ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Willam was made to be on the stage or in front of the camera – and he knows it.
From appearing in various TV shows to breaking through as a contestant on the reality competition series “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” he has closely plotted out his plan to rule the airwaves.
I caught up with Willam while he was shooting a video audition for an MTV series, and we talked about his future and his singing career.
“Everything for me is day-to-day,” he says. “I don’t know where I’m going until I get there. Eventually, I want to host a TV show that deals with entertainment.”
Aside from a film and TV career, Willam has joined forces with Detox and Vicky Vox to form the group DWV. The trio has found success with its viral videos, which have been seen by millions of viewers. DWV will perform at Sidewinders on Jan. 31.
The women in the Seattle-based indie rock band La Luz are on a comeback tour. Back in November, the band was on tour with Of Montreal when its van was hit by a big truck. They lost all their equipment and suffered some injuries. Now, they are getting back into the groove of touring and making music.
If you love reggae, then you have two chances to see some in Albuquerque. Passafire will perform with Ballyhoo! tonight at Envy. The band is touring in support of its No. 1 album, “Vines.” Meanwhile, San Diego-based Tribal Seeds will perform on Thursday, Jan. 30 at Sunshine Theater.
Of course, we also have some music from some mainstays in the music industry. Phil Anselmo, yes of Pantera fame, is back making music with his new band The Illegals, and they will perform on Saturday, Jan. 25 at Launchpad. Also, Skinny Puppy will perform at Sunshine Theater on Tuesday, Jan. 28.
