Formerly a trio and now a duo, the band is Bronson Elliott on guitar, drums, spoons, dance (Latin), vocals and Tanya Nunez on upright bass, dance…Continue

Not only is he one of my favorite painters, but one of the coolest musicians around. He celebrates his New Mexican heritage both musically and…Continue

The hair. Oh that 80s hair! My best buddy Pete and I would head to Graham Central Station or one of the other top 40 clubs in town and dance all night to Babe Ruthless. Lead singer Lorraine Lewis was a powerhouse singer with energy and sex appeal to drive the…Continue

I am obsessed with images of vintage Mexican calendar girls. I love the images so much that I used them in my art, jewelry and prefer to use them as my profile pictures on Facebook. When a friend told me that I should check…Continue

Seriously, who doesn't love filthy, mangy jazz?! Le Chat Lunatique is cool as hell. At the risk of gushing, I simply love this band. Muscianship? Masters at their craft.
From their website:
Le Chat Lunatique is Muni Kulasinghe’s theatrical vocals, his violin…Continue
I love making art. I love being crafty. I often have “artsy craftsy” get-togethers with friends and family at my house. Nothing is more fun than getting together with people you love, having some snacks, maybe a few cocktails, and then creating something with your hands.
We were always crafty at our house…Continue
It seems fitting that the day after Bob Marley's birthday and after seeing them open for the Wailers at the Sunshine Theater last night, I should feature ¡Revìva! today.
From their Facebook page: Consisting of six members; Glenn “Buddha” Benavidez (Bass), Cody Jones (Percussion), Danny “The Harp” Garcia (Keys/Harmonica), Ragon Espinosa (Drums), Jerel Garcia…Continue

Way back when I first started blogging on DCF, it took a while to find my writing "voice." There was one particular post that kind of went through the roof with comments. Let's just say that I, Adelita, was around long before our beloved…Continue
The other day I was thinking about a childhood memory. I remembered as a small child I used to run around the old Albuquerque Sunport when it housed the Albuquerque…
There are eight artist rooms and each of them contains exclusive large scale installation work created by Native American artists Jaque…Continue
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
