Tip-Top psych band the Pink Mountaintops at Low Spirits TONIGHT!
By Geoffrey Plant [ Tue May 6 2014 2:42 PM ]
The weirder and, in this writer's opinion, the more interesting of Stephen McBean's two mountain-named bands (the other being Black Mountain) the Pink Mountaintops is playing Low Spirits tonight. No self-respecting lover of drug music will miss this. My friend Pierre LaFarge turned me on to this Vancouver-based bunch of weirdoes a week or so ago and there's been nothing else on my speakers since. Can't wait for the sun to set so we can all see the Pink Mountaintops, who are touring in support of their new album Get Back. Did I mention the show is only TEN BUCKS!? C'mon!

Canada's conservative government is going all Reagan on your ass with this crime bill.
This bicycle plays records.
You must watch this nifty/naughty stop-motion Spike Jonze short.
Was Gaddafi the richest man in the world?
Uber-expensive new metallurgy laboratory (read as "nuclear bomb factory") in Los Alamos continues to freak everyone out.
C&O Canal water-bridge (aqueduct) over water has been restored. Neat.

Which RUSH song is stuck in your head right now?
Did you know RUSH had a drummer BEFORE Neil Peart?

Art boxes deployed!
By Marisa Demarco [ Wed Aug 24 2011 4:21 PM ]
Scores of submissions came in from Albuquerque's top artists to do makeovers on the Alibi’s distribution boxes. Arts Editor Summer Olsson and Circulation Manager Geoff Plant sifted through the renderings, letters, drawings, blueprints and portfolios to choose the best designs. Plant delivered out-of-commission boxes to the winners. Three weeks later, the beauties came rolling back in, ready to be deployed along Albuquerque's main corridor. The 14 finished boxes are mapped out below.
