Free Sunday Afternoon Chautauqua Performances
Press Release [ Fri Feb 10 2017 8:31 AM ]
Billie Holiday, also known as Lady Day, was born to sing her blues in jazzy, sultry tones from coast to coast. Holiday's personal life was tumultuous and the difficulties of poverty and prejudice created a complex backdrop for a sadness she was unable to overcome.
As part of the KiMo Theatre's 90th anniversary celebration, and in partnership with the New Mexico Humanities Council and the New Mexico Department of Cultural Affairs, a free Chautauqua performance will bring Holiday's story to life at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 12 at the historic theater.
In Singin' the Blues, Brenda Hollingsworth-Marley stars as Holiday, who was introduced to Harlem and the Harlem Renaissance in the late 1920s. Holiday used her unique singing style to work with Benny Goodman, Teddy Wilson, Bessie Smith and a number of other blues and jazz greats of her time. Known for her popular hits such as God Bless the Child and All of Me, the memory of Holiday has endured through generations of jazz lovers.
Hollingsworth-Marley is a popular vocalist, having appeared at numerous community, church and jazz events. She is also a storyteller who has performed in many venues including the National Hispanic Cultural Center and the African American Pavilion at Expo New Mexico.
Future Chautauquas include Music from the Ranch and the Open Range on March 26; Traditional New Mexico Folk Music on April 23; and Sephardic Jews in N.M. - Stories and Songs on June 25. All performances are on Sunday at 2pm. All are free to attend.
Throughout the year, the KiMo will travel through the decades with trivia, "then and now" posts and "remember when" features. The KiMo invites the community to join in by posting memories and photos on social media using #KiMo90. Back in 1937, the KiMo screened Green Light starring Errol Flynn and Anita Louise. Also that year was the Fall Fashion Revue presented by the National Garment Co., Paris Shoe Store and Jack Lawler's Beauty Salon.

The Daily Word in more Trump horse sheet, legalizing cannabis in New Mexico and a meteor
Just one meteor but a dandy one
By Geoffrey Plant [ Tue Feb 7 2017 9:43 AM ]
While unlikely to happen soon, legal recreational cannabis use is closer than ever to becoming reality in New Mexico.
Fat lady who fell in comical fashion while riding a scooter and shopping for gallons of soda pop in a Walmart is speaking out about how everyone is laughing at her and it isn't funny.
President Trump wants you to know that there are thousands of terrorist attacks killing innocent midwest farmers and average Euro Svens news of which is being suppressed by evil media companies. Like Weekly Alibi, for instance. We could have reported on the briefcase nuke that destroyed UNM's Valencia campus, but rah rah terrorism (raspberry sound).
There isn't any actual skateboarding but still, this Russian skater is pretty damn high up in the air on the edge of a skyscraper, uh ... with his skateboard.
Finally we may rest assured that huge amounts of LSD will not "fry" your brain and turn it into swiss cheese on a stale Trisket. You might develop a mental problem tho but that's different.
Let us all—all of us adults—enjoy Alistair Crowley's completely obscene 666 word poem about his girlfriend, who, in a tamer moment, he once compared to a hoover vacuum.
Here for your further enjoyment or, maybe, just to induce uncontrollable rage, is every tweet Trump has tweeted in the time he has had the POTUS Twitter account!
