Two-time Juno award-winning banjoist and composer Jayme Stone performs folk, jazz and chamber music while both defying and honoring the banjo's role in the world's music.
Jayme Stone brings an unusual guest into the house of jazz: the banjo. The young composer and banjoist has won two Juno awards with his genre-melding, border-hopping tunes. His 2017 album Jayme Stone’s Folklife is filled with his modern take on Appalachian hymns and Creole calypsos, and boasts features from Tim O’Brien and Moira Smiley and has earned glowing critical praise. Now, he’s bringing his unique sound to the Outpost to bring down the house with some acapella rounds and sing-along folk standards. The show is this Friday, Oct. 20, at 7:30pm. Tickets are $15 to $20 at outpostspace.org. (Robin Babb)
An in-depth discussion with the candidates for the Mayoral run-off election.
This year's Albuquerque Mayoral race has been a helluva lot of fun for local lovers of la politica. From Deanna Archuleta's surprise exit, to Gus Pedrotty's formidable showing, to Wayne Johnson's right wing crusade in the first round, Weekly Alibi has been there at ring side to bring you the blow-by-blow action. But it's not over yet! The run-off features two of this town's greatest contenders, State Auditor Tim Keller and Burque City Councilor Dan Lewis going toe to toe to see who's going to lead our sleepy burg into the future. Join us at the Albuquerque Press Club on Thursday, Oct. 26 at 6pm for a Fireside Chat where both candidates speak clearly and decisively about what they plan for el porvenir en Albuquerque. The event is FREE and provides citizens a great opportunity to take part in the democratic process while partaking in the awesome and ancient atmosphere of the local clubhouse where this town's fifth estate take their leisure hours seriously. The event is open to all, 21 years of age and older. Priority seating will be given to members of the press, but feel free to mingle and mix it up, no matter your station in life—you're a citizen after all! (August March)
