The Wet Sox. Looking at all the Wet Sox videos makes me wish I had had a fake ID back in the day. These guys were the best of the best. I am fortunate to know John Cline who did their live sound and produced all their audio and video recordings. He said "We were pretty technically sophisticated, we set up television monitors…Continue
Something amazing happened last night. That’s right AMAZING. A friend and fellow Duke City Fix member, Krista, posted something on her Facebook page that piqued my interest. She posted a link to the Albuquerque Museum of Art’s…Continue

The folk art/recycle art community in this town is full of raw talent, quirkiness, and in some cases, pure genius. What better way to celebrate all of this than sharing art, music and food? Today was the 11th Annual Corkfest festival in the South Valley.

ANOTHER Throwback Thursday post about Christmas - this time from me. Merry Masshole Christmas!

Every year, we…
