Thanks to artists like Eva Avenue, Marya Errin Jones and Andrew Lyman, Burque’s zine scene has been pumping out some quality DIY lit for the past several years. These zinesters—and many others—bring their Xeroxed glory to the first ever ABQ Zine Fest, which kicks off tonight at Cellar Door Gifts & Gallery. While attending the zine mixer, rock out to jams from The Scrams, Lady Uranium and The Deadtown Lovers. Get full details on the rest of the weekend’s festivities in this week’s Alibi.
UPDATE: The Scrams and Lady Uranium have been scratched from the bill. 15 Polk St. has been added and DJs Mello and Caterwaul will spin.
New series at The Center for Grooviness welcomes creative music and arts
By Mel Minter
Trombonist Christian Pincock, curator of the new series at The Center for Grooviness, and his partner, Deian McBryde, are dedicated to helping people get in the groove—one way or the other. Their Central Avenue space hosts both the self-explanatory Nob Hill Yoga Center and The Center for Grooviness, which is dedicated to presenting unconventional music and arts. Both enterprises invite you to come in, kick off your shoes, lie down (not compulsory) and give yourself up to the moment at hand.
