LIVE IN LOS ALAMOS NEWS
New Mexico’s own Max Gomez makes his fifth annual visit up The Hill Dec. 29 to bring his folk-Americana to the good people of Los Alamos. Gomez has won a loyal following among locals with his heartfelt lyrics, unorthodox finger-picking on the guitar, and willingness to recruit others to entertain his followers in town. He will once again be backed by some of the finest musicians in New Mexico and will bring a rising talent who he works with in his new base of Los Angeles, Leslie Stevens.
Gomez promises to roll out some of his new material while intermixing plenty of the tunes his audience has come to love over the years. A few tunes will be done with Leslie Stevens, whose songwriting captures elements of pure county and some more unorthodox approaches. Stevens will also be entertaining the crowd with her own work before Gomez takes the stage.
Music will begin at 7:30 p.m., though dinner from Muy Salsas and beer and wine from Bathtub Row will be available when doors open at 6:30 p.m. Max’s shows have sold out about a week in advance the past three years and a third of all tickets have already sold, so interested parties are encouraged to purchase tickets early. They are available for $25 at Los Alamos Schools Credit Union (cash or check only), or on line at liveinlosalamos.comfor $28.50.
