Catching a Buzz with Chicharra

Basses and drums and rocanrol

By August March

During summer months en el alto desierto the hot sun seems permanent and the blue sky infinite. Cicadas—mysterious insects that dwell underground for many years—dig themselves out of the earth. They climb trees and shed the larval skin of youth, becoming animals with powerful wings, and in unison, a tremendous, percussive voice. The drone, the deep buzz that comes from millions of these creatures adds a layer of musical intensity to an environment that is already saturated with color and light and temperature.

The Acre Brings Accessible Farm-to-Table Food to Albuquerque

Shawn Weed makes vegetarian comfort food for everyone—not just vegetarians

By Robin Babb
While I’m a big fan of the farm-to-table trend and the environmental sustainability that it stands for, I’m less thrilled about the pretensions and price tags that tend to come along with it. Which is why it was so refreshing to talk with Shawn Weed, the chef and restaurateur who has a vision for accessible farm-to-table food at his new restaurant The Acre, opening Nov. 10 in the Northeast Heights.
