Couple of interesting things to put on your list for the week:
Tuesday’s something of a quiet night — not to mention winter suddenly returned, woof — but Miss Shevaughn and Yuma Wray are back in Taos tonight playing the Inn, and the Mark Sexton band is at Taos Mesa Brewing, so you’ve got a couple good options.
AMENDMENT: We originally recommended that you go check out “Celtic Pirate Band” Potcheen; however, we popped down the Inn last night, and it seems that the current makeup of the band is newish (not the foot-stomping, electric-guitar-and-rockin-fiddle-and-etc-configuration that you see if you visit the band’s website or youtube pages).
The new incarnation still has some kinks to work out — the fiddler and guitar player, although both pretty talented, were reading off of charts, and not acting a bit piratey (not the rowdy night out we were hoping for!) and the drummer/front man talks between every song (A LOT… I mean, a LOOOOT), so, we can’t say we were too excited about them.
This frees you up Thursday night to read a book! or have game night with friends! or do your taxes!

On Friday there’s a screening of the documentary Occupy Love up at Unity of Taos, with a special appearance (and Q&A) by the filmmaker, Velcrow Ripper — which it’s a pretty big deal because there are hundreds of screenings all over the world starting this week, but only a handful that Velcrow himself is attending. Supposed to be a very uplifting film, perfect for this windy spring week.
And speaking of things that are uplifting, Saturday is
St. James Episcopal Church’s annual Empty Bowls Fundraiser.
$20 to get in, plus lots of silent auction and raffle goodies — not to mention beautiful bowls!
All the proceeds go towards feeding the hungry in our community. Not many better causes than that.
