Cowboy Junkies Concert Review

Thanks to the Duke City Fix and AMP Concerts, my wife and I were able to attend the Cowboy Junkies show at the Hispanic Cultural Center last night. We arrived at the advertised start time, 7:30, and found our chairs. At first glance our seats, which were extra chairs set up in aisle between upper and lower seating, seemed to leave a little to be desired. However, almost immediately I realized these were going to be great seats...… Continue

Morning Fix: GLAMBERT!

  • For of you who don't give two hoots about Kris Allen ... Adam Lambert is coming to Albuquerque on August 3rd. That's right, he of the heavy eyeliner and gravity-defying hair will be at the Sunshine Theater this summer. And in other music news, Pat Benatar herself will be at the…

Next Frontier: Albuquerque

Duke City locals know that use of the words “Frontier” and “Albuquerque” in a sentence means one thing. For the policy wonks at the Brookings Institution, these words couple together in a way that has nothing to do with cinnamon rolls, John Wayne, or the rug room.

Last… Continue

Hug a Honeybee, Albuquerque. It's Pollinator Week!

Whether you're a chile farmer or chile lover... Whether you're a backyard gardener or a local fruit connoiseur, this week is for you. It's time to go hug a honeybee for National Pollinator Week.

Councilor O'Malley donned a bee veil last week to learn about local beekeeping efforts and came on down to the hives I manage as a volunteer for… Continue

Less Gas, More Ass


The conversation went like this:

"What do you want to do this weekend? Let's go take some pictures."

"Um, okay, where?"

(Flipping through the Alibi...)

"Oh, wow, the first New Mexican World Naked Bike Ride is happening tomorrow in Santa Fe.… Continue

The Sunday Poem.... Sirena Rayes' "Esperanza Drive"

Sirena Rayes is the 18 years old daughter of the poet featured last week, Mitch Rayes. She is the only one in her family who was born in Albuquerque, and is very happy to hold the first generation slot. Writers on the other hand, show up in her family repeatedly from generation to generation. Luckily that gene made it to Albuquerque, and Sirena is… Continue

Recovery Cat 6.19.2010

They all had gone out on that stream, bearing the sword, and often the torch, messengers of the might within the land, bearers of a spark from the sacred fire. Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness (1899/1902), part 1.…

“The Sloughing Off of Old Ways”: On Lisa Gill’s “The Relenting”

On the evening of Friday, June 11th, 516 Arts presented a staged reading of Lisa Gill’s “The Relenting: A Play of Sorts,” with Gill and Kevin R. Elder, to celebrate its publication by New Rivers Press. There could’ve been something of the carnivalesque side show atmosphere with a snake song mix by DJ Mitch Rayes, music by th3 e1elemental orke5stra, and a live rattler from Old Town’s Rattlesnake Museum. But local poets turned out in droves, attesting… Continue

How to Backtalk to Your Dad this Father's Day (Lullabies pt.2)

One of my friends, Mitch Rayes, last week's Sunday Poem Feature, tells this story: "My dad was yelling at me for something or other and got right up in my face, finally asking, 'Do you understand?' And then from the new up-close vantage point, I answered, 'Yeah, Big Nose.'" The clarity of a child's perspective is lovely. As is the curiosity. And the intimacy of family brings out the… Continue

What Single Word Best Describes Your Father?

If Kevin R. Elder of Tricklock asked you what single word best describes your father, what would you say? I'd say, "Eccentric." And then follow-up to explain how there is a crystal vase on my father's bureau that is filled with 1000s of plastic stir sticks collected from MacDonalds one cup-of-coffee-at-a-time. Perhaps all fathers have their quirks and rituals. This is a good weekend for contemplating the role of fathers... and that's exactly what… Continue

An Artist's Hard Lesson Learned

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to sign a consignment agreement with a local frame shop here in Albuquerque. This shop had a beautiful frame that complemented my acrylic paintings on canvas. The owners, a husband and wife team, offered to frame my work, using this as my signature frame and display my work for sale, taking a 50% commission. We had a very positive working relationship for a couple of years.

Then, suddenly, the couple separated and the wife was forced to sell the… Continue

An Evening With Josh Ritter

The Venue

First off, in my opinion, the National Hispanic Cultural Center is a treasure. This night specifically, the Albuquerque Journal Theater was a wonderful intimate space to experience live music. Thanks to Neal Copperman, AMP Concerts… Continue

Quit being a pest!

It felt good to get my silverleaf nightshade complaints out a couple of posts ago. Maybe it's the hot weather. I blinked and missed spring. Maybe it's the tribulations of trying to restart a neglected yard. But it seems that I have a lot of pesty problems this year.


I don't generally have an issue with ants. They're fine by me. Except when they bite and leave welts every time I step out onto my back patio. I have to… Continue
