Such a great blues voice and such charisma.  Here’s a damn good tribute by Melissa Etheridge and Joss Stone.  I’ve not seen/heard anything by Joss that didn’t remind me of Janis.  She and Melissa together is just over the fuckin’ top..    

Kalya Scintilla played Saturday night at the Startribe music festival on Taos Mesa – and his show was excellent!  The whole Startribe experience was an ideal introduction, for me, to the local scene.  Playing music outdoors here is complicated by our infamous wind (especially out on the mesa!), but I thought the sound system was up to the task.  We were on our feet wigglin’ for nearly all of Scintilla’s set. I was pleased to see so many splendid dancers live in the community, and thrilled by all the fire dancing and poi! There was… Read Article →

In addition to the Flux Pavilion makeup show (probably in December), Albuquerque’s Historic El Rey Theater will host a show by Borgore on New Year’s Eve and a heavy heavy must-see show by DJ Carnage on January 15th. Both shows will likely sell out, so get your tickets while you can! And don’t forget we have Getter here at Gravity Nightclub on November 7th! This is an awesome town for electronic music, and it just keeps getting better and better!  

Flux Pavilion and Loudpvck were stranded by flooding in Dallas and could not make the Albuquerque show on Friday night. Diskord and Nghtmre played extra-long sets, though, and we all get to go back and see Flux and Loudpvck later in the season. Possibly in December when their tour is wrapping up. There’s even a chance that show will feature different opening acts so, in a way, we got two shows for the price of one! Not to discount the evening, though, as we totally enjoyed Nghtmre’s show! There seemed to be a few glitches… Read Article →

Goodness. I have wanted a Digitech 2112 for twenty years, and now I finally have one! I am totally jazzed! Rack mount Digitech processors were a must-have for the blues rock and metal music I grew up on, though I think the 2112 was actually introduced in the 90s. I like the way the model number could be a reference to the great Rush album! Now that I’m taking lessons and becoming more serious about learning and practicing, I’m relying less on multiple effects pedals to “play for me” – and focusing solely on playing… Read Article →

In loving memory of the late J.J. Cale, my new “After Midnight” cake features Swiss chocolate, coconut, dark Mexican chocolate and a hint of Indonesian vanilla.    

Yellow Claw plays ABQ tomorrow night!!! Here they are just a few nights ago in Netherlands.  This was probably the last gig before they left Europe for the Albuquerque show…

Here they are in Amsterdam just ten days ago.  They’ll be coming straight from Netherlands to the Albuquerque show on May 14th, then on to Global Dub on the 15th at Red Rocks. Will be a rare and outstanding dance show in the ABQ!! See you there…

Here’s an awesome new streaming music service for EDM-heads (and feets).  The drum & bass feed is outstanding. Drum & Bass feed from Beatgasm

Time brings all things to pass. There are no second chances. There is only this moment, and the next, when everything you want will collide with everything standing in your way. Purpose and meaning are not to be found in the laws of nature. It is our job to create them, as we journey into the vast emptiness of the universe and seek fellowship among the stars. We are the architects of the future. This is our empire.                                 from… Read Article →
