Alibi Covers Retrospective
Music to Your Ears
The Art of Alibi
This month marks 20 years of newspapering in New Mexico on the part of this mighty alternative publication. In that time, the Alibi has fostered the creation of copious art, including 1,002 covers and counting. To celebrate the milestone we decided to mull over the corpulent archives and curate a little show that looks back on two decades. Along with the collection of our favorite covers, other mementoes and office curiosities will be sprinkled in for good measure. Find out just how hostile staffers can become when someone takes the last of the coffee and neglects to make more.
Hangin in the Alley
Not just for winos
A lot of times you can find good stuff for your house in alleys, like the cinderblocks and old door you need for a new coffee table. This Saturday, there will be even better, brand new, original accouterments for your dwelling in the alleys. Well, at least the one behind Walgreens on Central. A rogue band of artists is determined to use every available space to show art, including the nontraditional locales usually reserved for trash and broken glass. Thank you, brave creatives, for helping to transform ugliness into inspiration. “Art for everyone” will be in the thoroughfare from noon to 8 p.m.

Among the office buildings and lofts of Downtown is Warehouse 508, the much anticipated and recently opened First Street youth center for arts, music and entertainment.
