Solas Review

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

The Spirit of Cooperation

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

Church of Beethoven does Brandenburg backwards



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

Hey, that's Papi up on I-40!



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

RIP... Les Paul Dies at 94

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!

"Extra Golden" Nights at the Cooperage



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

Day 1 of the world's only Slam Poet Laureate Program

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

Oh Sweet 505

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. It's going to be fun. You should come.



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

Why didn't I mention all this earlier?

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

Grupo Nueva Creacion



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.…

Willy Porter at the Cooperage, Amazing!

Thanks to the tickets I won here on DCF, my husband and I went to the Willy Porter show last night. It was an amazing show! Willy Porter is an incredible musician, talented, inspiring and funnier than hell! I haven't laughed so hard in years. He made me cry, laugh and just plain sit in awe of his talent.



Michael Chapdelaine opened the show, as usual, he put on an awesome show! We have seen Michael perform several times in the past and have… Continue

My Top 20 Albums of 2008



I recently wrote a column for Local iQ magazine listing my favorite albums or 2008 (excluding jazz and classical).



I want to share it. Obviously, these type of lists say more about the listener than music within, but maybe you'll find something new. There were a handful of artists that didn't make it on my list that I feel a little… Continue

Martini Mike's Hangover Report - "Jumping into 2009 through the Moon Roof" Edition



As the tiptoes of the last house guest’s high heeled boots click clacked across my home... I was gently awakened this morning. I instantly recognize that a 2 a.m. Quesadilla/glass of water combo has saved me from a painful morning. As CNN is quickly changed to Encore Mystery on the Master Suite television, I… Continue

Share the Joy With the African Children's Choir



The African Children’s Choir has been traveling around the world and performing since 1984. They have been featured on American Idol, sung on stage with Sir Paul McCartney at the 2005 Live 8 concert in London, and played venues in every major American city. The group performances are famously poignant and striking whether experienced in New York City or small town Idaho. And now they are coming to Albuquerque to give us the chance to see something extra special while…
