NOB HILL—Oh, I have read the articles and blog posts about Albuquerque being high on the list of quirky towns.  They usually cite examples like Kelly’s Brewpub being in an old gas station.

First of all, it wasn’t a gas station, it was a car dealership.  Kelly’s just decorated it to look…

Burque Music Scene: Joanie Cere

Joanie Cere has one of those voices that when you hear it, you don't forget it.  I wrote about Joanie and her BIG voice back in 2008.  Her voice only seems to get bigger and better with time - you could say time is on her side!
