8th Annual ABQ Blues and Brews

Ready to Cross the Fine Line

Here on this portion of the North American continent, summer symbolically starts on Memorial Day Weekend. As DuBose Heyward famously proclaimed, it's “Summertime and the livin' is easy. Fish are jumpin' and the cotton is high.” With such Arcadian visions in mind, it's time for the 8th Annual Albuquerque Blues and Brews Festival, to be held Sunday, May 27 at the Sandia Casino Resort and Amphitheater. This yearly celebration of pentatonic scales and their human emotional responses when exposed to fermented barley and hop-based beverages is an essential experience for locals and tourists wondering how we all pass the time out in the high desert. Featured artists include Alex Maryol, Rudy Boy Jaramillo, Todd Tijerina and the Memphis P. Tails. With over 20 local and regional brewers and dozens of community businesses representing, this is a great event for all. Tickets range in price from $10 to $65 and the event rock and rolls from 2 until 6pm. (August March)
