Pregnant clones one of a kind

It's always exciting for a reporter to find an unexposed, fledgling band that possesses all the qualities of a group destined for greatness. That's what I found in the Pregnant Clones.

Red Earth a `tribal stew' of funk, reggae, metal

Red Earth is one of those local bands that just can't be categorized. The eight ethnically-varied members of the band - with a few lineup changes - have been mixing up their politically-charged bouillabaisse of funk, reggae, ska, punk and metal for about five years.

Battson's `Obsession' monologue is brilliant

Few actors can make a one-hour monologue bearable, much less a pleasure. Jill Battson is a delightful exception to this rule. Battson's original monologue, "486-8474 Or: How I Learned to Live With Obsession," is nothing short of brilliant. Add to this Battson's heartfelt performance, and one has theater at its best.

Reviving Teatro Campesino

It's not just the acting; it's the acto. The playwriting form called acto is based on theories put forth by Luis Valdez and his Teatro Campesino and is firmly rooted in social commentary; it is on these principles that the multi-play show "Almas" is based.

Familia is basis of comedy in ‘Tortilla’

Ridin'

New Mexicans know what a Lowrider is. Most have likely seen their elaborate detailing and flashy rims parading Central Avenue. Lowrider art can now be found in one of the National Hispanic Cultural Center's gallery. At the opening of the exhibit this past weekend, the proprietors of "Low 'n' Slow: Lowriding in New Mexico" discussed their attraction to this rarely acknowledged art form.

`Only' light, jazzy blue grass

I don't profess to be a fan of adult-contemporary instrumental music, so it's hard to not grin and think about shopping at Borders when I listen to Only, the most recent release from Australian guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel.
