NEWS/OPINION
The unemployment rate in New Mexico is climbing. The first openly gay person to run for office visits Albuquerque for National Coming Out Day. And does the McCain Campaign want some cheese with that whine?
MUSIC
Soul singer Eli "Paperboy" Reed has a howling voice from yesteryear. And Tony Bennett says Chiara Civello is “the best jazz singer of her generation." You can hear her for yourself when the Outpost Performance Space opens its 20th season.
Websclusive: FOTW: Pan!c CD Release
It's the Pan!c CD release. See its rad flyer here.
FOOD
Mayan Cuisine: Recipes from the Yucatan Region blooms with brilliantly colored photos and equally vibrant descriptions of this provocative cuisine. Plus, do you really need all that sugar in homemade jam?
FILM & TV
Blindness is a hopelessly self-important, cluelessly tone-deaf sci-fi parable. And Flash of Genius is a biopic about the guy who invented the intermittent windshield wiper. Excited yet?
ARTS/LIT
The Weir is a booze-heavy Irish play with tight, well-executed performances and a set that puts you right in the action. And Eternal Enemies by Adam Zagajewski gives us stunning, imagistic remembrances of childhood, elegies to poets and glancing snapshots of life on the move.
