Culture Shock

Freedom Rock—My eternal gratitude to everyone who came out for the Alibi's Festival of Opinions last Saturday on the Fourth Street mall. To paraphrase Bob Dylan, it was hotter than a crotch out there, so the folks that participated truly showed their dedication to free speech and the First Amendment. I lost four pounds in sweat, one pound for each hour in the heat, but the music was especially fantastic. Thanks to Selsun Blue, Fast Heart Mart and Daddy Long Loin for the tunes. And a big burlap sack stuffed with gratitude for the drummer from Selsun Blue who climbed up the light pole to plug in the extension cord. That was impressive. As you all know, freedom without electricity really isn't worth celebrating.

Later LifeThis Friday, the North Valley's Adobe Theater opens a new production of A.R. Gurney's Later Life. This comedy of manners follows the reunion of a middle-aged couple who missed an opportunity years earlier to form a relationship. Witty and smart, the play is directed by Rick Wiles and stars Lori Stewart, Dave McDowell, Richard Boehler and Katie Chavez. Later Life runs Fridays and Saturday at 8 p.m., Sundays at 2 p.m. through July 29. $12 general, $10 students/seniors. For more information, call 898-9222.

First Friday—The citywide gallery tour known as First Friday is happening this Friday. Don't miss this opportunity to take in some of the finest art in the city while mingling with the artsy crowd and munching on delicious snacks. The tour occurs this Friday, July 6, from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. For a list of participating galleries, go to www.artscrawlabq.org.
