A Prince of Serendip

         Some mornings it’s tough to know what business I’m in.

     I work in a basement office. I process numbers, edit words, answer phone calls, attend meetings, monitor budgets. How different is that from any other office job?…

Fame

     “I'm gonna live forever, I'm gonna learn how to fly high.”

     People who perform for a living do it for the glory, right? They just want to be…

A Holiday Tradition

     If two performers meet on Christmas Day — or New Year’s Eve or Thanksgiving — one will certainly ask “Where’s your show tonight?” People in show biz work a lot of holidays.…

Joy to Our World

     When I first watched the video of Alice Tan Ridley singing on America’s Got Talent, I had the same reaction as the judges: surprise, awe and a shiver of joy. When I…

Making a Spectacle

Spectacles most often are built on numbers: numbers of people, numbers of decibels, numbers of lumens. Whenever you can say “biggest” about your event, you have a spectacle. (Think about the ongoing Albuquerque International Balloon…

A Contrary Trend?

In ancient Greece, theaters were only active twice a year. The elders considered drama powerful enough that it was rationed to the public so as not to cause too much emotional distress for citizens.

In Shakespeare’s day, there were only a handful of theater companies, so…

I Pods

Our musical tastes segment us. Our radio stations play specified lines of music. Pandora finds songs for you similar to those you already like. SiriusXM, among its more than 180 channels, offers pop…

A Little Local Music Pride





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.…

¡Globalquerque! Review

Had the pleasure of winning a couple tickets to go see ¡Globalquerque! on Friday night, September 17th and I realized that I've been remiss in not writing a review here on it! So here goes...



If you haven't been to it ever before, it takes place at the National Hispanic Cultural Center on 4th and Avenida César Chávez. I definitely recommend showing up a bit early as parking is limited on site. The shows start at about 6pm and end after 11. If you haven't been to the Hispanic Cultural… Continue

Richard Thompson at the ABQ Museum- Fabbity, fab, fab

Thanks to DCF and AMP concerts for this lovely evening. I will admit that my initial reason for wanting to go was because of Mr. Mombat. He has been teaching himself guitar for several years and I have gotten to hear increasingly better versions "52 Vincent Black Lighting".



I had not been to anything at the Museum since the amphitheater was re-modled. It is a wonderful venue. We got there just as… Continue

a bucket full of horny toads and a bluebird in my heart

Prelude:



Friday after work, when I logged into DCF, I saw the posting for tickets by Miss Scott. I clicked on to it, and looked around the virtual space, surprised no one had yet replied to the post. I mean, when DCF offers tickets, there's usually a rush of cyber feet to be the first there.



I read the post about the concert by… Continue

Solas Review

Recently won tickets to the Solas concert here on Duke City Fix and promised to write a review, well, here it is!



All in all an enjoyable night out for one that didn't happen. At least two of the band members barely made it out of Ireland before they close the airports down again for the grumpy volcano 'Eyjafjallajokull', only to then have fun with the Abq winds on their flight from Phoenix to Abq. On the personal side, I had my back go out for the first time in years, and being new… Continue

The Spirit of Cooperation

I’ve been thinking a lot about cooperation lately. I’m not sure why. Maybe I’ve been watching the lack of cooperation in Congress and am hoping for better.



Whatever the roots, my thoughts tend toward the performing arts. Artists are known for their egos and their temperaments, but what they should be known for instead is their cooperative attitude, especially those in the performing arts. Yes, there are those whose egos become impediments to cooperation, but most performers I’ve… Continue

Church of Beethoven does Brandenburg backwards



Last Sunday the Church of Beethoven had a packed house for the first in a series of performances of the six Brandenburg concertos. OK, so they didn’t actually play the notes in reverse order, but although it was the first in the series, they performed Concerto No. 6.



The next Brandenburg in the Church of Beethoven series will be No. 5 performed December 27, with the rest… Continue

Hey, that's Papi up on I-40!



It was pretty cool and a little weird to see my face on a billboard off of I-40. My kids get a kick out of seeing it every time we pass by. They all yell, "Es papi!" or "Fiesta de Colores!". I had to get a picture of it for memories sake.



It's pretty neat to make a living doing something my children can enjoy and sometimes take part in. I have some great memories of playing at the Downtown growers market, and having them join the… Continue
