Back to ba­sics: Big Head Todd and the Monsters

Pasatiempo - - Random Acts -

Though more than two decades have elapsed since Big Head Todd and the Monsters re­leased its plat­inum-cer­ti­fied al­bum Sis­ter Sweetly, the rock band from Colorado is still go­ing strong. Its song “Blue Sky” re­ceived lots of ex­po­sure after be­ing picked up as the theme song for Hil­lary Clin­ton’s 2008 pres­i­den­tial cam­paign. A few years after that, BHTM put out a well-re­ceived trib­ute al­bum hon­or­ing blues pi­o­neer Robert John­son. Now the quar­tet is tour­ing in support of 2014’s Black Bee­hive, a back-to-ba­sics col­lec­tion of rock and blues orig­i­nals. The band plays the Len­sic Per­form­ing Arts Cen­ter (211 W. San Francisco St.) at 7:30 p.m., Tues­day, Jan. 27. Tick­ets, $30 to $42, are avail­able by call­ing 505-988-1234 or vis­it­ing www.tick­etssantafe.org.
