Duke City and Big Apple tag-team for scintillating show

By Blake Driver
When Albuquerque-based stripteaser Holly Rebelle was thinking about performing in this year’s Texas Burlesque Festival in Austin, one of the show’s producers dissuaded her from bringing her Jackie O. tribute act. She’ll be performing it along with other acts by her troupe, Burlesque Noir, as they host NYC’s Dangerous Curves Ahead: Burlesque on the Go-Go on Thursday, April 26 at Aux Dog.

Black Market Goods resurfaces for Gathering of Nations with eclectic bash

By Sam Adams

The flyer for Josh Jones' Injunuity art show depicts a head-dressed Native American cartoon character gleefully gassing an undersized hotrod beneath the tagline "Start your Injuns!"

Miniature in Madrid

By Sam Adams

Sometimes when you think big, you have to think small. No, that's not a quote from Yogi Berra. It's the formula gallerist Cassidy Watt employed to curate In Microscale, a show of 150-odd pieces from about 45 artists, now in its second annual iteration at Metallo Gallery in Madrid. The criteria: create pieces of art that, if 2D, have a surface area of no more than 36 square inches. "I didn't want to tie the artists’ hands behind their backs. You could do a 1-by-36 if you wanted to," he says. If the work is 3D, well, just keep it small.
