Grrrls, Funky Soul, and SXSF! Oh, My!

Samantha Anne Carrillo

I promise I'll eventually venture away from the aural realm, but there are a few shows happening this weekend that veritably cry out for coverage. And, so far, there ain't been much journalistic interest in these here weekend shows, save that of international darlings A Hawk & A Hacksaw. Don't get me wrong. I dig AHAAH. But it definitely isn't the only bitchin' show happening this weekend.

My Memorias del Subdesarrollo response paper is patiently awaiting my return. So, this blog will take the form of a simple list, with AV aids.


▼ The Fertile Crescent, Glowhouse, and Then Eats Them @ Burt's, 313 Gold SW. 10 p.m. 21+. No cover.

Samantha Anne Carrillo / a fifth-wave feminist from the fourth estate | a burqueña | a ladyboss | a writer + editor

I am a fifth-wave feminist and a reluctant member⸺hey, Groucho knew whereof he quipped⸺of both the fourth estate and the gig economy. I am an Albuquerque-based freelance writer, editor and social media marketing and branding+PR consultant. I remain an observant ’90s riot grrrl and a devout practitioner of halfhearted yoga posturing and zen and the art of the sentence diagram.
