and best drummer in Albuquerque, and my band, Vertigo Venus, garnered Best punk band. I especially like the fact that the Alibi makes me sound like only a marketing guy by the time they get to Best drummer; never mind the fact that I played over 100 shows last year with Diverje and Vertigo Venus combined, or that I work my ass off for what I do... nah, that doesn't matter. They also mention that my music makes you think you're in a "Bush re-education… Continue

I was honored to be asked to take the pictures for the next CD for Grupo Nueva Creacion.
I am not sure which pictures they are going to use, but it was fun shooting it. We went to the Hispanic Cultural Center for the shoot. It was real windy and I was unable to use the umbrellas as I had expected, so I had to do with what I could.…
