Play Like a Girl: Mala Maña 'We Have Released a CD' Party

Percussion-heavy, girl-centric supergroup Mala Maña gets audiences moving whenever they play. By virtue of her membership in this band, Alibi delivery driver Alyson Steinman gets nods wherever she drops off the current issue of Albuquerque's free weekly. A veteran musician in the Albuquerque worldbeat scene, every fifth or so time I speak to Alyson, someone else inevitably approaches her asking, “Aren't you in that girl group that plays drums?” Indisputably popular live, Mala Mana now officially offers a recording to accompany your drive to the CNM Westside campus, clean the house by, pull weeds with, dance or sing along to, whatever—and you are hereby invited to their CD release party at Bandito Hideout (2128 Central SE) tonight. There will be dancing. A paltry three clams gets one into this all-ages event beginning at 8 p.m., so most budgets will be able to handle Mexican food and drink as well as some nifty band merch; for the ladies, Mala Maña panties are this season's must-have item. Talented Afropop musicians one and all, these girls play well together, and they do it with a Chicana sensibility that is muy Nuevo Mexico.

Bread of the Dead

and other Dia de los Muertos recipes

November 1st, the Day of the Dead, is nearly upon us, and that means marigolds, skeletal makeup and altars built to honor the deceased. But don’t forget the food!

It is traditional for celebrants to honor departed loved ones by cooking up their favorite meals and placing a portion on a memorial altar or even on the person’s grave itself, symbolically sharing the food with those who have passed on.

Over at the Fiery Foods Blog, Dave DeWitt, Patrick Holian and former Alibi food editor Gwyneth Doland have put together some Dia de los Muertos appropriate recipes for you to use in your celebration of the lives of those who are now gone. Enjoy!

The gimmick of a mask was first adopted by American wrestlers wishing to take on another identity and grapple in other leagues. In Mexico,   mascarados   are considered sacred and are never removed in public. The legendary   enmascarado   El Santo was buried in his gimmick. A wrestler who is stripped of his mask in the ring is shamed.
