Is This Thing On?

stANNEd UP Comedy Showcase • Anne Heche • Steven Michael Quezada • Fred Hawkes • Lauren Poole

By Joshua Lee
The greatest minds of Weekly Alibi met behind closed doors earlier this week to hash out a heated debate. After hours of flag-waving, name-calling and flagrant insubordination, the wet-eyed staff emerged with a consensus: This event is dubbed “stANNEd UP Comedy Showcase” because Anne Heche is definitely performing stand-up comedy. Real news. Join the comediANNE (come on, kids—this is so easy) for a night of odd premises featuring performances by Steven Michael Quezada (also real news), Fred Hawkes and a slew of local comedians and musicians at the El Rey Theater this Friday, Aug. 24, at 8pm. Tickets for the all-ages show start at $15.

SOMOS ABQ • Andrew McMahon • In The Wilderness • Jay Electronica • hip-hop • NGHTMRE • EDM

By August March
SOMOS is a huge, highly visible multi-festival that's been held Downtown since last year, when acts like Del the Funky Homosapien and Minus the Bear headlined. 2018's featured musical performers Saturday, Aug. 25 include Andrew MacMahon, a cyberage singer-songwriter who sings songs like “Cecilia and the Satellite” and “Synesthesia.” Like many who follow his pop-punk inclinations, dude's from the OC. Then there's Nghtmre, the project of a DJ and producer Tyler Mareni, from El Lay. He digs a sort of trap that has evolved into a sound called future bass. That's when a heavy 808 bass line is surrounded by detuned analog synthesizer accompaniments and is played at dubstep tempos, yo. NoLa hip-hop artist Jay Electronica, an MC—one of the favorites of J Dilla and Mr. Porter—who has been called “some sort of hip-hop Jack Kerouac, opens. Pretty dang futuristic programming choices, folks. Ask your kids if you're not getting that; the festival features such a high culture quotient— all sorts of local chow choices, fascinating demonstrations of technology, roving performances, large scale art installations and a comedy lineup that deserves its own press—that it will be a blast for all ages. General Admission tickets to this event along the Central Avenue corridor (the main stage is at Sixth Street and Central) cost $12.50. SOMOS occurs from 4 to 10pm.
