APS and CNM leadership hinges on your vote Tuesday, Feb. 1. The Alibi spoke with all of the candidates running for the APS School Board and CNM Governing Board. CNM English faculty member Erin Adair-Hodges explains the potential consequences of Governor Martinez's proposed 17.7 percent reduction in state funding for the community college. Lousy Robot, local purveyor of power pop extraordinaire, releases its John Dufilho-produced (The Deathray Davies and The Apples In Stereo) third album Hail The Conquering Fool. Desert Fish takes diners out of the arid Southwest and into the wet, salty Pacific Northwest with sincere decor and super fresh seafood. Biutiful, a new film by Alejandro González Iñárritu (Amores Perros, 21 Grams, Babel), finds the director telling a smaller, more intimate story. John Millington Synge’s The Playboy of the Western World—a story set at the turn of the last century in small town Ireland and staged at The Adobe Theater—is fascinated with extremes.
