Ask Adelita: Cleanest Restrooms in ABQ

Dear Adelita,

Don't think I've ever seen this discussed on Duke City Fix before, but I was wondering where the nicest, cleanest public restrooms are. Are there any that are elegant? (for lack of a better word!) I know where a lot of gross restrooms are in ABQ, but the nice ones? Fill me in…

Mala Maña.  This is a group of women that tell stories through rhythm, percussion, and their strong voices. 

From their website: 

Albuquerque's own all-female voice and percussion ensemble, fusing contemporary and folkloric rhythms of the African diasporas. Much of our focus is in Latin American music; however, we encompass influences of all the…

I know the Duke City Fix community loves to talk about food.  Let's just settle the pizza debate once and for all.  Farina has the best pizza in town.  There, I've said it.  I'm curious, what is your favorite pizza in Albuquerque?

So who here in Duke City Fix land remembers The Philisteens?  I remember seeing them only once back in college, but I know they were a pretty big deal!

Ask Adelita: Goatheads!

Dear Adelita,

I'm loving the rain, but I'm starting to get worried about what looks like it's going to be a bumper crop of goatheads. Short of napalm, what can I do to control the noxious weed?…

Burque Music Scene: Quality Retreads

What do you get when you cross Irish music with rockabilly and blues?  You get the Quality Retreads! I love this band!  Lead singer and banjo (sic) player Sean O'Connor is a dear old friend and while I'm still not sure why he switched from guitar to banjo, he makes it sound A-OK.  Original tunes, covers of the Pogues and traditional Irish pub songs makes this band a…

Ask Adelita: Guitar repair

Dear Adelita,

I recently bought a used guitar. I've been plunking around on it a little bit, and have taught myself a few things via YouTube videos.  The problem I'm having is that the guitar needs some work.  It's not a super fancy guitar but it is a Fender.  I bought it on Craigslist from an old guy who said he's had it for years.  Not only does it need some repairs, but I'd like to see if it's worth…

Ask Adelita

Dear Adelita,

You are going to think I am crazy, but I'm pretty sure I just bought a haunted house!  I've moved from the far northeast Heights to the North Valley.  I've always wanted an old adobe and finally got a house that fits the bill.  I live close to the river with wonderful lush vegetation around…
