Culture Shock

Listen, kids, you can have your skateboarding rap “sexting” graffiti tournaments. Those things are loud and rarely have chairs available. Me, I'll take the classics: wine, poetry, radio stories, morality plays. Some may consider such diversions old-timey, but I like to think of them as time-tested entertainment that ends early enough for me to catch "Nightline."

Anasazi Fields Winery in Placitas presents its Fruits of the Earth Celebration on Saturday, April 25, and Sunday, April 26, from noon to 6 p.m. Bring a picnic basket out to the winery and enjoy music by Tim O’Rourke, Bob Demboski and Ann Ahlander on Saturday, and Sage, Stagefright Slim and Mark Hardage on Sunday. Works from local artists will also be displayed to provide ambience and spiritual edification. Admission is free. For a handy map and more, go to

On Wednesday, April 29, over at the Filling Station, you can reminisce about the days of full-service fill-ups and the supremacy of radio as part of its Art of the Song LIVE series. Be a part of a live studio audience of a national broadcast of the syndicated program “Art of the Song Creativity Radio” and listen to this month's featured artist: Trout Fishing in America. Tractor Brewing will give it that bootleggy feel. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the program beginning at 7 p.m. Admission is free with a canned food donation for St. John's Cathedral Food Pantry. Reservations are recommended, so call 243-0596.

And there's nothing more old-timey than one of the first plays written in English, Everyman. A morality play that first hit the boards in the late 15th century, Everyman is chock-full of timeless lessons about greed and goodness. The Desert Rose Playhouse is putting on ye olde playe, and as it's a teaching theater, the cast is full of fresh faces from local middle and high schools. The show runs through May 3, with performances on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. Tickets are $12. See for more.

This week on Gallery Box talks up the Mariposa Gallery.
