    You could be forgiven for mistaking the ukulele for a tiny guitar, but it's actually a unique instrument with its own flavor and style. And—as Tiny Tim will tell you—the Hawaiian instrument has the habit of turning anyone who touches it into an instant rock star. Get your taste of fame and fortune by visiting the Albuquerque Ukekopelli Festival this Friday to Sunday, Sept. 27 through 29, at the African American Performing Arts Center at Expo New Mexico. This year's theme is “Come Together,” and ukulele lovers of all ages are invited to enjoy the hits of The Beatles performed by ukulele musicians. Friday kicks off at 8:30am and Saturday begins at 8am. Tickets start at $25. (Joshua Lee)

  • Wanted: Your Best Photographs

    Shutterbugs gather up your best pieces and pick some to submit for hanging in the new Bernalillo County headquarters when the gov-peeps move to Alvarado Square, happening now until Monday, August 31. The selected photographs will be printed in a large scale and format. They will be used to create a welcoming environment for county customers, county employees and the general public. Some will be used on the windows of the new Bernalillo County Sheriff’s Office suite. The photographs should represent the history and character of Bernalillo County and its people, places, landscapes and unique events in our county. There are some big bucks involved as chosen photographers will receive $1,500, with a limit of one photograph per artist. The chosen photos will become part of the public art program’s permanent collection. There is no fee or age limit required to submit. For more information, visit Ends August 31. (Carolyn Carlson)
