Big 10—New Grounds Print Workshop and Gallery (3812 Central SE) is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this month. Stop by the gallery this Friday, Aug. 18, from 5 to 8 p.m. for live tunes, some delicious chow and special presentations by New Grounds members. For details, call 268-8952 or go to www.newgroundsprintshop.com.
Ecotone—Kevin Paul founded Incus a couple years ago. The experimental music group, which also consists of Mike Berry, Rufus Cohen and Catie Berkenfield, makes extensive use of electronics, computers and improvisation. They're joining forces with the Jewell and Company Dance Theater for a pair of performances this weekend at UNM's Theatre X. Warning: There might be some audience participation involved. Friday, Aug. 18, and Saturday, Aug. 19, at 8 p.m. $8 general, $6 students/seniors. For details, call 277-4569.
Paine Radebaugh—There's still time to catch Alan Paine Radebaugh's solo show over at the Coleman Gallery (3812 Central SE). His latest work is a departure from the blossoming, brightly hued work he's done in recent years. Then again, it's easy to see how these new fragmented abstract paintings are related to what came before. Definitely give this show a look. It's hanging through Aug. 25. 232-0224.
Alibi Online Book Club—Yep, it's up and running. We all had a great time last Tuesday meeting J.R. Moehringer over at Slate Street Café. Even if you missed the party, there's no reason to go hang yourself. We still like you. We'll still be your friends. Read this Pulitzer Prize-winning author's fabulous memoir The Tender Bar and take part in an online discussion at alibi.com. All are welcome. Mention the Alibi Book Club at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande NW, 344-8139), Albuquerque's finest independent bookstore, and get a 10 percent discount. You'll love this book!
