Weekly Alibi
 May 7 - 13, 2009 
Maren Tarro grabs a carton of Camels and hits the open road to see what lies beyond the boundaries of Albuquerque. (She finds gypsum, nuts, a chimp named Ham and reminders of New Mexico's volcanic past.) Plus, the Alibi's Recession-Proof Summer Guide bubbles over with a season's worth of cheap thrills.
NEWS/OPINION
The proposed Desert Rock coal-fired power plant might get its permit yanked by the EPA. Albuquerque's brand-new Encantada TV channel brings local arts, film, food and sports programs to your television. And everyone should relax about swine flu.
MUSIC
Hip-hop a cappella artist Zack Freeman uses his voice to touch souls. Meanwhile, Super Furry Animals' Dark Days/Light Years bounces from funk to hippie jams to sunshine-folk and never stops to ask for directions, instead reveling in getting lost.
FOOD
Victory gardens are thriving for the first time since WWII; but if you want to save money with a backyard recession patch of your own, you've got to invest time and sweat.
FILM & TV
X-Men Origins: Wolverine isn’t an awful movie. It’s just completely mediocre in every way. And the indie comedy Gigantic is filled with terrific good humor and charming characters.
ARTS/LIT
Best-selling author Michael Datcher speaks about laying himself bare in his autobiography Raising Fences: A Black Man's Love Story. Plus, the Minotaur, armless cats and a devil are on display at Cirq Art Gallery and Boutique.
