New Mexico’s own Max Gomez will return to play a concert in Los Alamos in what is becoming an annual event for the singer-songwriter from Taos.
Gomez has won many fans on the Hill and has drawn a full house each of the last three years he has played here.
This year’s show is Saturday, March 10 at Fuller Lodge. Doors open at 6 p.m., Gomez takes the stage at 7:30 p.m. and beer and wine will be available from Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op. Light meals also will be available.
The concert is being produced by Live In Los Alamos, a concert production company run by LAHS teacher Jonathan Lathrop that also has produced shows by Sean Rowe and The Harmaleighs, and most recently, Slaid Cleaves.
Gomez will arrive in Los Alamos in support of his sophomore album, Me and Joe, which earned a three and a half star rating from Rolling Stone magazine.
The article accompanying that rating notes that Gomez’s sound, “arrives at the halfway point between the tender folk balladry of Kris Kristofferson and the pop melodicism of Coldplay’s Chris Martin.”
Gomez’s talent has taken him on a European tour and won him invitations to AmericanaFest and SXSW and to play with some of the industry’s most respected artists, including Buddy Miller, John Hiatt, Shawn Mullins and Patti Griffin.
Tickets are $15 ($20 at the door) and can be purchased at holdmyticket.com or Los Alamos Schools Credit Union (for those wishing to avoid a service fee). Don’t delay as previous shows have sold out early.
