  • All aboard the hellbilly rollercoaster

    Folks can usually anticipate what kind of show they’re in for when they decide to go to a live concert. After all, they’re most likely fans of the band they’re buying tickets for.
    That logic, however, does not apply to a Hank 3 show.
    Shelton Hank Williams aka Hank 3 gave spectators an up-close experience Tuesday night in Albuquerque. He’s no stranger to the Sunshine Theater and seems to play there at least once a year.
    The venue is small and intimate, which can be good or bad, depending on how many people are packed into it. For some shows, it’s standing room only, but for this show, there were a few tables and bar stools scattered about. The stools really came in handy, considering Hank 3 put on a three-hour performance.
    The music preceding the show was a mixed bag, ranging from death metal to two-steppin’ country songs. That should have been an indication of what to expect of the concert.
    It was like being in one of those honkytonks you see in movies. The bar area is separated by Plexiglas walls. Speakers, along with equipment packed the small stage. The crowd was rowdy and the only thing missing was the thick cigarette smoke that tends to choke the air whenever you see them in films.

  • Nomads play Friday at DNCU

    Familiarity can breed a great time when it comes to the Los Alamos rock band Eddy and the Nomads. The band plays at 7 p.m. Friday at Del Norte Credit Union. Sponsors of the Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series are presenting the free concert.
    The Nomads have been playing Los Alamos concerts for about 30 years. Members have come and gone except for Wilfred Romero, a founding member. Eddy Partridge joined a few years later. The band’s name changed to Eddy and the Nomads a few years ago, when they discovered that “Nomads” had way too many listings on the web. Eddy and Wilfred play lead and rhythm guitars. Bob Carmen is the bassist and Ringo Davey is the drummer.

  • Opera Review: 'Arabella' has a few snags

    Richard Strauss’ sixth collaboration with librettist Hugo von Hofmannsthal, “Arabella,” contains all of the lushness one expects to hear from Strauss and has character depth and an enjoyable story, as well.
    The story, about a destitute Count who is trying to marry off his older daughter, has humor in it, but underneath the humor is a thick layer of social commentary.  Although not as popular as some of Strauss’ other operas, “Arabella” is charming and entertaining.

  • Grasshoppers, pecan liquor and Charles Darwin

    Jacqueline Kelly, author of the Newbery Honor Book, “The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate,” returns to Los Alamos to sign her book from 2-3 p.m. Aug. 5 at Otowi Station Bookstore.
    “We’re delighted that Jackie will be here again to introduce a new generation of readers to Calpurnia,” said Ellen Ben-Naim of Otowi Station Bookstore. “Young adults and adults are really captivated by this spunky, ambitious heroine.”
