Alibi Picks B-list
Wow, wow, wowza! You Burque event planners were busy getting this weekend together. On top of the usual, I have quite a few events to fill out your schedule. Here is goes!
Battle of the Bands—Starting at 4 p.m., local bands take over the KiMo for a Battle of the Bands! Tickets are just $5 for adults and kids 12-and-under are free. (And why you're Downtown, why not hit up the Go Arts Festival?)
Duke City Improv Festival—The Box Performance Space offers up a weekend of improv awesomeness with shows tonight and tomorrow at 7, 8 and 9:30 p.m. and Wowie Ka Bowzo at 6 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are just $5 per show or $15 for the whole weekend.
Napa vs. Sonoma—Whole Foods Market (5815 Wyoming NE) hosts this wine tasting event from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. comparing wines from these two distinct regions (Napa Valley Wine Country and Sonoma Wine Country). But, space is limited and it's $15 per person, so call quick (856-0474) if you want in.
Lobo Scrimmage—For baseball fans, head to Isotopes Park on Saturday at 1 p.m. for a scrimmage between current UNM Lobo players and alums as part of Homecoming festivities. It's free and open to everyone!
