  • Treat your ears to country-rock-soul

    According to Los Alamos County Summer Concert Series promoter Russ Gordon, one of his favorite concerts in the last 25 years was the Austin country-rock-soul band, the Gourds, who performed at the Pajarito Ski Area four years ago.
    Their lead singer/front man is Kev “Shinyribs” Russell. Those that have never seen the Gourds or don’t remember the show might want to catch this Friday’s Shinyribs concert at Ashley Pond.
    “The Gourds have two songwriters and singers, plus they’re a democratic band where they all argue over who controls the performances and CD production,” Gordon said.

  • Comic-Con to celebrate history, heritage

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — This week’s Comic-Con pop-cultural extravaganza in San Diego may not be as cutting-edge cool as you think.
    Several of the festival’s franchise favorites are showing off their ages this year as they celebrate milestone birthdays, including Tarzan at 100, James Bond at 50 and those strapping 20-year-olds, the Power Rangers.
    Other beloved characters blowing out serious candles at this year’s 43rd annual Comic-Con will be Prince Valiant (75), Alfred E. Neuman and his Mad Magazine (60) and Buffy the Vampire Slayer (20). The four-day convention begins Thursday and is expected to drive more than 100,000 die-hard fans to the San Diego Convention Center.

  • Rebooting 'Spider-Man,' in a flash

    NEW YORK (AP) — On a weekend in January of 2010, Sony Pictures and Marvel Studios pivoted faster than even Spider-Man would dare.
    A fourth installment of the hugely popular Spider-man franchise was planned, with director Sam Raimi and star Tobey Maguire returning to their trilogy of films that had earned more than $2.5 billion at the global box office and generally been hailed as a standard-bearer in big-screen comic book adaptations.
