MUSIC
Cal Haines has played with Diahann Carroll, Al Greene and Clark Terry, but perhaps the jazz drummer's most impressive credential is his latest CD, The Bright Side. Meanwhile, after getting married, the gothic new-wave act Post Honeymoon finds out what it's like to make music as a twosome.
FOOD
Paisano’s homemade pasta nails the sweet spot between supple and firm. And just add a pair of farmers' market eggs for a hearty breakfast with nature's fake steak: king trumpet mushrooms.
FILM & TV
Two documentaries at Guild Cinema take an artful but layman-friendly look at the ways art is defined. Plus, "Man vs. Cartoon" picks up the explosive science-as-entertainment thread started by “MythBusters” and runs it off a cliff (literally).
ARTS/LIT
LAND/ART is as big as the Earth is round and just as gorgeous. Plus, technology and creativity collide at dorkbot.

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.

Stay tuned for next week's guidelines and if you don't already, follow us on Instagram!
