The Daily Word in Ancestors, Serpents and the Woolies

By Joshua Lee [ Sat Feb 4 2017 8:53 AM ]
The Daily Word

A family in Abilene, TX found a rattlesnake in their toilet. Just to be safe, they checked under the house and found 23 more! Oh Jesus on a hotplate, that gives me the woolies something fierce.

Remember that creepy four-legged robot that Boston Dynamics made a few years back? Well, now they've added wheels and more functionality. Check out the leaked video, in which the founder of the company calls the robot "nightmare-inducing." Yeah, no kidding.

Archaeology find of the year: 12,000-year-old remains of a man with huge prostate stones in the Sudan. We're talking about the size of a walnut, here!

Um. I don't want to think of the implications involved in this study. It shows that corn-based diets low in vitamin B3 will make hamsters eat their young.

Tell your friends to move here if they want to escape the dust mite scourge. The coasts are infested with them because they need humidity to survive. Ugh. I could've lived without seeing the microscopic images.

Creepin' crawlers! What a shit day to look at the internet. This snake learned a new trick to lure prey: wagging it's tongue back and forth.

The oldest known relative of human beings was a millimeter long sea creature that didn't have an anus. (Pfft. Maybe yours, bro.) Why is there an artist's rendition? That's it, dammit. I'm done here.

Kinky Curiosities Party February 13th!

Sister, Femme Fatale Burlesque Cabaret & Joy Coy

By Julian Wolf [ Thu Feb 2 2017 2:48 PM ]

At Kinky Curiosities at Sister Bar, not only will we be unveiling the results of the too-hot-for-print sex survey, but we'll also be tantalizing you with fetishistic performances throughout the evening. Burlesque, music and demos will delight you from the main stage as you meander through vendors, tables and the incredibly well-equipped bar. Since this party is at Sister, you can order yourself some tacos as you enjoy the show, but that's true every night. Let me tell you a bit more of what Kinky Curiosities has in store for you.

A trio of dancers will be bringing you all the sugary treats you can handle in the hours before Valentine's Day. We're delighted to welcome the gorgeous women of the Femme Fatale Burlesque Cabaret! The Femme Fatales formed in May of 2016 and set the stage on fire this last June at Pridezilla in their first public appearance. Hailing from across the country, these dynamic women came together with a mutual love of burlesque.

Femme Fatale is influenced by theater, Broadway and classic artists such as Gypsy Rose Lee and Tempest Storm. Morgan Mayhem, Rosie Golden and Madame Delirium will be a force to be reckoned with on the 13th!

How could we celebrate kink and fetish without welcoming strong, powerful queens? We are thrilled to announce a performer whose poise and beauty captivates audiences at every act she does. She is a classically trained dancer with a flair for theatricality, balancing grace and agility in her enchanting performances that meld vivid movement and sensual striptease. In 2011 she began performing burlesque with Albuquerque’s award-winning troupe Burlesque Noir. She quickly became a local favorite in New Mexico and is an up-and-coming performer in the national community, having performed on stages from coast to coast.

Yes, that's right, Joy Coy will be performing! Instructor, producer with Unicorn Productions and someone you asked us to have back after the Inaugural Alibi On Tap, we can't wait to bow down to her glory. With Unicorn Productions, she's producing and performing in WILD on Feb. 11 at the Launchpad. Make sure to keep up with Joy's amazing adventures on Facebook.

Want to learn how to bump and grind with one of the best? Joy Coy's next round of burlesque classes at Tammy's Edge begin Thursday, March 23, so email joycoyabq@gmail.com to sign up.

We still have more to announce —and we're giving you more than your money's worth as always. Go buy your tickets now via Alibi Bucks for only $7. If we don't sell out, they'll be $10 at the door.

James Whiton and the Leeches of Lore!

Collaborative effort will be mind-blowing, say music experts

By August March [ Thu Feb 2 2017 1:54 PM ]

On Friday, Feb. 24, 2017 we're all going to head up to Santa for a gig that must not be missed and we'd like you to come along too!

Along with the fantastically funky and audaciously avant-garde folks over at Meow Wolf (1352 Rufina Circle, Santa Fe), Weekly Alibi is proud to present a concert featuring some of the best music this town—this state, this nation, this world, this universe for that matter—has to offer.

James Whiton, a master of the bass in all its forms, whether acoustic or electric, just released a new record entitled Perchance to Dream on Cinder Cone Media Worldwide. He'll perform his new work, the entirety of the album, that night.

And if that ain't enough to knock your head into a distant galaxy, then prepare yourself for Whiton's special guests, Burque's legendary Leeches of Lore, an outfit that knows no sonic boundaries.

Experts say this gig will blow your freaking mind.

As Whiton told Weekly Alibi, "This new record, I made it for my damn self. I wanted it to be beautiful and dark. I didn't want someone telling me I had to make it "poppier" or more accessible. I recorded with Howard Wulkan at the Lab, he's got an indie label called Cinder Cone Media, and he told me he wanted me to make the record I wanted to make.

It's a journey. It's about taking those dark and terrible parts of myself, the parts we all pretend don't exist, and making music out of them. The cover art reflects that aesthetic. My friend Norton Wisdom, a brilliant painter from LA, does a lot of live painting with bands and most of the art for this record comes from those performances.

The album uses a lot of classical compositional techniques; themes and motives come in and out as you progress through the songs. I used a lot of sound design between tracks, like those old Pink Floyd records I love so much. I think it helps the record tell the story, puts the listener right where I want them to be to experience the song.

It's instrumental music, so the listener is free to make their own assumptions, but I also wanted to set the scene a little bit. I use the sound design to let your ears know where I was coming from when I conceived of the piece."

Sounds, pretty cool, eh? Tickets for this 9pm, 21+ elusively genre-busting concert are only $10.

There're available here.

So be there or continue to portray yourself as L7, okay?
