The Alibi's Soggy Summer Dance Jam

Bid bon voyage to summer with your pals the Alibi this Saturday, Sept. 12. We're throwing a maritime-themed dance party with ’70s and ’80s soft rock out the yin-yang. Come dressed as a salty dog, Moby Dick, Jacques Cousteau, a pirate ... any oceanic costume that allows you to swim freely and shake "yarr booty." The Universal DJs Eve, Jessica, Bea and Grey man the jams, guaranteed to have 50 percent more yachts than your average Saturday night playlist—or your money back! Doors open at Burt's Tiki Lounge (313 Gold SW, 21+, free) at 9 p.m.

Homegrown Music at the Fair: Week 1

Tingley Coliseum, Shmingley Shmoliseum. Why give Ticketmaster 55 bucks for Huey Lewis and the News when you can support the local guys for free? (Well, free with admission to the fair, which you were going to have to pay anyway. And that's only $7.) Here's the first week's local lineup at a glance. All performances take place at the Expo New Mexico State Fair Pavilion (300 San Pedro NE).
