Culture Shock

Art 'Round Every Corner—It's an especially groovy weekend for new exhibits here in Albuquerque. First off, over at Sol Arts (712 Central SE), there'll be a special comics extravaganza on Saturday, Dec. 3, to benefit Sweet Seven Thousands Baaad Assss Comics, a collective of Northern New Mexico writers and artists all of whom are interested in promoting the medium of comics. The event runs from noon to 6 p.m. For a mere $5, you'll get a full afternoon of entertainment including everything from music, poetry, film, video and caricatures to haircuts by the Blue Monkey School of Cosmetology. (I'm not sure what that's about.) For details, call 244-0049.

Gallery Review

The Many Faces of Zapata

¡Zapata Vive! at the Jonson Gallery

In 1919, Emiliano Zapata—horse trainer, sharecropper and leader of the Liberation Army of the South—fell into a trap and was killed by Mexican troops. The only photographs taken of Zapata without his permission were of his dead body, dumped on the street by Venustiano Carranza's constitutionalists. Overnight, he became a martyr. Nearly a century later, images of Zapata are still used in art and political propaganda, often as a revolutionary symbol of the rights of the poor and voiceless.

First Friday Artscrawl

All Over Albuquerque

Galleries across the entire city open their doors to the public this Friday evening for a citywide Artscrawl gallery tour. As always, this presents a fine opportunity to catch a bunch of smokin' hot new exhibits in a single evening while mingling with artists and gobbling a few snackedy-snacks while you're at it. Put on that top hat and tails, and hit the town. The tour runs from 5 to 9 p.m. For the full roster of participating galleries, call 244-0362 or go to artscrawlabq.org.

Love & Beauty

Tricklock Performance Space

The new production opening this weekend at the Tricklock Performance Space will provide audiences with a rare chance to see Shenoah Allen and Mark Chavez clothed in something other than pajamas. The comedy duo known as The Pajama Men have teamed up for a different kind of project in Love & Beauty, "a comic massacre" that evolved out of a Tricklock show from a couple years ago called Dandelion Clockwork. You will laugh. You will wince. You will wish you'd worn a plastic raincoat to protect your clothes from a rainstorm of blood and gore. Thursday through Saturday at 8 p.m. Sunday at 6 p.m. $15 general, $12 students/seniors. Thursday, Dec. 1, is a student rush performance. (Tickets are $8 with valid ID.) Friday, Dec. 2, is the catered opening night gala. (Eats and treats at 8 p.m. Curtain at 9 p.m. All tickets $20.) 254-8393.

Book Review

Sexy Beast

Bald: From Hairless Heroes to Comic Combovers

Sean Connery, Patrick Stewart and Vin Diesel have all been voted tops in polls of male sexiness. One trait each of these men shares is their utter baldness—yet their lack of hair does not in any way diminish their attractiveness.

Doctor's Orders

Marc Simmons of New Mexico: Maverick Historian

If you've spent any time at all nosing around New Mexico history, you've come across the name Marc Simmons. Revered for his lively storytelling as well as his commitment to lassoing the wayward fact, Simmons has spent a lifetime sharing his distinctive perspective on the state we call home.
