Burque Music Scene: Floozy

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…

Burque Music Scene: Frank McCulloch y Sus Amigos

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…

Burque Music Scene: Femme Fatale

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…

Meet Nani Chacon

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…

Burque Music Scene: Hillary Smith

Let's just talk about Hillary Smith.  Have you ever heard a voice so powerful, so soulful, so seductive, that the second you hear it the goosebumps just pop up all over your body?  If you've heard Hillary sing, you know exactly what I am talking about. 

Hillary has one of those one-in-a-million voices that transcends all genres.  Whether belting out the…

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.

The Art of Creating

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…

Way Back Wednesday!

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…

Burque Music Scene: Wet Sox

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…
