Fashion in Burque
No, for serious
By Marisa Demarco [ Tue Feb 14 2012 2:29 PM ]
Most fashion writing bugs me. It’s usually snippy, sexist, classist, racist and, above all, anti-local. Women are the primary targets of criticism, everything is absurdly expensive, and white people fashion is the right fashion. Experts usually espouse advice in line with national trends that have nothing to do with your area.
And as we all know, ours is a region with identity.
Which is why I was thrilled to see some locals doing fashion right. The good people at Burque Style embarked on a mission to document our city. (Disclosure: One of their writers, Jessica Del Curto, used to work with me at the Daily Lobo.) The site doesn’t front a nasty tone. Instead, it celebrates the local fashion of regular people.
Today, the team’s posted a boo feature showcasing couples. It’s damn cute.

NY Times reviews Albuquerque ...
By Marisa Demarco [ Sun Oct 23 2011 9:00 AM ]
... and mostly gets it right.
The article came out in today’s travel section and is part of the “36 hours in ...” series. It appeared online on Thursday, Oct. 20.
Writer Zora O’Neill picked up on spots well-loved by the Alibi and its readers.
She suggests folks visit Parq Central, Golden Crown Panaderia, Marble (winner of Best Beer Bar in this year’s Best of Burque Restaurants), Ezra’s Place, Stevie’s Happy Bikes, Mary and Tito’s (winner of Best Red Chile in this year’s poll), the Church of Beethoven and Los Poblanos.
That’s a pretty good list. Don’t worry: She also gets to stalwarts such as Frontier, the Balloon Fiesta, the Bosque, the KiMo and the trolley.
O’Neill mentions that the sprawl is intimidating to travelers—an overlooked point in the argument for infill. She also makes a point of talking about Albuquerque’s “vibrant organic movement.” The Alibi’s food section has been emphasizing that unusual aspect of our desert city since early summer.

Zoology crushes it with debut album
By Summer Olsson
The 11 tracks on Zoology’s debut Krush Love buzz with electricity, but the musicians keep the energy tightly controlled, unspooling it meticulously. It’s tense. In a good way. The lyrics are clever and the rapping is precise, with multiple voices flowing smoothly around each other. Under the beats—involuntarily head-nod-inducing ones—melodies conjure hints of soul and jazz.
