In a musical world filled with tribute and cover bands of all sorts—as well as a booming casino industry willing to host such simulacra—it was only a matter of time before legendary songstress Selena got the star treatment such verisimilitudes invoke and evoke among myth-craving, slot-machine-playing audiences. Enter Evelyn Molina y Los Chicos del 512, ostensibly the closest one can get in 2017 to a performance by the aforementioned Queen of Tejano music. Although Ms. Quintanilla-Pérez tragically passed away more than 20 years ago, her sound and style live on through Molina's project. Performing hits from the now mythic star's canon, including selections from Selena's 1992 breakthrough album Entre a Mi Mundo, Molina y Los Chicos are scheduled to perform at Isleta Resort and Casino on Saturday, Jan. 14, so prepare yourself for some Amor Prohibido. Tickets cost between $10-$20. Isleta Resort & Casino • Sat Jan 14 • 8pm • $10-$20 • 21+ • View on Alibi calendar
Those with a passion for sharing the unique history and culture of local communities and those looking for a flexible volunteer schedule will want to take advantage of Casa San Ysidro's docent training later this month.
Inside the adobe walls at Casa San Ysidro are furnishings, tools and art used when New Mexicans lived on a remote frontier. It is now considered one of the world's most comprehensive collections of New Mexican art and furnishings.
People will love volunteering at Casa San Ysidro because:
Helping at Casa is meaningful: Each month, volunteers help more than 400 APS students explore how ordinary New Mexicans accomplish extraordinary things.
It's also flexible: Casa docents support public tours and large public events throughout the year according to their schedule.
Casa is an enriching environment: regular docent-exclusive enrichment activities are offered with invited speakers and tours to important New Mexican places.
