The music industry is no easy place to make it. With an immense variety of genres, record labels, a wider variety of audiences than ever before and streaming platforms, music is quite literally at our fingertips. The following is a list of four up and coming female musicians from diverse backgrounds whose work falls into several different genres.
Cut out of the Carson, the Capitol Hill Christmas tree is currently en route to Washington D.C. According to the Capitol Christmas Tree website, the tradition of the Capitol Christmas tree began in 1964. Each year since, the Capitol architect pairs with the United States Forest Service in order to provide Christmas trees for U.S. Capitol Building’s lawn. Capitol Christmas trees are selected from a variety of states. This year, a little piece of New Mexico will be represented in the country's capital. New Mexico has been awarded this honor only two times before.
Last Saturday, the New Mexico Fermentation Festival cultured a good time by featuring the variety of fermented foods and beverages of the state. Located at the Gutierrez-Hubbell House, a 10-acre plot of land in the South Valley, patrons were welcome to sample pickles, cheeses, breads and beers. The event was put on by an all-women team, with the exception of Stephanie Cameron’s (the magazine publisher’s) husband, according to Natalie Donnelly, a staff member of edible magazine.

The campus-renowned manager of the Satellite in the Student Union Building walked away from a legacy of iced coffee, warm muffins and University of New Mexico connections, last Friday. Richard Perce, former community staple at the SUB, experienced his last day of work at Satellite on Friday, Oct. 11. Though many people have seen Perce behind the shiny metal counters of Satellite, he has spent many days outside of the SUB, as well. Not only did he manage to help out with last year's Raza Graduation, but he assisted with University events such as Late Night Breakfast and Friday Night Live, as well. Though his prominence and impact on campus life may allude to him being at UNM for decades, he has only been at the SUB Satellite location for seven years. Before that, he had been working for the company, off and on, for 19 years.
In a small shop off of First Street, just north of Central Avenue, the Urban Taqueria serves tacos with a side of political commentary. With plates such as “Executive Privilege” and “Fake News,” the comfort-food restaurant is generating controversial conversations. Some of the more politically charged plates include “The Wall” burrito, the “Lock Her Up” burrito and the “Wikileaks” taco. Owner Hanif Mohamed said “The Immigrant” taco was often commented on for its sole ingredients: Organic green chile and fried potatoes.
Performing for about two decades now, the Philadelphia based rock band Dr. Dog has their show down to a science. This was proven during their sold-out show last Sunday night at the reality-bending Santa Fe Meow Wolf. Doors opened at 8 p.m., lasting until the concert ended at 11 p.m. Their set list included songs off of their albums “Fate,” “Shame, Shame,” “Be the Void,” “B-Room,” “Abandoned mansion” and “Critical Equation,” along with a song off of their latest, 2019 album. Behind the band, psychedelic projections danced across the House of Eternal Return, tracing the trimming along the roof shingles and making the stage come to life.

New Mexico United and Meow Wolf are taking their relationship to another level. The first-year soccer club will host "Meow Wolf Night" in collaboration with the Santa Fe-based art collective on August 3 at Isotopes Park. The event, a fusion of sport and art declared as unprecedented by club president and CEO Peter Trevisani, will kick off at 7:30 p.m. “We knew from the beginning that bringing together art and soccer specific stadium sport in this way was uncharted territory, but now we are putting it into practice and laying a roadmap for other teams to follow,” Trevisani said in a press release. “Fans will have so much to take in on this night, it will be a truly unique experience.”
