Pride Goeth Before a Slam: OUTSpoken Queer Poetry Slam Championship

Tomorrow, follow a parade of swirling colors under the golden apple of the sun and you may stumble on one of the Albuquerque Pride festival’s best kept secrets. The OUTSpoken queer poetry slam is the only one of its kind in the nation. Here, amid myriad sights and inspiring educational events celebrating the LGBTQ spectrum, the OUTSpoken slam championship holds the voice of the queer community aloft, uncensored and necessary. Curated by Erin Northern and sponsored by Pride, the slam packs venues around town once every three months, promoting outreach to and safe spaces for the community. Past winners of the quarterly events compete this Saturday, May 31, for the title of 4th annual OUTSpoken Champion. The verbal pyrotechnics take place in the Indian Arts Gallery at the Expo New Mexico Fairgrounds (300 San Pedro NE). Starting at noon with an open mic for all, the event features a showcase of local poetry icons, followed by the Championship slam at 2pm. Listen. That sound? Their stories, their own words.

Motor to the Expo

Granted, I'm not much of an auto enthusiast, but when you see a slick ride changing lanes on Central, it's pretty darn noticeable. And in that moment, you ask yourself why you're driving a practical Toyota 4Runner instead of a pimped-out 1967 Chevy NOVA. Well, you might not be able to find one that easily, but you can always step over to the 23rd Annual Route 66 Casino Hotel SuperNationals. This is considered to be the “Southwest's largest indoor hot rod & custom car event” and will feature over 200 hot rods, cars, trucks, muscle cars and motorcycles. I'll pass on the motorcycles, but that Chevy NOVA sounds like something I could get behind the wheel of. The event will have various commercial booths, featured builders (including Mitch Peacock, Steve DeMann and more) and, of course, some sweet rides. Vehicles being showcased include a 1919 Ford “Jail Bird Express,” a 1939 Zephyr and a freakin' Hydro Car, which can go “on land or water.” The event takes place at the Lujan Complex at Expo New Mexico (300 San Pedro NE) tomorrow from noon to 9pm, Saturday, Feb. 1, from 10am to 9pm and on Sunday, Feb. 2, from 10am to 6pm. Tickets will run you $15 for adults and $4 for children under 12. Expo New Mexico • Fri Jan 31 • Noon-9pm • $4-$15 • ALL-AGES! • View on Alibi calendar
