Eighth Annual Holiday Sleeping Bag Drive
Baby, It's Bad Out There
In the words of Dean Martin, “Baby, it's cold outside.” So lend a helping hand to the homeless folks in Burque by contributing to Astro-Zombies' 8th Annual Holiday Sleeping Bag Drive. Now through Saturday, Dec. 24, drop off new, adult-sized cold weather sleeping bags at the comic store to help local homeless people weather the winter cold. The bags will be distributed throughout the community on Christmas Eve. And for each bag you donate, you'll also be entered in a raffle to win awesome prizes from the likes of Masks Y Mas, Rude Boy Cookies, Archetype Dermigraphic Studio and more. After all, when told, “Baby, you'd freeze out there,” even Dean's lady asked him to lend her a coat. (Renée Chavez)
The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment
What do flamenco dancers, shepherdesses and a storyteller doll have in common? A nutcracker, that's what. The Festival Ballet Albuquerque, with choreography by Patricia Dickinson Wells and a full orchestra guided by Maestro Guillermo Figueroa, presents The Nutcracker Ballet in the Land of Enchantment—the traditional story with New Mexican flair this weekend Dec. 16-18, at the National Hispanic Cultural Center. Enjoy the classic characters recreated with local interpretations as Spanish and flamenco dancers with native animals like snakes, sheep and hummingbirds coupled with some flaming pyrotechnics. The show on Friday begins at 7pm, Saturday's shows are at 2pm and 7pm, and Sunday's show is at 2pm. Tickets range from $14-$47 with $2 off for seniors and children. (Megan Reneau)
I've heard the love of God described as encompassing and immersive, which is what you'll experience this Friday, Dec. 16, at Popejoy Hall.

In addition to conducting, Melone will also play the harpsichord—not simultaneously, unfortunately. Revel in this moving oratorio from 7:30-10:30pm for only $20-$50. Student discounts are available with a valid ID. (Nina Ferrell)
