"Movin' to the beat"

Lost Lingo is a five-piece band that draws influences from a variety of sources including jam bands, jazz, Afrobeat and West African drumming as well as funk, rock, hip-hop and pop. . “We try to create a show that is well-structured but also allows us to improvise freely,” drummer Lane Glover said. Founded in 2003, the group was barely two-years-old when it was invited to open for Jason Mraz at the University of New Mexico’s Popejoy Hall in Albuquerque. “No local band had played there in over 20 years,” Glover said. Since then Lost Lingo has become a regular on the Albuquerque club circuit with a recent sold-out CD release party at the Launchpad. This will be the band’s first Taos appearance.

There is a $5 cover charge for adults 21 and over with ID. For more information call (575) 751-9600 - Taos News


"Outpost Gives Teen Musicians Their Own Night."

Unknown bands trying to get the word out about their music are usually forced to play in garages and endless streams of friends' parties.
But things are looking up.
Like CBGB's in New York City, The 9:30 Club in Washington, D.C., and The Gold Dollar in Detroit, The Outpost Performance Space offers Roust the House, an opportunity for Albuquerque's young talent to perform.
Roust the House is a monthly event at Outpost wherein teenage bands or artists are invited to perform at the relatively large venue which doubles as an art gallery. At the March 12 Roust the House, three such bands performed: the deft Academy Funk Ensemble, pop-punkers The Recline, and power-pop quartet Lost Lingo.
The Funk Ensemble, brandishing a large horn section and a nimble guitarist, took the stage first. Conducted by John Truitt, they resemble James Brown jamming with Parliament— except, you know, white. Their passionate cover of Stevie Wonder's "All In Love is Fair" was easily one of the highlights of the evening's performances.
Following the Funk Ensemble was The Recline, who, in the tradition of The Clash and Green Day, brought a rollicking brand of pop-influenced punk rock. Searing with youthful energy, The Recline balanced a love of melody with some brash D.C. hard-core influences a la Minor Threat or Government Issue.
Last to take the stage was Lost Lingo, who dished out a rousing set of melodic acoustic rock. With an upbeat pop backdrop, vocalists/guitarists Javier Ortega and Aaron Stuedli weaved intricate harmonies that find a comfy space between The Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel.
Unlike many establishments that support young bands and artists, Outpost is by no means in disrepair. Between the lavish red curtain and the extravagant nature of the décor, Outpost gives a professional air to what some might consider an amateur endeavor.
Roust the House, contrary to many other mediums for youth performances, draws quite a crowd. In fact, upon arriving at Outpost, I found parking so sparse, I had to engineer a parking space of my own. While many band-members' parents were certainly in attendance, most of the audience was comprised of other high school-age kids looking for a good time on a Friday night.
Being ardently smoke- and alcohol-free, Roust the House presents an alternative to the party scene. It's a friendly atmosphere for new performers, who all seem to know each other, with a warm welcome and excited cheering for each band. Patrons can either sit in folding chairs or make good use of their hips on the dance floor in front of the stage.
"Outpost is great," says Sean Fanning, pianist for the Academy Funk Ensemble and participant in the Outpost's Songwriters' Open Mic. "It offers a variety of music and a warm crowd as well."
Roust the House is open to all teen performers. Those interested can contact Outpost founder Tom Guralnick (who bears a striking resemblance to Elvis Costello) at 268-0044. - Albuquerque Journal
