I started AMP Concerts to expand the musical opportunities in Albuquerque. We specialize in world, folk, acoustic and Americana music, but ultimately present what we think is interesting. We run a monthly acoustic music series at the Windchime Champagne Gallery downtown, as well as regular shows in venues like Puccini's Golden West Saloon and theaters such as the Lobo, KiMo, El Rey and National Hispanic Cultural Center. We also produce ¡Globalquerque! - New Mexico's Annual Celebration of World Music and Culture every September. Check out our web site to see what is going on!

I've made you (along with a number of other musically connected people) an administrator in the Music Lounge group. I figured since I'm not very active, I might as well pass the torch to people who are.

I'll be sure to stop by and say hello next time. I left NHCC around 5:15ish - just as the rain starting really coming down...

Neal - we must have crossed paths on Friday! I had a meeting in the NHCC and walked through the courtyard as two men were setting up for the Hassan Hakmoun show. Too bad there is no way for DCFixers to identify each other from afar...

Thanks for bring such good and varied music to Albuquerque!
