Albuquerque's newest Open Space area is a 4-mile, 1,000 foot BioZone along the largely ephemeral Tijeras Creek just east of Albuquerque along old Route 66. The Creek feeds Albuquerque's aquifer, making it critical for the city's water supply, as well as an oasis for variety of plants and animals. The site contains several cool old buildings and amazing cottonwood trees. It's going to be a strikingly beautiful place for concerts!

The Roswells perform classic country music from the 1940s-1960s. The band is comprised of two husband and wife duos—Kateri y Gregorio López-Glassman (co-founder of Lone Piñon), and Dave and Laura Devlin on pedal steel and upright bass.
"The Roswells bring the nostalgia of the second and third generation of country music into the millennia. Singing songs of western swing and honky tonk greats, they add their own unmistakable Nuevo Mexico tejano influence, evident when they switch almost on spur of the moment, from Buck Owens to Al Hurricane. Their blend of harmonies is that of Johnny and June, Dolly and Porter, Loretta and Conway.
Part angst, but all love."
