Gothic Poetics

The Bells: A Night of Poe Inspired Music

American Romantic author Edgar Allen Poe's stories of love and horror have long inspired sonic interpretation. Composers like André Caplet, Rachmaninoff and Nikita Koshkin all created aural tributes to his work. Modern music is likewise littered with references to the macabre maven's tales. From country and folk singers like Jim Reeves, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez to metal acts like Nightwish, Iron Maiden and Cradle of Filth, songs influenced by Poe's yarns are omnipresent. As part of the 2013 Poe Festival, local musicians gather to pay homage to the writer at Blackbird Buvette (509 Central NW) tomorrow night. Starting at 10 p.m., Ladies Society of Grenadiers, The Great Depression, Barney Lopez, Chris Walsh and Ryan Sciarrotta rock “The Bells” at this free, 21-and-over concert. Blackbird Buvette • Sat Feb 9 • 10 pm • FREE • 21+ • View on Alibi calendar

Secret No More

B2B Bistronomy arrives in Nob Hill

Nestled into half of the space formerly occupied by now-defunct Vivace, Bistronomy B2B is a small restaurant that specializes in burgers and beer (that’s what the B2B stands for), as well as salads and mixed drinks. Inside, a square bar dominates the dining area. Behind it, a wall of 33 taps pump out an assortment of local microbrewsMarble, Chama River, Turtle Mountain, etc. Bistronomy is yet another proponent of the locavore trend, so the beer and food both call Albuquerque home.

Light and Luscious

Limonata Italian Street Food Caffe

There was a time when the words "Italian street food" conjured one image in my mindgelato. The treat was all I saw in Italy as a poor college student, not because it actually was the only street food available, but because it was so eye-grabbing and delicious.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #273: I ride my bike onto the UNM campus.

I ride my bike onto the UNM campus from Central. I meet my boss walking west. He has some suggestions for me. I ride on. Everything seems new and different from when I went to school. I see my boss again, who has some more suggestions. G is waiting for me on the mall with her friends. I am 5 minutes late. We must get to McGee’s restaurant. We ride together across campus. I am able to ride up and down the steps smoothly. In a concrete drain V, people lay reading. In the V, I run over a girl's stick of butter. My tires start to slip a little. We arrive at McGee’s. The waiters are all well-dressed and there are fancy green and yellow oil lamps on the long central bar. It seems like a pretty nice place for UNM.

Deschutes Base Camp Week: Hats Off to Homebrewers

Courtesy of Deschutes Brewery

The guys from Deschutes Brewery, purveyor of Mirror Pond Ale and Obsidian Stout, are in town for Base Camp Week, a craft beer celebration. There will be events all around town, from a White IPA release party at Seasons Rotisserie & Grill to a tasting at Jubilation, and appearances by, um, "a giant traveling beer barrel named Woody." But the event I'm most excited about is the Hats Off to Homebrewers workshop tonight at O'Niell's Pub on Juan Tabo. Deschutes brewer David Brendgard will be offering advice to local do-it-your-selfers on improving their beer. He'll also be giving away recipe books, bags of hops and other complimentary brewing supplies. A crew from La Cumbre Brewing will be on tap to talk shop, too. Plus, O'Niell's will offer a special menu starting at 6 p.m. and pair it with selected beers for the occasion. $20 gets you in the door$15 if you're a member of the American Homebrewers Association. O'Niell's Pub, Northeast Heights • 5-8 pm • $15-$20 • 21+ • deschutesbrewery.com
