I attended Keshet Dance Company's 14th Annual "Nutcracker on the Rocks" this afternoon. The show was staged at the National Hispanic Cultural Center here in Albuquerque.
The show was rousing and enjoyable complete with shouts and spontaneous applause from the audience. And while I'm a purist of sorts for ballet and theatre I have to admit this was, dare I say, better than the original... Don't get me wrong, I love the original. I think I enjoyed this show because it had pop music I… Continue

And more importantly, why is the New York Times writing about them
So here I am, in Louisville, KY, sitting at an Amish custom built mission style dining set, in my brother and sister-in-laws expansive kitchen- my coffee is surreptitiously spiked with Old Forester (hey- it's past Noon eastern time!) and I'm… Continue

In a perfect world, I'd write a post about a different local band here every week. I've had an active interest in the Albuquerque local music scene since the first week of August, 1993, when I became a resident of the Duke City. Actually, I think the first live music show I remember going to here was not a local act, but John Waite, at the Sunshine Theatre, in the Fall of '93.…

Ever have a stack of paperback or other books you don't know what to do with? I have a solution -
The Metropolitan Detention Center is always in need of reading material for the residents. Here's the only catch - if you want to donate books they must be given to one of the approved jail ministries/ministers. The ministry can carry them in.
Contact Calvary Chapel or Light & Liberty Ministries to give them the books. When you contact them be sure and ask what kind of… Continue

Recently I posted a blog about gay hate crimes and bullying that resulted in some lively comments. That was very good.
Now the City and UNM is stepping up to the plate. Today KRKE News featured an article on a gay community forum, the link is below. It was good of them to announce that UNM has a support system in place but beyond that there are others like New Mexico AIDS Services (NMAS) and their under 21 group, Equality NM, and other events that can be found through Common… Continue

When I watch touring shows, I often look for the kinds of lights they carry. Not all shows carry their own lights, but I do like to know what the companies who carry lights are bringing on their tour.
I just watched Grease
Wednesday night and was interested to see that they had an array of… Continue

When I say "Route 66 in New Mexico," what do you think of? Do you see the glow of neon signs shimmering on Central Avenue after a monsoon? Do you imagine the curved corners of stuccoed 1950s motels, now worn and cracked under the weight of time? Do you hear the revving of an old engine as an ancient Chrysler makes its way through the lights downtown? We think of Route 66 as Central Avenue, but there is another Route 66 in New Mexico.
In the… Continue
