Friday Venue

Venue cover story

Hearty dishes Whether it’s meatloaf or mac & cheese, comfort foods warm the heart. Journal food critic Andrea Lin gives some of the best places to find comfort food in the Duke City.

But there’s more music and entertainment inside:

  • Staying balanced Keeping fit and focused is all part of the job when it comes to the members of the Peking Acrobats. The touring company from China will perform twice — 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20 — at Popejoy Hall on UNM’s campus.
  • Going solo After making music as part of Albuquerque hip-hop outfit 2bers, rapper Bles Infinite is going at it alone with his current album, “Casual Anarchy.” The hip-hop artist will release his album at 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18 at Sister in Downtown Albuquerque.
  • Finding middle ground Arizona-based indie outfit Calexico have been hard at work the past couple years making its way into the film realm. Oh, but the band also found time to record its current album, “Algiers.” The band will perform at 7 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 20 at Sunshine Theater. Opening for the band will be Trampled by Turtles and Toronto-based indie band Bahamas.
  • In the details Willy Porter has made a name for himself as a great guitarist. He begins his tour in 2013 with a stop at the Cell Theatre at 8 p.m. Friday, Jan. 18. He is touring in support of his recent EP, “Cheeseburgers and Gasoline.”
  • What corruption? Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe star in “Broken City,” a film which is difficult to tell the good guys from the bad guys. Film critic Roger Moore weighs in on the film.
