Free Sunday Afternoon Chautauqua Performances

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.

Kinky Curiosities Party February 13th!

Crew, Live Music and Visuals for Days

At Alibi Fetish Events, even our crew is as beautiful and intriguing as our performers. Joining us to lend their strength to the stage, we're welcoming two beauties from the Duke City's boylesque scene, Eddi Fication and Rick O'Shea!

Eddi Fication is a member of Cabaret Audacity and will be performing at WILD this Saturday at Launchpad. He is the quadruple threat you didn't know you needed in your life and will be joining the Cabaret Band to flex more than just his muscles.

Rick O'Shea is part of the Sons of Perdition and is an accomplished power lifter and dancer. His experience on stage includes credits such as being part of the shadowcast of the Rocky Horror Picture Show and in the ballet Dracula. Frequently seen on dance floors across our city, we're delighted to have him join us for Kinky Curiosities.

The Cabaret Audacity Band is lead by Arcane —an accomplished boylesque dancer as Satyricon, musician, professional kinkster and model. His prowess on the keyboards is infamous and his skills with a flogger are somewhat legendary. Arcane has been working, traveling and creating music with me for longer than we care to count, and he'll be accompanying one of our performers for a burlesque number, playing original music and passionate covers during some demos, and helping set the mood for the night throughout our party. He is as talented as he's pretty to look at, and we're going to make sure you get a good look. Care to hear more from Arcane and the Cabaret Audacity Band? Join us for the Vaudeville Open Mic every third Wednesday at the Sidewinders Cabaret Theater.

The results from our too-hot-for-print Sex Survey will be revealed from the stage through the art of of our incredible VJ Lithochasm. You've likely seen his dynamic work at Alchemy on Thursdays at Effex and at Oscillation Electronic Music Festival. He'll be projecting scintillating visuals throughout our party, and we can't wait to see what he's cooked up for us.

Kinky Curiosities Party February 13th!

Leather and Lace

Kinky Curiosities is more than just a reveal and a show, we're also hosting community tables and we have a contingent from the Leather community!

New Mexico has a long history of titleholders to represent the Leather community, and one of our current titles is Corazon Leather, which happens annually at the Leather Fiesta conference. This year, Catherine and Jinx the Lynx are serving as Ms Corazon Leather 2016! Be sure to stop by and say hello. They'll be hosting a table where they can answer questions, and they'll have tickets to upcoming events and wares to delight you. They're also sharing space with Bootblack Dani, who will be available to shine your shoes, boots, leather corsets and more —bring money to tip the performers and your bootblack!

Catherine has been an enthusiastic member of the New Mexico community volunteering at various events and using her skills as a pole dancer to raise money for various causes for several years. Early in 2016 she started Twizted Wax Works and began producing wax play candles in a variety of intensities, she applies her familiarity with wax play to teach popular hands-on as well as purely informational classes. In the coming year, Catherine is looking forward to growing her business and expanding on her knowledge of all things kinky as she travels the country while serving as Ms. Corazon Leather 2016.

Jinx the Lynx has been playing, working and volunteering in the New Mexico community for years. She gives most of her time to a local non-profit Bully-type dog breed advocacy group that raises money for rescues and shelters in need across the state. She has used her silver tongue to talk money out of people's wallets and purses for various fundraisers in the kinky and vanilla community over the years. When not volunteering, she can be found reading and rescuing animals. Jinx teaches various classes and lectures on topics both kinky and vanilla. She is the current stand-in facilitator of education at the Wet Munch and a First Aid/CPR/AED instructor. Her favorite thing is bloodsport, but don't worry, she's not hunting Monday. In the coming year, Jinx wishes to raise money to better her local community by providing funds for non-profit groups and she plans to continue to serve as Ms. Corazon Leather 2016 for the rest of her life.

New Mexico is also home to the Albuquerque Leather Daddys, a local group of Leather enthusiasts who host a monthly Gear Night the first Saturday of every month at Sidewinders Bar. What's Gear Night? It's a theme night for you to wear your favorite fetish-wear, have a few drinks amid other hot folks, maybe watch some demos (I tied some decorative bondage on a very handsome muscle bear after the Jock Strap Contest which was, in fact, a bunch of hot people on stage stripping down to their jocks while the crowd went crazy), get your boots shined and dance to an eclectic mix from the resident (award winning) DJ. Every year they do fundraisers for folks like Casa Q (a great local charity) and usually enjoy a ruckus entry in the Albuquerque Pride Parade. One of the founders of the Albuquerque Leather Daddys was the first Rio Grande Leather Titleholder with yours truly back in 2004, and we still enjoy working together. The Daddys will be hosting a table and offering us two live kink demos at Kinky Curiosities.

Oh what wonders await you next Monday! Buy your tickets now, invite your friends, get yourself a date or three. We'll be announcing drink specials and the rest of our cast and crew of curiosities this week, so stay tuned. RSVP on Facebook, on Fetlife (for those already in the know.) Cameras and phones are allowed at the event so feel free to Tweet and post to Instagram with the hashtag #AlibiFetishEvents.

The Daily Word in more Trump horse sheet, legalizing cannabis in New Mexico and a meteor

Just one meteor but a dandy one

The Daily Word

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.

A spectacular meteor zoomed across a pile of states and part of Canada Monday morning.

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!
