AMP Gallery Series

AMP Concerts' home shows may be no more, but Neal Copperman is making sure AMP-quality shows will be found in the Duke City. The AMP Gallery Series continues where the house concerts left off, offering a variety of music in an informal, community fashion (with a potluck to boot) at a local art gallery. This Friday, Feb. 15, AMP presents Caji and Salomé at the Windchime Champagne Gallery (518 Central SW) at 7:30 p.m. Caji and Salomé meld Brazilian guitar with songs from Portugal, Cuba, South America, Cabo Verde and France, creating sophisticated, romantic grooves. Tickets are $15 in advance at or Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande NW) and $20 at the door.

My Name is Rachel Corrie

Rachel Corrie was killed in 2003 while trying to stop an Israeli bulldozer in the Palestinian area of Rafah. Alan Rickman and Katharine Viner took e-mails, parts of her journal and other writings, edited them together and created a one-women show, My Name is Rachel Corrie. Countdown to Zero, a Denver-based political theater collective, and Justice First! have teamed up to bring the performance to Albuquerque. Countdown to Zero’s Julie Rada will portray Corrie this Saturday, Feb. 16, and Sunday, Feb. 17, at 2 p.m. during this limited run at Out ch'YondA (929 Fourth Street SW). Tickets are $20 and reservations are recommended. Call 350-1276 or visit for more info.
