Awww ... Babies!
By Erin Adair-Hodges
Babies love salsa. The dance. Please don't give your baby salsa to eat, even if you think the crying is funny. Instead, scoop up your little pooper and head over to the National Hispanic Cultural Center (1701 Fourth Street SW) for Baby Loves Salsa! With José Conde on Saturday, Aug. 15, at noon. Brought to you by the NHCC, ¡Globalquerque! and the New Mexico Jazz Workshop, an imaginary band of cats and dogs weaves together a hearty mix of Afro-Latin musical styles that your wee bairn won't be able to resist. Come for the music, stay for the baby dancing. Have you seen babies dance? It's hilarious. Tickets range from $5 to $15 and can be had at the NHCC box office or through ticketmaster.com. For more, see nhccnm.org.

A Hard Knock Life
Review by Erin Adair-Hodges
Rock Candy, the newest release from Albuquerque's West End Press, is a collection of 32 poems by Jenifer Rae Vernon that meditates on the lives of working-class Americans, primarily in the writer's native Pacific Northwest. The book is populated by the kinds of characters that pop up in a Raymond Carver story: the long-suffering who stew in alcohol and silence. Rock Candy exists as if to say that even out of such hardness, a little beauty can be found.
