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…

Aaron Lewis' CD Release Party

Tomorrow is the day we've been waiting for! My husband and business partner, local guitarist/composer Aaron Lewis, has finally released his second CD! Space Travel is a great grouping of instrumental guitar music, with a dreamy piano piece at the end of it all. A fitting title as the CD will take you on a journey through space and time. I'm not just biased either! Aaron will be the first to admit that I am one of his harshest critics. I do love his music though. It doesn't hurt that he… Continue

Red Priest on Fire

This weekend I had a chance to attend two very different concerts in New Mexico, one in Santa Fe and the other in Albuquerque. The Albuquerque one, well to be honest, was one I produced for Chamber Music Albuquerque. And although it is sometimes difficult to really focus down on the performance when one has other responsibilities as a producer-presenter, I usually find a way. For the CMA concert it wasn't hard at all.



On Sunday as part of CMA's… Continue

Fiamma Fumana at the Cooperage

I had the pleasure Saturday night of attending an AMP concert at the Cooperage. The performing group was Fiamma Fumana from Italy. There music would be hard to label and that is a good thing. There cd loaded as Pop music and they seemed to have a world music flair. The instrumentation from the group was vocal, accordian, drums, bagpipe and dj. Occasionally the accordian player would play guitar and the bagpipe player would perform on Fife, there was constant wonderful vocal harmonies. The first… Continue

Climbing the charts

My songs are now climbing the charts at Indiemusic.com. Drop in and have a listen its a site of really good independent music. The songs that I have up are space travel in instrumental, and alien abduction in experimental. I have also mailed cds to radio stations in Germany, UK, and NY from requests the past couple of days. The sun keeps shining on Albuquerque.
Peace,

Adventures of the Merch Girl: Hurricane Parties

So...being a New Mexican means the worst I've had to deal with natural disaster-wise is knowing that ditches are deadly (STAY AWAY!) and that dust gets caught in your throat sometimes when it's windy. When the news reports said Hurricane Ike was going to dump a bunch of rain and blow us all around a lot here in Austin, I didn't know what to do. So instead of buying bottled water and granola bars, my buddy Katie and I decided to have a hurricane party. We bought diet Coke and hummus and decided… Continue

Girl Power 2008

With artists like Katy Perry and Charlotte Sometimes busting through the music scene with outrageous styles and controversial lyrics, they're definitely turning some heads - good and bad.

When you hear Katy Perry's name, the automatic response is the "oh that's the 'I Kissed A Girl' chick." Katy has been on the scene much longer. Her first album was released in 2001 under the name Katy Hudson, and years later, her song "Simple" appeared on the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 1 soundtrack… Continue

Walkability - Barelas Style

I’m up too late on a Saturday night (for reasons of insomnia, not fun) and feel too groggy to throw on some clothes and walk a few blocks down the street to the Church of Beethoven this Sunday morning.



So I make my mug of Ohori’s Italian Roast drip coffee, all the while dithering over whether I want to start my day with the New York… Continue

Acids and Basses & Spark_Gap Reviews

On Friday I made it out to Hunab Hookah for a little bit to catch some of The Acids and Basses electro jam, with guest F/M from Santa Fe. Trippy, Ambient and experimental, quite enjoyable to just sit back and listen to. F/M consisted of two technicians, Martin Back and Frank Rolla, a lute, two macbooks and a contraption which I will name the "random paddle", a large standing instrument with many wooden paddles jutting from it, and small motors which randomly would cause a hammer mallet to play… Continue
