At my age I’m into comfort. I like comfortable shoes and clothes. I like comfortable relationships. I really love comfort food. As my friends and family know, my go-to place for comfort food in Albuquerque is Duran Central Pharmacy.
Last week I…Continue
How have I not seen this show until recently? Love it!
Beyond cool, these two. Great storytellers, they moved to Albuquerque in 2001 and we are claiming them for our own. From their website:
The Handsome Family record all their songs in a converted garage studio at the back of their house in Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA. Sometimes live they are a duo…Continue

I feel fortunate to know John Cline and feel even more fortunate that he has a wealth of archived video of the music scene in Albuquerque. Here is a news story of the music scene back in the 80s. It was Top 40 bands versus non-Top 40 bands. And as always, it's all bands versus club owners. Enjoy this awesome video!
What I am finding so wonderful about musicians past and present in Albuquerque's music scene, is that it encompasses so many genres. Fernando Ortega is a singer-songwriter of adult contemporary Christian music. He was born and raised in the North Valley and graduated from Valley High School. His brother was in the wildly popular …Continue

I’ve never aspired to be an actor on stage or in the movies, not even secretly. Acting is just one of those things that was never a dream of mine. I don’t have a fantasy Oscar speech tucked away somewhere and have never even thought of what I would say if I won an Academy Award.
Recently I worked with a troupe of Latina women,…Continue
OK, let's just get this straight. New Mexico has the best green chile in the world. Is there any doubt about that? If so, can Colorado really compete with the green deliciousness that we are so famous for?…Continue

Joanie Cere has one of those voices that when you hear it, you don't forget it. I wrote about Joanie and her BIG voice back in 2008. Her voice only seems to get bigger and better with time - you could say time is on her side!
From her bio on the Joanie and Combo…Continue

Today brings out the Irish in everyone, even here in Burque! If you don't have plans, here are a few suggestions. Happy St. Patrick's Day!Continue
Cool is the word when describing Floozy. Not only do they write cool songs, but also cover unexpected songs in a cool way. I am a bonafide member of Floozy Nation! 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

I adore Frank McCulloch Sr. I have known him and his family since I was a first grader at Alvarado Elementary School when I went to school with Frank Jr. Frank Sr. is a cultural treasure in this city and the state. 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
