A lovely Spring Social
Yesterday’s mini-snow was preceded by a peek at real N.M. spring—days of blissful warmth with little wind.
On such a day, fine folks gathered at Launchpad for a psychedelic picnic. There was much rejoicing. The place looked the best I’ve ever seen it, thanks to the handywork of Bee Bee the Clown, Marya Errin Jones and Tahnee Udero.
Stay tuned for the next Alibi Group Hug event: The legendary Al Hurricane and ¡Ask a Mexican! columnist Gustavo Arellano and El Pinto on Wednesday, April 18.

Alibi Spring Social
It’s that time again. Love and all her related allergens are in the air. Unicorns mate in the streets.
Yes, it’s springtime in Albuquerque. Gather, bosom buddies, on Friday, April 22, for a dance party at the Launchpad. There will be frosty treats from Ecco Gelato, organic deli from Make My Lunch and donuts from Donut Mart.
Tie-on those homemade unicorn horns, for the photo booth returns! Photo Booth Rentals of New Mexico provides the service free to you. And we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention Georgia at Balloon Express (109 5th Street SW) who will fill our lives with rainbows and flowers.
Plus, our very own music editor, DJ Cassyle, will spin high-glucose tracks between sets.
New Monster Paws video
Burque electro pop group Monster Paws made a slick new video for its song “Ray of Light.” It depicts a group of hipsters running and frolicking in the sunshine (I hope they put sun block on that beautiful, youthful skin), until an apocalypse happens and transports them to outer space.
See Monster Paws perform live on Friday, April 22, when the Alibi’s Group Hug presents a Spring Social at the Launchpad. Then Eats Them and The Glass Menageries also play, and your truly will deejay sparkly pop music in between sets. For your pleasure, there will be free food, sweet and savory, and free photo booth. Costumes are encouraged. Admission—for those 21-and-over—is only $5. RSVP and invite your friends via Facebook here. See you there!
