Weekly Alibi
 Jun 4 - 10, 2009

NEWS/OPINION
Sick New Mexicans aren't just fighting illness, they're battling the medical debt that treatment racks up. Is the cure is worse than the disease? Plus, our state is the least prepared in the country for the impending digital TV conversion. Are you ready?
MUSIC
Hobbs singer-songwriter Jasper Brown writes music about murder and lives to tell the tale. Meanwhile, the Alibi's first-ever Pride party takes place in space.
FOOD
Globe-trotting food writer Ari LeVaux straps in as the Alibi's new restaurant critic: He's thrilled that Mai Thai is his first stop in Albuquerque. Plus, that L.A. taco truck staple of pickled carrot, jalapeño and white onion gets the squeeze bottle treatment.
FILM & TV
The Hangover follows the goofy, male-nudity-laced footwork of this generation's "dude film" tradition. And UP offers another example of why Pixar is the movie studio to beat when it comes to animated features.
ARTS/LIT
Get a feel for the differing styles that exist within the realm of contemporary dance at the Wild Dancing West festival. And Los Fantasticos’ Days of Future Past at South Broadway Cultural Center shows off the vanguard of Albuquerque's painting powerhouses.
