Win a pair of tickets to Michael Fitzpatrickcello performance and Compassion Rising film preview

Tamara Fitzpatrick, New York

We’re looking forward to next Wednesday, Oct. 27’s evening of music and film at the National Hispanic Cultural Center, a benefit for Albuquerque’s RigDzin Dharma Center. The featured performer is cellist Michael Fitzpatrick, a Prince Charles Award recipient for outstanding musicianship (bestowed by the Prince of Wales himself) in a program of meditative original compositions. "The emotion induced by Michael Fitzpatrick's music is so powerful it seems almost verbalized,” says H.H. Dalai Lama. “His music brings peace to the world."

Also in the spotlight is a preview for the film Compassion Rising, featuring Tibet's Drepung Loseling Monks, world-renowned for their multiphonic chants.

Reserved $15-$25 tickets are available at the NHCC Box Office (1701 Fourth Street SW, 724-4771), but one lucky alibi.com reader will win a free pair!

Just share an example of compassion that you’ve personally experienced (in the comment area below). We’ll pick one karmicly gifted respondent and announce the winner on Tuesday, Oct. 26. Good luck!

The Grownup Noise

Being flipped off never felt so good

When Boston's The Grownup Noise plays a show in Beantown, there's usually a solid turnout.

The fan base took about four years to fully cultivate. It began with family and friends, then strangers started taking notice. "When we first started, we would ask ourselves, Do they really like it, or are they just being nice?" singer and guitarist Paul Hansen recalls. "It's gotten to the point where a lot of them tend to be people we don't know. So, unless everyone's just being really nice, they actually like us."
