    a deconstructed concert w/ Mobley, Urban Heat, Jonny Jukebox

    In line with pandemic EP pairing Young & Dying in the Occident Supreme (2021) and Cry Havoc! (2022), Mobley’s new worktape bears meditative body movers and sing-alongs. An audio documentary of both soul-stoppers, the 23-track cassette strips back the studio bomp of his big-delivery anthems to the everyday genius of unfettered creativity. Natural, instinctual, immediate, worktape stills with side-A closer “Lost Boys / Occidental Death (sound check recording),” which flutters like an alt-demo for an R&B standard like “Little Wing.” Stageless, PA-less, with each patron given headphones to tune in to multiple live mixes, A Deconstructed Concert merges performer, audience, and collaborators Urban Heat.

    ¡Mujeres Adelante!: A Celebration of Latina Voices w/ Grupo Fantasma, Carrie Rodriguez, Lisa Morales, Her Mana, the Tiarras, DJ EPZ

    Renacimiento – renaissance. LatinATX blooms show by show lately. Reports from Adrian Quesada’s Long Center extravaganza recently describe a near festival of sorts. His former mother ship, Grupo Fantasma – mostly pulled here from the badlands of millennial Laredo – align with the guitarist’s Boleros Psicodélicos in throwing a noche de las señoras. Carrie Rodriguez, Lisa Morales, Emilie Basez, Kate Robberson, the Tiarras, y más front the local Latin orchestra, a powerhouse rhythm and brass juggernaut since día numero uno. Quesada’s Jaguar Sound set at Antone’s first annual blues festival at the Moody Amphitheater this summer prompts something of a no-brainer, perhaps: time for a first annual Grupo Fantasma festival.
