Expired clichés: The Alibi recounts Albuquerqueisms that should take the next Rapid Ride out of here.
NEWS/OPINION
Does Mayor Martin Chavez want a ban on booze at all-ages shows? Depends on what day you ask. The presidential candidates and their surrogates descend on New Mexico. And the Albuquerque Journal calls Sen. Hillary Clinton a cheerleader.
MUSIC

The weilder of the whammy bar, Judas Priest guitarist K.K. Downing, talks to the
Alibi about what it takes to be a rock idol. Meanwhile, violinist, Rock and Rhythm Band founder and former shy kid Robb Janov talks about life through music.
FOOD
When it comes to following the well-established American sushi formula, Sushi Hana doesn't stray from what's expected. And Bottle Shock is a wine film that's basted in controversy.
FILM & TV
Encounters at the End of the World is a rumination on the world’s harshest embodiment of Mother Nature: the Antarctic. This time, it’s personal. Plus, a triple shot of horror classics from the ’80s.
ARTS/LIT
Rabbit Hole paints a realistic picture of a parent's worst nightmare. And Bubonicon draws about 500 science-fiction, fantasy and horror enthusiasts rarin’ to meet authors, try cereals named after movies or dress up like a Sith Lord.

Sign of the times: Our weekly Instagram photo contest winner

Each week we reward one passionate Alibi reader-slash-Instagrammer with $10 in Alibi Bucks. Alibi Bucks can help you get anything from tickets to Naked Food Fair to a sandwich at Cafe Lush and each week we have new deals to spend your bucks on.

This week we asked you to tag us in pictures of your favorite Albuquerque signs and you posted some pretty killer retro signs.

Our second runner up, gq.ninja posted this awesome old school KOB sign. The vintage simplicity is really a sign of the times and we love the bare tree branches in the distance. Thanks for posting!

This week's winner is lettersfromburque's gorgeous picture of the Helen's Bakery sign. We love the backdrop of our dreamy Albuquerque skies and the vibrant turquoise cross against the weathered white wooden sign. Thank you for posting! To collect your prize and Alibi Bucks email Amelia@alibi.com.
