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.

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…

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
It's no secret that I am a major blueshead. When I want to hear some scorching, in-your-face, screaming blues guitar, I go listen to the Memphis P. Tails. Many members of this band have come and gone, but the mainstay has always been guitarist Darin Goldston. This is one hard working band. Whether playing blues festivals or Molly's up in Tijeras, they never…Continue

Hearts, love, and kisses have been on my mind a lot lately, both the real kind and also the Valentine-y kind. In a couple of weeks (24 days, to be exact) we will celebrate St. Valentine’s Day. I am one of those types who doesn’t care if it is a Hallmark holiday, I like getting mushy cards and…Continue
My friend Neat Pete and I used to love to go out dancing all the time, way back in the 80s. It was our weekend ritual to seek out the best and most danceable bands in town. The Shakers fit the bill. They were one of the most popular new wave bands in Albuquerque at the time. We would get out on the dance floor and hop around in our best Guess jeans and new wave dance…Continue
Something amazing happened last night. That’s right AMAZING. A friend and fellow Duke City Fix member, Krista, posted something on her Facebook page that piqued my interest. She posted a link to the Albuquerque Museum of Art’s…Continue
