Funhouse band: Lindy Vi­sion

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

If the folks at Meow Wolf ever select an of­fi­cial band for House of Eternal

Re­turn, the sur­real city in­side of a dream in­side of an old bowl­ing al­ley, surely Lindy Vi­sion should be among the fi­nal con­tes­tants. The three sis­ters from Al­bu­querque — Dorothy, Natasha, and Carla Cuylear — are part Temp­ta­tions and part Joy Divi­sion, hard-edged New Wave with a strain of des­o­late desert angst. They are time­less yet in­no­va­tive in their lyrics and in­stru­men­ta­tion. Their gritty, Day-Glo videos are sprin­kled with such New Mex­ico im­agery as the fa­cade of an or­di­nary adobe house or moun­tains in the back­ground, si­mul­ta­ne­ously fa­mil­iar and jar­ring when jux­ta­posed with mu­sic that could have come from an un­der­ground Man­hat­tan club circa 1980. Lindy Vi­sion plays in its mother­ship at the Meow Wolf Arts Com­plex (1352 Ru­fina Cir­cle; 505-780-4458) at 9:30 p.m. on Fri­day, April 29, with a plethora of spe­cial guests, in­clud­ing Sum­mon, Thieves & Gyp­sys, Red Light Cam­eras, and Suede School, along with live art by James Mon­toya, Reyes Padilla, and Chan­tal Troup. Tick­ets to the twenty-one-and-over show are $5 at the door or in ad­vance at www.hold­myt­icket.com.
