Familiar indie comedy invites some odd guests to the party

Family is a mild cultural curiosity for parents, who will no doubt pepper their kids with questions afterward. Good luck with that. Woot, woot.

Hump the Pain Away

Hump Fest

For the third year in a row, author, journalist and LGBTQ+ activist Dan Savage brings his touring amateur art porn festival HUMP! Fest back to Albuquerque. Understandably for you vanillas out there, this might sound terrifying. Watching the most unusual, and honestly thought-provoking, pornography in a theater surrounded by strangers could be a nightmare. If you appreciate sex and quality cinema, we assure you that this is a really cool experience. Appreciatively, there is a disclaimer at the beginning of each showing explaining the rules. The rules are basically this: Don't make obnoxious comments and keep your hands to yourself. Pretty simple. As in years past, the festival is hosted at Guild Cinema and has brought short films that run the gamut of emotions. This juried collection of works run Thursday, Jan. 30 through Saturday, Feb. 1 with showings at 7pm and again at 9pm each night. Tickets are $18 and you must be over 18 to get your rocks off with strangers.
