  • Slam in Cyberspace

    Fire up the old computer and dial up Zoom to catch the Burque Revolt Online Poetry Slam and Open Mic this Thursday, June 25 starting at 7pm. The local rhyme syndicate decided that it wants to “stay on the precautious side and protect our elders and community members from COVID 19.” Therefore they’re now hosting a monthly all-ages slam online. A $50 cash prize goes out to the night’s top slammer. You can sign up for open mic, poetry slam or to be a judge and/or audience member using Google Forms. For login information on Zoom, go to facebook.com/events/918478561947441. (Devin D. O'Leary)

  • Swingin’ Stream

    Maybe you can’t hang out in your favorite bar right now, but you could crack open a beer from your fridge and listen to a concert in your living room on Saturday, June 27. AMP Concerts presents a live streaming event with folk/gypsy swing trio Zoltan and the Fortune Tellers. From 6 to 7pm the concert streams live on the AMP Facebook page and on YouTube. During the continuing COVID lockdown, many venues throughout Albuquerque remain closed. The folks at AMP have been doing their best to keep some of our local performers employed and to provide entertainment for audiences stuck primarily at home. All artists are being paid for this ongoing online concert series, so if you’d like to donate to AMP Concerts, got to ampconcerts.org. (Devin D. O'Leary)

  • Veggies in Your Van

    Despite our being locked inside for extended periods of time, it’s still summertime, the sun is still shining and plants are still blooming. If you want to take advantage of some of that freshly sprouted produce, you have until Thursday at noon to shop with Railyard Market vendors (http://railyardsmarket.org/Drive-Thru-Market.php) and reserve your fresh veggies, foods and other items from a variety of local merchants. Then head directly to The Railyards Market Farm to Car event on Sunday June 28 from 10am to 1pm and workers will safely load your order into your car. (Devin D. O'Leary)

  • Edgy

    City on the Edge is a breezy, smart podcast looking at the stories from Albuquerque history that have often been overlooked. Each episode takes a deep dive into a topic like the 1955 crash of TWA flight 260, Sandia Man or the 1918 quarantine. Worthwhile listening that will spur your curiosity about things you didn’t even know about in the city where you live. It’s free and available wherever you get your podcasts. (Clarke Condé)
