‘Joe Dirt’ a mix that’s gross, fun

Here’s a quick quiz for readers: Do you think Lynyrd Skynyrd is a person? Do you consider croutons vegetables? Do you wear your hair in a mullet, short on the top and sides — possibly spiked — and long in back? Do you still wear acid-washed jeans and sport Def Leppard concert T-shirts?

OM Trio leaves crowd uninspired

If funk grooves are mixed with the intellect of high jazz and a heavy dose of psychedelic color and the whole thing is brought to a boil, the product might be something like OM Trio’s music when it performs original compositions.

Art exhibit displays contrasting styles

The artistic styles of Erika M. Burrows and Marco A. "Tony" Oviedo II could not be much more different, yet the engaged couple make a harmoniously supportive team. Between now and April 30, Burrows and Oviedo will have a series of paintings and drawings titled "A Household of Beauty: A Tale of Trees & Flowers and the Value of Line," on display at Irysh Mac's Coffee House, 110 Yale Blvd. S.E. The exhibit features the contrasting elements of Burrows' botanical-based illustrations and Oviedo's highly linear and meditative images.

Political writer's tactics insulting

Martin Janowski wants to get young people involved and interested in government with the help of his new book of essays, "New Wine, Fresh Skins!" Janowski, who served as New Mexico Republican Sen. Pete Domenici's press secretary, certainly gears his book toward younger people - perhaps too well. The majority of his writing manages to talk down to an audience presumably ignorant of government proceedings, as if explaining to a five-year-old where babies come from.

`Gypsy' dances around bad acting

Musical Theater Southwest's production of "Gypsy" is reminiscent of fast food. It tastes great while you're eating, but when the meal is finished, you're not as satisfied as you hoped you'd be.

Sepultura still has its edge

Back when Metallica ruled the metal underground, a festering sore of a band was lurking in the shadows to take the groundwork laid by the now-mainstream group and twist, jump on and grind it into submission. Sepultura’s music was angrier, faster and more bludgeoning than most bands at the time, and it wouldn’t be long before the group took the mainstream by its throat. By the end of the ’80s, the Brazilian metal gods had come to the forefront of the music scene and made a name for themselves for calling to mind the anguish in the world. And they had a front-row seat to it becuase they grew up in the slums of Belo Horizonte, where poverty and crime was an everyday occurrence.

Band picks up where leaped off

It’s such a relief to hear Todd Lewis’s voice again and know that the Toadies didn’t forget to record a new album. It took Lewis, bassist Lisa Umbarger, drummer Mark Reznicek and guitarist Clark Vogeler, who replaced original guitarist Darrel Herbert, seven years to make a comeback from the exceptional 1994 album Rubberneck, which for hardcore fans is just too long to wait. Luckily for us, the delay was almost worth it, and the new album Hell Below/Stars Above picks up where the previous left off.
