Culture Shock

First Friday

If you've never been to a First Friday Artscrawl, well, that's OK. You've been busy. Work, the kids, your biannual attempt to read Ulysses; such is the busy stuff of life. But an Artscrawl is one of the best ways to see a ton of art, eat some cheese and make new culture-loving friends, finally enabling you to ditch your culture-hating ones. Let them stay at home and watch "Ghost Medium"—you've got better things to do. Openings and receptions are not just happening in Nob Hill, but all around the city. Artscrawlabq.org is the ultimate resource for all of the gallery goings-on for this Friday, Feb. 6.

Performance Review

Topdog/Underdog

Old scores settled at The Vortex

Topdog/Underdog takes place in a room. A one-room apartment, no bathroom or running water, shared by brothers Lincoln and Booth. Younger brother Booth (Travis Sweatte) provides supplies through a gift for the quick steal, but his attempts to improve his lot with three-card monte are ham-handed and loud. It is older brother Lincoln (Darryl DeLoach) who was once the three-card king, and though he also has tried to make a different life for himself through “legitimate” employment, it’s the specter of his old life that hangs over the actions of the play.

Book Review

Here We Are Now

X Saves the World: How Generation X Got the Shaft but Can Still Keep Everything From Sucking (The Manifesto for a Generation That's Never Had Much Use for Manifestos)

It was 1991 when everything changed. Before that, music sucked, TV sucked, movies sucked. Anything of merit that had grown out of the late ’70s and early ’80s, like punk or new wave or Blade Runner, had been subsumed by the Reagan/Bush years and Boomer greed. By the early ’90s, it was all Color Me Badd, in some permutation or another.
