          Instrumental music is all about ambiance. Without words, meaning has to be built through sound alone. The large number of choices available through technology creates a challenge: How does one choose wisely and not overload the songs?

Patterson Hood once again contributes the majority of the album's songs, but Shonna Tucker and Mike Cooley check in with strong, evocative songs. None is better than Cooley's "Birthday Boy," on which he…

        At least six bulldogs have been stolen locally during the month of April
          
            by Jim Nintzel
          
          
          Nicole Schwartz didn't think twice about taking her English bulldog, Kobe, along for the ride as she made a quick trip to pick up some takeout at P.F. Chang's. Since Schwartz got Kobe in early February, the puppy had been her constant companion. He'd join her for drinks on the patio at Hotel Congress and chew up maps on road trips to the beach. "He slept with me every single night," Schwartz says. "A total cuddler. He went everywhere with…

        Matt Cotten captures the joys and horrors of children's books
          
            by Margaret Regan
          
          
          Matt Cotten is best known around town as a co-founder of Tucson Puppet Works, a puppeteer extraordinaire who helped usher in a new era of puppetry in the Old Pueblo. He is also a compassionate teacher who spends the autumnal months helping the bereaved make giant puppet heads of their late loved ones to wear in the annual All Souls Procession. And Cotten himself has participated in the masking transformation. He's honored his late father and grandmother by wearing puppet…

            by Gene Armstrong
          
          
          THE AVETT BROTHERS, TRUTH AND SALVAGE CO. RIALTO THEATRE Friday, April 23 The Avett Brothers play bluegrass and country as if it were punk-rock chamber music. During an almost-two-hour concert last Friday night at the Rialto Theatre, they displayed a ferocious performance aesthetic that was—as I have been assured by repeat concertgoers—business as usual for this increasingly popular North Carolina band. Led by Seth and Scott Avett—who between them play guitar, piano, banjo and drums—the band is a quintet for…

        A new group brings new life to an old-school form of theater
          
            by Sherilyn Forrester
          
          
          Something old, something new, something borrowed, something ... pretty cool. This is no bride's checklist. It's a spot-on description of Old Time Radio Theatre, a fairly new addition to the impressive variety of theatrical offerings which abound in our town. Hosted by Beowulf Alley Theatre Company, the group has been shepherded by Sheldon Metz, who took the idea to the Beowulf Alley folks last fall. Metz would "borrow" authentic radio scripts and develop a company to bring these classic scripts…

        Legalize Marijuana, Because God Says So; Legalizing Drugs Leads to Lower Drug-Use Rates
          
          
          Legalize Marijuana, Because God Says So Millions of North Americans are hoping California re-legalizes the relatively safe, God-given plant cannabis (marijuana). Tom Danehy (April 1) likes to lump cannabis in with "drugs," but upon observation, many citizens notice it's a plant. Plant, as in Christ God Our Father, The Ecologician, indicates He created all the seed-bearing plants, saying they are all good, on literally the very first page of the Bible (Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30). It's time to stop caging…

        Chris Hillman, former member of the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers, headlines the all-free Tucson Folk Festival
          
            by Dave Irwin
          
          
          When Chris Hillman, now 65, plays at the 25th annual Tucson Folk Festival, he'll have come full circle, back to the acoustic music of his youth. Hillman helped create the genre of country rock, giving rise to bands from the Eagles to Alabama. Along the way, he hung out with the Beatles, Bob Dylan, Gram Parsons and many others. In 1964, Chris Hillman was a handsome mandolin prodigy who had been playing professional bluegrass gigs since he was 17. He…

        by Jimmy Boegle
          
          
          So here's the situation in Southern Arizona. The Arizona Legislature approves, and Gov. Jan Brewer signs into law, Senate Bill 1070, which was primarily pushed by state Sen. Russell Pearce, who is a racist (or at least someone comfortable with throwing terms like "wetback" around). This all happened even though SB 1070 is blatantly unconstitutional (equal protection, due process, etc.) and may just cause an entire segment of Arizonans (the "not white" segment) to fear having anything to do with…

        The meat at Bob's Steak and Chop House is ridiculously good—and ridiculously expensive

          If you're the sort of person who balks at forking over $32.95 for a steak dinner (albeit a great steak dinner), you may want to skip this review—because $32.95 is the least you'll get away with paying at Bob's Steak and Chop House at the Omni Tucson National Resort. That's the cost of a 12-ounce prime ribeye steak. Should your tastes be more along the lines of, say, a monster 28-ounce prime porterhouse, the tab will run you $58.95. Your…

          May is National Preservation Month, and according to the National Trust for Historic Preservation, the focus this year is: "Old is the new green." Supporters of the Mission Gardens on South Grande Avenue believe the proposed project is a perfect example of that theme. "What's more green than involving and educating the community on the history of agriculture in the Tucson basin?" asks Diana Hadley, a member of Friends of Tucson's Birthplace. For centuries, different peoples irrigated fields near the…

The man was nearly killed on March 21, 2008, by a drunk and drugged driver who careened into his motorcycle at more than 100 mph. Today, standing behind the podium at the UA's James E. Rogers College of Law, he recounts his long recovery and the mental toll on his family. His grim story sums up this panel discussion honoring National…

        Will the murder of a respected Cochise County rancher change anything on our border?

          A little more than a month has passed since the death of Cochise County rancher Rob Krentz, and the emotion generated by his murder, the pure shock of it, has ignited a bonfire that still burns across Arizona's borderlands—and all the way to Washington, D.C. Now everyone is demanding troops. Now, with Gov. Jan Brewer's signature on a tough new illegal-immigration law, the nation is embroiled in a loud debate about racial profiling. Now everyone has a multi-point plan for…

        Don't let the professorial, romanticized tone dissuade you: 'Reflections in Place' packs power
          
            by Christine Wald-Hopkins
          
          
          Truth be told, two pages into this new book on the lives of contemporary Navajo women, I was about to send it back to Tucson Weekly headquarters to be swapped out for a new assignment: It was too arcane, too professorial. "Indian survivance," "prevalent discourse" and "Foucault" might not grab a whole lot of reader traffic between Tom Danehy and the Personals. Ten pages later, even after a switch in tone and style, it was still headed back: too romanticized,…

        by Eric Swedlund
          
          
          Kairos, the second album from White Hinterland, is a stripped-down, atmospheric record with up-front, bright vocals. For vocalist Casey Dienel and producer/multi-instrumentalist Shawn Creeden, it's an effective combination, and ultimately a bold one, for the fact that most like-minded acts bury the vocals. Musically, Kairos makes much out of the slow, drip-drip beat of trip-hop and a light touch of some Aphex Twin-like skittery percussion. Vocally, it's a showcase sort of an album: Dienel's singing is full and commanding. The…
