The Good, the Bad and the UglyNews Interview
The best, the worst and the despicably soiled: The Alibi runs Albuquerque's top newsmakers of 2005 through its ethical wringer, then hangs the dirty laundry out to dry. Sort the ironed-out facts from the lies that fold neatly under scrutiny--spin-cycle free!
What the hell is salt cedar? Even more importantly, why don't you hate it yet? Matt Schmader appeals to your shrub-hating, plant-maiming instincts in a candid conversation with the Alibi.
DJ Lowkey kicks off the Alibi's brand spankin' new "Wax Tracks" column with a farewell New Year's Eve performance and interview. Read on and say you were there!
It was the best of food, it was the worst of food: Dig into the most drool-inducing New Mexico culinary books of 2005, then learn to throw your own despicable Asshole's Tea Party.

AJ Woods Cassette Release Venue Change
Tortuga Gallery Tonight!
Last minute change of venue for AJ Woods' tape release, the fourth location change for this show. Because AJ is willing to tempt fate with the audacity of Hercules, he is now also bringing a bag of black cats to dump in front of his path to the stage.
The previous location, published in this week's Alibi with an enthusiastic review of AJ's latest collection of dark folk-rock, had its electricity cut. Show up instead at Tortuga Gallery, 901 Edith SE for the same excellent opening acts: Javelina, San Diego's Labs and Julie Byrne from Seattle. If you like dark American folk-rock, this is the ticket.
