Music & film: Dave Hause, Goo Goo Dolls, Salsa Fiesta, ¡Cine Magnífico! on tap

Dave Hause is looking to provide balance on his current tour with Tiger Army.

With a few albums under his belt, he’s going to play some old and new tracks.

“There are songs that people are familiar with, and we haven’t pushed those songs in the set for a while,” he says. “But they fit well. These are songs from all different moments in my life.”

Hause is a songwriter, now based in California, who is touring in support of his album “Bury Me in Philly.”

On the album, Hause worked with his younger brother, Tim, who helped bring a fresh perspective to the recordings.

“I’ve never had a musical soul mate, but during this process I realized it’s my brother,” Hause says. “Who I think of as this cute, cuddly infant is now this grown man who is really talented and focused, and he’s not drinking and partying his way through life the way that I was at that age. It’s really cool.”

Hause will perform on Saturday, Sept. 9, at Sunshine Theater.

The summer of ’90s nostalgia continues. The Grammy-nominated band Goo Goo Dolls will perform on Sunday, Sept. 10, at Sandia Casino Amphitheater. I got a chance to talk with Robby Takac about the band’s 30-year career and where the musicians are headed next.

Calling all salsa lovers: the city of Albuquerque is hosting the annual Old Town Salsa Fiesta on Saturday, Sept. 9. Staff writer Rozanna M. Martinez has the details on the music and food.

This year’s ¡Cine Magnífico! will showcase some of the best films from across Latin America, as well as a block dedicated to New Mexico filmmakers. The festival begins on Thursday, Sept. 14.
