Silver Triplets of the Rio Hondo

  • with special guests Tarantula Hawk

The PNWs sci-fi roadhouse supergroup makes a stop in Albuquerque. Support from Dakota Hall Scott.

Silver Triplets of the Rio Hondo is a psychedelic Western outfit conceived by William Slater, songwriter & founding member of art-psych heavyweights Grails. Its sound marries sequenced synthesizer/strings, noise collage, & drum programming to a set of barrel-chested crooners, lending the songs of the Triplets an eerie camp that could live as easily on a dilapidated cruise ship as inside a honky tonk bar. Ghost ballads floating about a dystopian waypost. Gene Autry trying to claw his way out of the Tower of Song. Extra-terrestrial highway jazz. Sci-fi roadhouse music for dissociatives.

The trio features the dreamy & toothsome embellishments of Haven Multz Matthews on skins and Christopher Cook wielding guitar leads that alternate between Bakersfield country & avant-noise in quick succession, & the samples dancing in and out of the periphery may leave an audience wondering how a sound at times so massive & strange can still feel somehow intimate.

The event is finished.
