In Brief: Legal Tender's last gasp; Primus 3D; Saving Damsels nominated for Native America Music Award; STATS house DJ competition

Lamy's favorite hangout, the Legal Tender, is at risk of going the way of the railroad. As reported by the Santa Fe New Mexican, the saloon may be forced to shut its doors at the end of the month. The closure will not be the result of a lack of business, but actually due to so much success that the venue cannot afford to downsize its operation, as reportedly wished by the Lamy Railroad and History Museum which shares the space. Local regulars are up in arms and have already launched an online petition as well as a letter-writing campaign. Here's an example penned by a doctor (rather hastily, it seems) who says his nearly 80-year-old patient benefits from dancing at the venue.

Heath Concerts brings odd-rock legends Primus to the Santa Fe Convention Center on May 18. The band promises a psychedelic show, complete with 3D visuals and "uber schmancy surround sound." Buy tickets here.

Albuquerque Native soul rock band Saving Damsels is up for a Native America Music Award (NAMA), for their second album, Find My Way. Not to be confused with the New Mexico Music Awards (the NMMA, happening next week), the prestigious awards ceremony takes place May 10 at the Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel, in Niagara Falls, New York.

Check out Stats on Friday night for the chance to vote on their new house DJ. Along with the Ozomatli after-party two weeks back, the event is another effort by the venue to amp up their entertainment offerings.

That's all for now. Email music news and tips to music@sfreporter.com
