UPDATE: The paid preview on 11/19 is SOLD OUT. Sorry. Come see us this week, or over the run!
I will be drumming in a stage production of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" beginning Thursday the 20th @ The Vortex. My band, Vertigo Venus, will be the Angry Inch. If you've seen the film, you'll love getting to hear this music live - this show is hilarious, rocking, and really fun. We're going for a whole month, and we've been working our asses off to make this thing… Continue

What a wild unexpected ride it's been! After five years as a local blogger including four at the helm of Duke City Fix, I'm retiring from blogging and officially turning over management of this site to Sophie Martin who's been running things on a day-to-day level for several months now... and swimmingly so.
UPDATE 3/20/2011: Sophie has moved onto other… Continue

Fear not, Burquenos, if you support gay marriage you don't have to stop eating Frontier rolls.
It all started with Jim Baca writing that the owners of Frontier
and Golden Pride were on the list of Prop 8 donors. (He later retracted the comments, see below)
Duke City Fix freaked out
that the gay marriage ban opposers at… Continue

So, I haven't been gone for long, but holy crap, I am so excited to be coming back to Albuquerque for ten days. (Yes, yes, I moved. Personal reasons, blah blah blah. I've spent the last 12 years trying to live in Abq and periodically getting booted out of the city for one reason or another.)
But whatever, hell yeah, I can't wait to see the Rio Grande, eat some kick ass food, visit with friends, (go to my best girlfriend's engagement party!) and walk around downtown, Nob Hill, the… Continue

OK, so he is just a dog and a rescue dog on top of that, which is kinda the point here. One of my wonderful companions of many years finally passed on last month. Paca, (yep, she was a rescue dog too and carried the acronym for People's Anti-Cruelty Association as her name), had been a great friend for about 15 years. When she passed on last month my other dog, Daisy, became increasingly lonely and subdued. I think I did too. It was… Continue

The Cinemark CEO gave approx $10K to support the passage of Prop8. Cinemark owns nearly all the theaters in Albuquerque. I don't care. Until the company recognizes what they have done and corrects it, I will not patronize their theaters. Here is the statement I sent them on their form for contact
Based on the news that the CEO of Cinemark has donated approximately $10,000 to support the passage of the discriminatory… Continue

Not to say that the patient has a pulse, but E&P bloggers Fitz & Jen report that Friends of the Albuquerque Tribune are at work:
"It wants to make a real online news site complimented by the free-distribution paper, which they hope to make a bi-monthly," Fitz & Jen write. "In true NPR-ish fashion, they’ve started a… Continue

Today is a very beautiful day here in the Duke City. The sun is shining and there is little to no wind ( for the time being). I came into the studio today and saw that another one of the artists here was here when I left last night and here again this morning. So I went to ask her in jest if she stayed the night here. She said no but something really bizarre happened last night. I inquired and she said she was returning from getting coffee at about 3 am and she heard footsteps behind her. She… Continue

Last week, New Mexicans across the district from Belen to Bernalillo, from Estancia to the East Mountains, and, from the Northeast Heights to the South Valley rose up, went to the polls and cast their ballot to change Washington.
To those of you who supported me, I'm humbled by your support and on behalf of my family and my campaign staff, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything that you've done to make this victory possible. This campaign was never about me -… Continue

NOB HILL--In a city that prizes its architects...in a city where even common folk like us can rattle off the names of Predock, Prince, Whittlesey, and John Gaw Meem...in such a place where buildings are talked about, few know the name of Henry C. Trost. Yet Trost has done more to shape the skyline of downtown Albuquerque than anybody else. He is responsible for designing no less than six of Central Avenue's signature structures plus a nearby house.… Continue

SunCal is making some brazen claims to brackish water in mile-deep wells beneath the old Atrisco Land Grant - among the brazen claims by others, including Atrisco Oil and Gas, Commonwealth Utilities and Sandoval County.
The uncharacteristically reality-based skepticism of the Albuquerque Journal was picked up by istockanalyst blog
