Wooooo!!! Time to party like it's 2017! What's the occasion, you ask? The All-American Solar Eclipse is happening! According to our super smart buddies at NASA, the moon will pass between the sun and Earth and thereby block out all or part of the sun for up to three hours (depending on where you are). Don't witness this epic solar event solo. Rather, head to Cherry Hills Library, Main Library or West Gate Heights Library for viewing parties… [ more >> ]

If you're temporally inclined, then this year's Bubonicon—that's Bubonicon 49 for those of you counting—has something for you. The theme that these space-age fantasy and sci-fi creatives have dreamed up for the beloved convention this summer at the Albuquerque Mariott is time travel, and heavy-hitters from around the state and the country will gather to weigh in on panels like “Rebel Scum: Opposing the Empire,” “Exo-Planets: What We've Learned,” and “Felines & Feline Aliens in Sci-Fi and Fantasy: The Cat's Meow.” Master of Ceremonies is the indelible Victor Milan, and artist Elizabeth Leggett (who sports a Hugo Award for her work) will hold the spot of Artist Guest of Honor. Daily tickets start at $15 for this con, which runs from Friday, Aug. 25 to Sunday, Aug. 27—if you've been to Bubonicon before, you know that's steal. (Maggie Grimason)
It's true, the season wanes. But before the limitless sunshine fades into a cold and cloudy autumnal age, have one more go at Summerfest, the Duke City's free musical answer to all that ails ye. The final iteration of this longtime Albuquerque tradition takes place on Saturday, Aug. 26. The event—which also spotlights a market with local, handmade goods for sale, children's activities, a microbrew garden and heaps of happening food trucks—features rocanrol legend Chubby Checker, a performer whose dynamism and damn good tuneage made him a favorite with generations of Americans. Checker and and his band the Wildcats will be twistin' the night away beginning at 9pm, but there'll also be sets by local musicos, including The People, Melanie Anne and The Real Matt Jones. Summerfest is free, open from 5-10:30pm to all ages, but if you bring your perrito querido, remember that a leash is required.
