Burque Music Scene: ¡Revìva!

It seems fitting that the day after Bob Marley's birthday and after seeing them open for the Wailers at the Sunshine Theater last night, I should feature ¡Revìva! today.

From their Facebook page: Consisting of six members; Glenn “Buddha” Benavidez (Bass), Cody Jones (Percussion), Danny “The Harp” Garcia (Keys/Harmonica), Ragon Espinosa (Drums), Jerel Garcia…

Way Back Wednesday!

Way back when I first started blogging on DCF, it took a while to find my writing "voice."  There was one particular post that kind of went through the roof with comments.  Let's just say that I, Adelita, was around long before our beloved…

Talk about a room with a view!

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…

Burque Music Scene: Memphis P. Tails

It's no secret that I am a major blueshead.  When I want to hear some scorching, in-your-face, screaming blues guitar, I go listen to the Memphis P. Tails.  Many members of this band have come and gone, but the mainstay has always been guitarist Darin Goldston.  This is one hard working band.  Whether playing blues festivals or Molly's up in Tijeras, they never…

Burque Music Scene: The Shakers

My friend Neat Pete and I used to love to go out dancing all the time, way back in the 80s.  It was our weekend ritual to seek out the best and most danceable bands in town.   The Shakers fit the bill.  They were one of the most popular new wave bands in Albuquerque at the time.  We would get out on the dance floor and hop around in our best Guess jeans and new wave dance…
