  • ‘Revenant’ leads Oscar nominations with 12

    NEW YORK (AP) — The brutal frontier saga “The Revenant” landed a leading 12 nominations for the 88th annual Academy Awards.

    The strong showing Thursday for “The Revenant,” including a best actor nod for Leonardo DiCaprio and best supporting actor for Tom Hardy, follows its win at the Golden Globes. It sets up director Alejandro Inarritu for a possible back-to-back win following his sweep for best picture, director and screenplay for “Birdman” last year.

    “We gave it our all on this film and this appreciation from the Academy means a lot to me and my colleagues who made it possible,” said Inarritu in a statement. “Champagne and mezcal will run tonight!”

    George Miller’s post-apocalyptic sequel “Mad Max: Fury Road” followed with 10 nominations, including best picture and best director for Miller. Ridley Scott’s sci-fi epic “The Martian” landed seven nominations, including best picture and best actor for Matt Damon, but, surprisingly, no best director nod for Scott.

  • Local bands in the spotlight

    A pair of local bands will headline Friday’s Gordon’s Summer Concert Series.
    The bands, DK and the Affordables and Eddy and the Nomads, will split time at the Summer Concert Series.
    Friday’s concert, a free program sponsored by Los Alamos County, is the final Summer Concert of 2015. It will be at Ashley Pond starting at 7 p.m.
    DK and the Affordables was founded by DK Warner, a do-it-all performer with many influences spanning rockabilly, but Warner said one of his main influences is Jim Bowie, a Buddhist banjo master from Oklahoma.
    Among the lineup for the Affordables are keyboardist Aaron Anderson, bassist Rob Heineman and saxophone player Quinn Marksteiner.
    A classic rock band, Eddy and the Nomads are staples of the concert series, having played numerous shows there over the 26-year history of the series.
    This year’s series started in early May as part of the county’s Kite Festival. Among this year’s highlights were Satisfaction, a Rolling Stones tribute band, and the Red Elvises.
    The Summer Concert Series is coordinated by Russ Gordon. For information on the series, visit gordonssummerconcerts.com.

  • Seeing Red

    One of the most popular bands in Los Alamos County, the Red Elvises, entertained the crowd at the Relay for Life event Friday night at Ashley Pond.

  • Carothers on his way to country music success

    It has been a banner year for former Los Alamos resident James Carothers and his family.
    After landing a booking agent in Nashville, Tennessee, in January, he is one step closer to becoming a bona fide country music artist.
    Carrie Moore-Reed from Third Coast Talent is his agent, while his wife, Jill, has been assisting with booking venues for James.
    “It’s an uphill battle for any artist,” Jill Carothers said.
    James opens for bands in the Nashville area in country-themed bars and clubs. A possible gig in Washington state is in the works, but has not been finalized.
    In April, he played a Battle of the Bands at The Crazy Bull in Macon, Georgia. That performance is available on YouTube. He also plays at the Bluebird Café in Nashville.
    James scored a full-time gig at the start of the summer when he walked into the George Jones Museum and Entertainment Complex.
    The four-story location houses a museum, bar and restaurant, and an additional rooftop terrace bar that over looks the Cumberland River and the Tennessee Titans football stadium.
    The facility makes its own moonshine on the premises, as well.
    James first heard of an opening through one of his current band members who thought he would be a good fit for the gig.
