Maren Tarro grabs a carton of Camels and hits the open road to see what lies beyond the boundaries of Albuquerque. (She finds gypsum, nuts, a chimp named Ham and reminders of New Mexico's volcanic past.) Plus, the Alibi's Recession-Proof Summer Guide bubbles over with a season's worth of cheap thrills.
The proposed Desert Rock coal-fired power plant might get its permit yanked by the EPA. Albuquerque's brand-new Encantada TV channel brings local arts, film, food and sports programs to your television. And everyone should relax about swine flu.
Hip-hop a cappella artist Zack Freeman uses his voice to touch souls. Meanwhile, Super Furry Animals' Dark Days/Light Years bounces from funk to hippie jams to sunshine-folk and never stops to ask for directions, instead reveling in getting lost.
Victory gardens are thriving for the first time since WWII; but if you want to save money with a backyard recession patch of your own, you've got to invest time and sweat.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine isn’t an awful movie. It’s just completely mediocre in every way. And the indie comedy Gigantic is filled with terrific good humor and charming characters.
Best-selling author Michael Datcher speaks about laying himself bare in his autobiography Raising Fences: A Black Man's Love Story. Plus, the Minotaur, armless cats and a devil are on display at Cirq Art Gallery and Boutique.

Nostalgia Ain’t What It Used to Be

September: A New Show by Laurel and Ewen

Ewen Wright and Laurel Butler

Will you ever look back on right now with longing? When Ewen Wright and Laurel Butler left Burque for San Francisco in 2011, the couple—longtime performance collaborators—found themselves unexpectedly thrown out of sync as they tried to stay afloat in the pricey, tech-obsessed city. “We both had jobs that put us in front of computers most of the day,” says Wright, “and then had phones that we looked at on the way home, and then computers we could get in front of for the evening.”

Their burgeoning disconnection ultimately led to a new act that incorporated dance, physical theater and poetic narrative into absurdist vignettes about memory and togetherness. “We began to imagine having a sense of nostalgia, in the future, for all of the things as they are now—smartphones, Facebook, Buzzfeed, apps, etc.,” Wright says. September: A New Show by Laurel and Ewen captures real and imagined eras in a couple’s lifespan, and “gluing it all together is the outline of a love story.” The show comes to the Box (100 Gold SW) on Saturday, Aug. 2, at 10:30pm, and Sunday, Aug. 3, at 7:30pm.
