Man, oh, man. Besides this week being the annual big gay party that is Albuquerque Pride (see this week’s feature schedule), a handful of festivals of less rainbow-y stripes are taking place around these parts.

1st Street Smash

There’s a smash happening Downtown on First Street, and it goes by the name of 1SS. This youth-oriented amalgam of music, poetry, art and film is modeled after Austin’s SXSW (minus the perpetual drunkenness) and takes place Thursday, June 10, through Saturday, June 12. Warehouse 508 hosts, and the Alibi is one of the sponsors. Workshops, screenings and performances abound, all of which are free to underagers. Adults must fork over a $5 donation. For details and full schedules, go to

Festival Flamenco Internacional de Alburquerque 2010

Four days of Flamenco transpire at the University of New Mexico and the National Hispanic Cultural Center beginning Wednesday, June 9, and wrapping up Saturday, June 12. Between performances, films, workshops and a history conference, this festival contains more poufy skirts and palmas than your blistered feet ever dreamed of. For more, swing by Vamo’ ya!

Thirsty Ear Festival

Roots music, camping, local beer, healthy food, crafts, demos, sustainable energy exhibits and other hippie-oriented things converge on the Eaves Movie Ranch in Santa Fe on Saturday, June 12, and Sunday, June 13. The festival begins at 1 p.m. each day. Tickets cost $35 to $85, and kids under 12 get in for free. Noted performers include the Sam Bush Band, Dave Alvin & The Guilty Women and Asleep at the Wheel. For a full schedule of performers and other details, go to


Following a weeklong camp, ZoukFest’s world music instructors perform in closing concerts on Friday, June 11, and Saturday, June 12, at the Outpost Performance Space (210 Yale SE). Friday’s show features Balkan, Celtic, bluegrass and old-time music, while Saturday’s show contains mostly Irish music. Both bouzouki-filled shows begin at 7:30 p.m. and are $15 in advance, $20 at the door. Go to for more.
