Merican’ Slang
Jun 26 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Something about brass and woodwind instruments that makes every ‘Merican Slang show seem like a backstage pass to Jazz Fest in New Orleans. ‘Shake your ass’ music does the band justice.

Hakim Bellamy, Local IQ, “Albuquerque’s Intelligent Alternative

A funk band- Super Group, Merican Slang began as a side project of members of several Albuquerque acts who came together to form a band with a truly Merican, Democratic, approach to music making. The result is a unique sound that blends Merican Funk, with Merican Southern Rock! Merican Slang has shared the stage with artists Cody ChessnuTT (The Roots), Richard Howell (Carlos Santana), and Frank Hannon (Tesla).

Tria Prima @ The Spirit Room
Sep 10 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

franco campanelloEnjoy 2 hours of Jazz with Franco Campanello’s newest concoction of musical goodness, “Tria Prima”.  That’s right, if you attended the Spirit Room open mic nights on Wednesday’s, (Pre-Pandemic) you most likely would have seen Franco sitting in with someone or going solo with his guitar.  BTW, this guy can play keyboard, guitar, sing and sling a mean cocktail.  Yup, he’s sometimes behind the bar, but these two Friday afternoon’s, he will once again be gracing our stage.  This trio has no electronic press kit or online presence, so we figured we should see what the heck “Tria Prima” means.  I thought it meant “Prime Trio”, which would make sense to me, but here’s what I found on the interwebs:

Tria Prima: According to the Alchemy of Paracelsus, the three substances of SALT, SULPHUR, and MERCURY that make up all things. The Tria Prima are chemical substances that have similar properties to the three celestials, or archetypal, elements that flow out from the Mind of God into creation. These forces, or hypostatical principles, correspond to divine trinities and triads found in religions and mysticism; for example, in Christianity the triad is the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.

The celestial elements comprise the four elements of the lower world, so that the Tria Prima is the basis for both macrocosm and microcosm. Paracelsus said:

You should know that all seven metals originate from three materials, namely from mercury, Sulphur, and salt, though with different colors. Therefore, Hermes has said not incorrectly that all seven metals are born and composed from three substances, similarly also the tinctures and philosopher’s stone. . . But that it be rightly understood what the three different substances are that he calls spirit, soul and body, you should know that they mean no other than the three principia, that is, mercury, Sulphur, and salt, out of which all seven metals originate. Mercury is the spirit, Sulphur is the soul, salt the body.

The most important of the celestial elements is salt, which is born in the heating of fire and seawater. Its powers as a preservative, and thus a powerful force for the attainment of immortality, make it important to alchemical processes. Salt is passive/feminine and represents substance, Earth, and the body.

Sulphur is active/masculine, a transforming essence. It is associated with the SUN and the energy of nature.

Mercury is neutral and volatile, the agent of transformation. Its contradictory properties enable it to participate in all states of matter. It is liquid at room temperature and can dissolve GOLD. When heated it forms both white powder (highly poisonous) and red crystals (therapeutic).

Paracelsus held that disease arises from imbalances among the Tria Prima. For example, an excess of Sulphur would cause fever and plague, while an imbalance would cause gout.

Stephen Ashbrook
Sep 23 @ 9:00 pm – Sep 24 @ 12:00 am

Tickets are on sale at the door beginning at 9 pm.

Please join us for a night of music with Stephen Ashbrook & his band! A local favorite. Be sure to arrive early we are always packed when Stephen visits!

stephen ashbrook album artWest Coast singer/songwriter Stephen Ashbrook had access to only two records growing up (Simon & Garfunkel’s Bridge Over Troubled Water and Jesus Christ Superstar), both of which were enticing enough to send the California native on a hunt to his local library to expand his musical horizons.

Citing heroes as diverse as John Steinbeck, the Rolling Stones, and Winston Churchill, Ashbrook honed his chops amidst the fertile late-’90s Tempe, Arizona alt-rock scene, where he took home The Phoenix Tribune’s Best Acoustic Performer title in both 1998 and 2000; he even got to play for President William Jefferson Clinton, at the request of the White House.

Known for his rich baritone, smooth falsetto, and penchant for open-road heartland folk-rock in the vein of Tom Petty, the Wallflowers, and Joe Henry, he released an EP, About Last Night, in 1993, followed by a full-length eponymous studio album with his band Satellite in 1995.

His solo debut, the critically acclaimed Navigator, arrived in 1998, with Drive and American B-Sides, the latter of which featured members of the Gin Blossoms, the Pistoleros, and Dead Hot Workshop, arriving in 2001 and 2002, respectively.

Ashbrook relocated to Portland, Oregon after the arrival of the latter, releasing his first live collection, Double Live @ Long Wong’s, in 2004, and White Balloons, his sixth studio album, in 2008.
