Today on "The Lisa D Show" we'll be joined in the studio by Mark Alvarado of the Border Roots. Alvarado will play some tunes and talk about upcoming performances fo both his band and general music scene stuff. We love Mark as a guest as his voice is wonderful to listen to and his perspective is insightful and interesting.
Also, we will hear from Rebecca Krasne about a very unique event at James Magee's Hill this Saturday. "In a rare site-specific event, renowned saxophone improvisers John Butcher and Joe McPhee will perform solos in the vast West Texas desert at “The Hill” of James Magee, Saturday, April 17, 3 p.m. "The Hill" in Cornudas is a monumental (yet very personal) work of art, isolated on remote private land 70 miles east of El Paso. Thirty years in the making (and still in progress), “The Hill” is the life work of James Magee. Complex and monumental, The Hill consists of 4 buildings (40 feet long, 20 feet wide and 17 feet in height), three of which house installations by Magee. Crafted of irregularly-cut local shale rock, each building is entered through a majestic iron portal, 8 feet wide and the full height of the building. The Hill sits in a gently rolling landscape with mesmerizing views of snow-capped mountains and limitless West Texas skies.Admission is $75. Reservations are required.
